Abby Cat And The Angels

Abby Cat Watching Angels 7-14-15

Most evenings David and I settle down in our comfy recliners to watch a movie. Tomboy Cat curls up in David’s lap and Abby Cat in mine…..a sweet little family scene. However, every night Abby Cat finds it difficult to curl up and go to sleep. After all, she has to watch the angels.

Yes, she watches the angels up above our heads in the corner of our den; she watches them as they move across the den, totally unafraid and undisturbed. Friends, before you offer an explanation let me make a comment. If she saw a bug, she would not remain calm, but vigorously pursue it, leaping to catch it if it came into reach, which has happened. It is not dust in the air; nothing new there. We have dust in the air all the time and she ignores it. Good thing!

Any friend who has known me at least a year or two, has probably heard my stories about how our three babies watched the angels. They did a little more than watch them….they “communicated” with them….with little arms stretched out toward them, waving slightly, and saying darling little baby words and smiling. This happened at different times with each of the three children. I loved it.

Yes, of course, I believe in angels; our Lord Jesus Christ spoke of them frequently, they are mentioned hundreds of times in His Holy Word. By the way, Our Lord spoke about heaven, also, and that’s all the proof I need or will ever need that heaven exists. Even a causal word search through the Holy Bible will confirm the existence and ministry of angels. Who am I to question it?

Why shouldn’t our babies believe in the angels, just as their parents do? One of the songs, I sang to them almost every night of their lives before they fell asleep spoke of angels. I confirmed their faith in God’s Word and His protection of them over and over again.

“All night, all day.
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
All night, all day.
Angels watching over me.

Sun is a-setting in the West;
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
Sleep my child, take your rest;
Angels watching over me.

All night, all day.
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
All night, all day.
Angels watching over me.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
Angels watching over me.

All night, all day.
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
All night, all day.
Angels watching over me.”

(ANGELS WATCHING OVER ME…..Author unknown)

“Are not angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” Hebrews 1:14

(Oh my, even the verse I use to sign off in my blogs and emails mentions angels.)

“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the arch-angel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16

Now that’s something to look forward to; in fact, it is referred to as “the blessed hope.” Can’t wait!

  1. I believe Abby Cat is watching your angel! I recently read a story about a Satan-worshipper who saw two large angels with flaming swords protecting the house of a Christian family that he was trying to curse!

  2. What a great reminder of a old song that I know! I’m thankful for such a wonderful blessed hope we have! All the best to you and David!
