Autumn and an Angel

This evening’s walk was a rich display of Autumn’s warm colors.

Sheep were grazing in the field, and looked up to see what I might offer.

I have nothing to give the sheep,
but I do have a new Angel Journal that I have sewn with golden thread, and that I offer you this season.

Included with the journal is a bookmark with the following poem:

   If I were an angel,
I’d softly speak to
your heart’s ear,
and hold you with
my warm and
hope-filled wings.
Though this life is
rare and precious,
do not live in fear~
count instead the
blessings which
every season brings.
A kingdom much like
heaven is spread across
the earth, and with
growing awareness
awakes the human race.
And Love does flow
right to you, within, among,
and through you,
lighting all you do and are
with its eternal Grace.

The illustration on the journal is a painting called Tatiana’s Awakening, by Charles Sims,1896.  There are approx. 60 golden parchment pages inside, and she is nestled in a gift box.
