Angel In The Eye Of The Beholder

Reality belongs individually to each of us... my world is not ever 'your' world, which, I suppose, Is why writers write.....

  One evening, while watching dogs cavort about in our garden, I heard something that was not familiar, not a neighborhood sound.

Where was its source? It was not the neighbors; it was a sweet sound and came from above me.

I looked up to the sky once more. What was it? Peering upward, I could see nothing. I checked and yes, my glasses were still perched firmly on my nose. It was a city-lit night sky, dark with ambient light; nothing out of the ordinary.

There! Right in the middle of the sky, almost close enough to touch-- where nothing had been prior, I saw a moving, swirling shape. Occasionally it would swirl and blink an incredible brilliance into my eye, sharp and clear. Breathless with joy in its beauty, I watched it do a slow dance, still winking its brilliance.

The shape changed; clearly I could see a beautiful Angel, dancing in the night sky over Bakersfield, California.

Yes, it might have been the moon covered by cloud wisps, but it had sure looked like a dancing Angel to me.

Angels all around us. They take care of us and come to us in amazing ways and when needed. Maybe you had a need to see one that night. God Bless you Always.

Calvin Miller in his Singer Trilogy said, "if you look past heaven's gates with eyes unwashed by dreams, you will see nothing." An old episode of Star Trek once once delivered the line, "Dreams, the highest reality!" It is good, I think, that you can see what most cannot. Someone has to do it.
