" When God Created Mothers "
When the good Lord was creating mothers He was into
His sixth day of "overtime" when the angel appeared and said, "You're
Doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."
And the Lord said, "Have you read the specs on this order?"
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic;
Have 180 moveable partsall replaceable;
Run on black coffee and leftovers ;
Have a lap that disappears when she stands up ;
A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a
disappointed love affair;
And six pairs of hands;
The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of
"It's not the hands that are causing me problems," said the
Lord. "It's the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have."
"That's on a standard model?" asked the angel.
The lord nodded. "One pair that sees through closed doors
When she asks, "What are you kids doing in there?" when she already
Knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn't
But what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can
look at a child when he goofs up and say, "I Understand and I Love You"
without so much as uttering a word."
"Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve gently, "Come to bed.
"I can't," said the Lord, "I'm so close to creating
something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when
she is sickcan feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger
and can get a nine-year-old to stand under a shower."
The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly.
"It's too soft," she sighed.
"But tough!" said the Lord excitedly. "You cannot imagine
what this mother can do or endure."
"Can it think?"
"Not only think, but it can reason and compromise,"
said the Creator.
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the
Cheek. "There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told You, You were trying to
Put too much into this model."
"It's not a leak," said the Lord, "it's a tear."
"What's it for?"
"It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness
"You are a genius," said the angel.
The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put it there."
Two Souls United Make One Angel
by Gerald England
Quietly a hospital lost another patient
while a son was being driven
to his sick father's side too late
It was Sunday but the wrong time of the month
and a woman ill at home in bed
waited the return of the driver
Somewhere in a distant bed
the mother of his child
was mourning for herself
Another mother left her sick child
to attend the bereaved
on a warm afternoon walk
Sympathy saturated souls
sought out the threads that bound
at least one angel was made

Angel of the Night
by danette m. wiegel
From deep within the darkest brush lay a soul at his weakest point in life, his
clothes are tore, his body cold, he has just lost his wife. A broken heart has taken
all away from his everything, and just when he has given up hope, from the sky he
sees something. A tiny light is floating down and helps him to his feet, and places
up upon his head her hand and speaks "defeat". Tis his dismay does he see an
angel resembling his wife, "my love" she speaks "I am your strength to guide you
through your life", "I had to go, it was my time, but I am still here with you, to help
you and to guide you, in everything you do", with this in mind the man just smiled
and brushed away the dirt, dried his eyes, and washed his hands and replaced his
tore up shirt. He took a deep breath and spoke not a word as he smiled to this
sight, and walked away tucked by his side, with this tiny little light.

Raindrops From Heaven,
The Tears Of An Angel
by Sharon McGuire
Raindrops from Heaven, tears of an Angel you see, To drench your soul, flood
your heart, her love pouring free. Little sprinkles of her hearts light , refreshing and
new, To glisten on your soul like fresh morning dew. Let her love wash over you
from the Heaven's above, To soak into your heart, and fill you with love. A love
that is soothing as warm summer showers, A love filled with strong emotions and
healing powers. Please cherish this love, given straight from her heart, It comes
from her inner being, her souls deepest part. Raindrops sent from the Heaven's
above, Are tears of an Angel longing for her true love.
Puddles are pools of tears that she's cried, She dreams of being with you, being
close by your side. When Heavenly sky's open, and the rains pouring free, An
Angel is near you, in your heart she longs to be.

The Wings of an Angel text="white">
Wings of Protection
by Marco Krooswijk
The touch of the angel
Innocent and caring
The wings spread out and cover my eyes
Protect me from any harm
That would come over me
But I take them away and sent them to you
For it is the only thing I can do
To show you I care
As comfort in these hard times
And me not being around
So angel watch over her
Don't let her get hurt
Do it as a personal favour...
