This is giveaway #1 of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month. Many of us moms refer to our babies as angels. The word angel is an endearing term for our little ones. Just take a look at the things that the word angel can mean for our babies:
A messenger of God
A person who performs a mission of God or acts as if sent by God.
A person having qualities generally attributed to an angel, such as beauty or purity.
A person whose actions and thoughts are virtuous.
An attendant or guardian spirit.
A deceased person whose soul is regarded as having been accepted into Heaven.
Just as God can use our angels to help people, He sends real angels for His purpose. I can think of at least one moment in my life where I'm pretty sure that God sent His angels to protect me. I was in a motorcycle accident on April 15, 2003. There is no explanation of how I came out of that accident how I did other than God protecting me. It really should've been much worse than what it was. I am thankful that my injuries weren't more severe.
What I would like to give away is a 3 volume set of books called In The Company of Angels by Robert Strand. These books contain true stories of encounters with angels. I have had the pleasure of reading these books and wanted to pass on a set to someone else.
To be entered into the giveaway, please leave a comment telling me if you've ever had an encounter with an angel.
This giveaway will remain open until Wednesday, October 7th.
