Do you recall back in the day when everyone started talking about angels? Well, maybe they didn’t start, but they became really popular. The show Touched by an Angel became huge. And Michael Landon played an angel in Highway to Heaven. (Am I dating myself?) Angel paraphernalia was everywhere. I’m sure Hallmark made loads of money.
Angels had been in our awareness, but something happened during that time period to make them more present. And then things died down again about them. Of course the concept of angels will never go away, only because the concept of them are so awesome.
I’ve been reading about angels in novels. Not messenger angels either, but kick ass ones. It got me thinking about what kind of angel I’d be if I were ever called to be one (a lot of laughter coming from this very faulty human). I’ve decided on an archangel – yes, can’t you see it? Archangel Nana. None of this “Hail, I come with glad tidings” for me. I’m the kind who wields a sword and knows how to use it.
Angelic love – good times.
If you’re interested in books with angels in them that I loved, here are some of my recommendations.
