On a cold and frosty Montana morning
I sit in my sanctuary – surrounded by angels
And the stillness within and without
Takes me to my inner sanctuary
Come and join me this morning
In the beauty of a winter day
From the warmth of my Angel Room
My place of respite, where the Holy Spirit dwells
The sky is dark and we’re in a cloud
The angels within sing quietly; they’re never loud
Jesus prays with me from His place in my cloud
And reminds me that FAITH is not for the proud
With humble appreciation, I think of the faces
Who surround me with love in these heavenly spaces
I thank God for the trees all frosty with glitter
I dream of the people gone before me – they flitter
In and out of my prayers, like the three angels here
They remind me of prayer partners far away, yet so near.
I think of the gifts of poets and artists
The angels surround me – sending thoughts that are part of us
Some are melancholy, reminding me of my sins
Others are joyful, and my gratitude spins
I remember the angel who decorated this egg
And all the other creative friends – Watch over them, I beg
Help my friends who are ill and need special care
Shine Your light on them… let them know You are there
Bring them comfort and health and wisdom galore
Hold them close to Your Heart, Lord, give them so much more…
… than ever they dreamed of; like the birds of the air
Let them know you are with them; show them how much You care.
As the darkness subsides and the blue sky emerges,
Send them all Your GREAT LOVE that in my heart surges…
Great love for the angels that brighten my day.
And now, my dear friends, I send some your way!

I love the idea of an angel room!
My maiden name is DeAngeles (translates to “Of Angels” from the Italian). My mom collected angels. So, this is a place where I have put her collection and through the years added many of my own … most gifts from folks who come to visit. Just today, one of the elderly ladies I visited in our nursing home (Eileen who is 91) gave me another to put in my sanctuary. So special!!
Oh I love that!
