Victorian Angels Inspiration

One day a young woman was standing in the middle of the town proclaiming that she had the most beautiful heart in the whole valley.

A large crowd gathered and they all admired her heart for it was perfect. There was not a mark or a flaw in it. Yes, they all agreed it truly was the most beautiful heart they had ever seen. The young woman was very proud and boasted more loudly about her beautiful heart.

Suddenly, an old woman appeared at the front of the crowd and said, "Why, your heart is not nearly as beautiful as mine." The crowd and the young woman looked at the old woman's heart. It was beating strongly, but full of scars, it had places where pieces had been removed and other pieces put in, but they didn't fit quite right and there were several jagged edges.

In fact, in some places there were deep gouges where whole pieces were missing. The people stared - how can she say her heart is more beautiful, they thought? The young woman looked at the old woman's heart and saw its state and laughed. "You must be joking," she said. "Compare your heart with mine, mine is perfect and yours is a mess of scars and tears."

"Yes," said the old woman, "Yours is perfect looking but I could never trade with you. You see, every scar represents a person to whom I have given my love - I tear out a piece of my heart and give it to them, and often they give me a piece of their heart which fits into the empty place in my heart, but because the pieces aren't exact, I have some rough edges, which I cherish, because they remind me of the love we shared. Sometimes I have given pieces of my heart away, and the other person hasn't returned a piece of their heart to me. These are the empty gouges - giving love is taking a chance. Although these gouges are painful, they stay open, reminding me of the love I have for these people too, and I hope someday they may return and fill the space I have waiting. So now do you see what true beauty is?"

The young woman stood silently with tears running down hers cheeks. She walked up to the old woman, reached into her perfect young and beautiful heart, and ripped a piece out. She offered it to the old woman with trembling hands. The old woman took her offering, placed it in her heart and then took a piece from her old, scarred heart and placed it in the wound in the young woman's heart. It fit, but not perfectly, as there were some jagged edges. The young woman looked at her heart, not perfect anymore but more beautiful than ever, since love from the old woman's heart flowed into hers. They embraced and walked away side by side.

Love cannot be wasted. It makes no difference where it is bestowed, it always brings in big returns!

Victorian Angels Cliparts IV

God Is Great

I asked God to take away my pain.

God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No.
Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.
I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said...
Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

Picture Of Guardian Angel

Angels In The Alley
Diane, a young university student, was home for the summer. She had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away. As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked "God" to keep her safe from harm and danger.

When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house,she decided to take it, however, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for "God's" protection.

Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped around her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley, just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station.

She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.

When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her."

Moral of the story...
Don't underestimate the power of Prayer

Should you die today, where will you go?

I put on new clothes, New sneaks on my feet.
I was there for class on time,
Went to the back and took my seat.

Yeah, I'm moving up,
I'm already grown.
Soon I'll be graduating,
And out on my own.

I talked to some of my friends,
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn't have said,
Did stuff I shouldn't have done.

I knew I was different.
I felt God touch my heart,
I knew I should set a standard,
But then I'd be set apart.

Walking to the bus,
I was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tyres screeching,
But now it's too late.

I'm standing in this room,
And I can see the heavenly gate.
Oh no! I never prayed.
I thought I had time to get it straight.

An angel walked to me,
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life,
When would this dream end?

I told him my name,
And he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said,
" Your name is not in this book. "

" Angel, this is a dream,
No, I can't be dead! "
He closed the book and turned away,
He whispered - "You cannot proceed ahead."

" this can't be real,
Angel, you can't turn me away.
Let me talk to God,
Maybe he'll let me stay. "

He led me to the gate,
Jesus came to me.
He did not let me in but said,
" Beloved what is your need? "

" Jesus, I cried, please,
Don't cast me away from You. "
Tears ran down His face as He said,
" You knew what you needed to do. "

" Lord, please I'm young,
I never thought I would die.
I thought I'd have plenty of time,
Death caught me by surprise. "

" Lord, I went to church,
Please Jesus, I believe. "
Jesus said "You would not accept me,
My love you would not receive. "

" Lord, there were too many hypocrites,
They weren't being true. "
Jesus took a step back and asked,
" What does that have to do with you? "

" Lord, my family claimed to be saved,
They weren't real. You know. "
Jesus said, "I died for you,
Now I have to go. "

I fell to my knees crying to Him,
" Lord, I planned to be real tomorrow. "
I couldn't, make Him understand,
I had never-felt such sorrow.
Then it hit me hard, I said,
" Lord, where will I go? "

He looked into my eyes and said,
" My child you already know. "
"Please Jesus, I begged,
The place is so hot. "
It seemed to trouble and grieve Him,

" Lord, you're supposed to be love,
How can you send me to damnation? "
He replied, "With your mouth you said you loved me,
But each day you rejected my salvation."

With that in an instant,
Day turned into night.

I never knew such torture could be,
Now too late, I know the Bible is right.
If I can tell you anything,
Hell has no age.
It is a place of torture,
Separated from God and full of rage.

You know, I thought it was funny-a joke,
But this one thing is true.
If you never accept Jesus Christ,

Moon Clipart

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape...
but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape...

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything...
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear...

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her...
but a woman of strength gives the best of her to everyone...

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future...
but a woman of strength realises life's mistakes can also be God's blessings and capitalises on them...

A strong woman walks sure footedly...
but a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls...

A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face...
but a woman of strength wears grace...

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey...
but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong...

Flower Globe Clipart

The Most Beautiful Flower
The park bench was deserted
as I sat down to read

Beneath the long, straggly branches
of an old willow tree

Disillusioned by life
with good reason to frown

For the word was intent
on dragging me down

And if that weren't enough
to ruin my day,

A young boy out of breath approached me,
all tired of play.

He stood right before me
with his head tilted town
And said with great excitement,
"Look what I found!"

In his hand was a flower
and what a pitiful sight,

With its petals al worn -
not enough rain, or too little light.

Wanting him to take his dead flower
and go off to play,
I faked a small smile
and then shifted away.

But instead of retreating
he sat next to my side

And placed the flower to his nose

And declared with overacted surprise,

"It sure smells pretty and it's beautiful, too.

That's why I picked it;
here, it's for you"

The weed before me was dying or dead.

Not vibrant of colores:
orange, yellow or red.

But I knew I must take it,
or he might never leave.

So I reached for the flower,
and replied, "Just what I need."

But instead of him placing
the flower in my hand,

He held it mid-air
without reason or plan.

It was then that I noticed
for the very first time

That weed-toting boy could not see:
he was blind.

I heard my voice quiver;
tears shone in thesun

As I thanked him for picking
the very best one.

"You're welcome", he smiled,
and then ran off to play,

Unaware of the impact
he'd had on my day.

I sat there and wondered
how he managed to see

A self-pitying woman
beneath an old willow tree.

How did he know of my selfindulged plight?

Perhaps from his heart,
he'd been blessed with true sight.

Through the eyes of a blind child,
at last I could see

The problem was not with the world;
the problem was me.

And for all of those times
I myself have been blind,

I vowed to see the beauty in lifem

And appreciate every second that's mine.

And then I held
that whilted flower up to my nose

And breathed in the fragrance
of a beautiful rose

And smiled as I watched that young boy,

Another weed in his hand,

About to change the life
of an unsuspecting old man

Christmas Images

Christmas Around The World

Many cultures have traditional foods baked around chrismas, like the French "Buche de Noel" or gingerbread men and women which are decorated and hung on the chrismas tree. Many families also prepare egg nog or pfeiffermäuse (spiced cookies rolled in powdered sugar. All those pastries are probably a sign of feasting that the fasting is now over (much like the festival after Ramadan is over, and have little to do with Chrismas in the first place)

At Christmas, every country does different things.

In Mexico, children play a game called "Pinata" on Christmas day. They are blindfolded and try to hit and break a hanging jar with a stick. The winner gets a special prize, and the sweets are shared out. The jars are decorated with tinsel and filled with sweets.

In New Zealand, sometimes they use a blossoming tree called "Pohutukawa" instead of the traditional Christmas fir tree.

In Australia, they bring their Christmas dinner to a sandy beach instead of having it at home. They eat roast turkey, Christmas pudding and mince pies. They also have a lovely flower called the Christmas bell. It is a bell-shaped yellow bloom surrounded by bright green leaves.

Christmas Cliparts II

Information About Christmas

Christmas was called "Criste's Maesse" or "Christ's Mass".

No one knows when Jesus was born.

Jesus' birthday was not celebrated during his lifetime. However, when the Romans b
ecame Christians about 300 years later, they decided to abolish an old Pre-Christian festival called "SATURNALIA" and replace it with one celebrating the birth of Jesus. This took place on 25th December.

In 336 A.D, the first Christmas was celebrated in Rome.

In 1300, the Christians started putting words in everyday language to the carol t
unes that describe the Christmas story.

The name "Santa Claus" came from an Old Dutch word for "St. Nicholas". He lived in Turkey about 1500 years ago. He was one of the first bishops of the Christian Church. The Romans imprisoned him for a while because of his faith. Children loved him and he is the best remembered for his kindness towards children. One story says that he gave some gold to a poor father to save his three daughters from poverty and shame.

Christmas Cliparts I

The Birth Of Jesus
Once there was a man named Joseph and his wife named Mary.

It is said that one night an angel came to them and told them they would have a special boy.

The boy would save his people. At that time ,everyone had to go back to their own hometown to be counted.

Mary and Joseph had to travel before the baby was born. It was a long journey. They didn't arrive until very late one night. They looked for a place to stay, but they didn't find. At last, the owner of a house said they could stay in the barn.

That night Mary gave birth to this special boy.
Soon after the baby was born, angels appeared to some shepherds in a field near the town.

Angels told them a special boy was born, he would save them. The boy was named Jesus by his father, but people called him Jesus Christ because Christ means to save.

Years later, people still celebrate Jesus' birthday. They call it Christmas, which comes from the name Christ.

Angel born in heaven

Angel Hands
Hands that hold a little one,

Safe and snug upon their lap.

Rocking when the day is done,

Or just in time to take a nap.

Little treasures told in stories,

Teaching right from wrong.

Or the sound of sweet melodies

You hear within a song.

The gentleness in someone’s touch,

Or soft sound of a whisper.

Have come to mean so much,

Leaving precious memories forever.

An angel‘s hands gently held me,

Caressing me with their love.

Leaving behind a precious memory,

Of an Angel’s sweet love!

Angel Hearts Cliparts

Angel Time
Angel, I can see myself
Angel, won’t you feel for me,
From your heart?
Do return my heart to me
I’m already hurt

It was an accident unfortunate
Angel, threw me like a man timed
Why amuse yourself in such way
No don’t insist,

Lay me down on the ground softly softly
Don’t remove my head hurts much too much

You never return it
Well I wouldn’t miss it
I shed no tears, broken me
It's my peace of mind
You'll never know,
Now inside and outside are matching one,

Why amuse yourself
Will it break your wings
Will you shed no tear for broken me
My Angel Time,
My Angel.

Angel & man

You have an angel now, to hold you when you are lonely,
to wipe the tears when you cry, your beautiful Mom, your loving
angel, now lives with God beyond the blue sky.

for it takes someone special to care for hurting little boys and girls.
Your Mom will be an angel to many little hearts, she will bring smiles
to many just as she did to you, right from the very start.

I know you miss her sweet voice, her hugs, and her beautiful face,

angel, your loving Mother be your guide.

Angels Glitter Cliparts

My angel
My sweet beautiful angel.
Sent to me from above.
I am so grateful to have found you,
and I give you all my love.
You must have come from heaven,
because you have pretty little angel eyes.
When you gaze at me with them,
my heart begins to fly.
Your sweet angelic voice,
continuously rings in my ears.
With you by my side,
there is nothing I fear.
Whenever we are together,
You shine with a heavenly glow.
Your beautiful angel face,
raises me up from feeling low.
Yes, heaven is missing an angel,
because you are here with me.
You're my sweet, beautiful angel,
and I'll love you for eternity!

Grandmother's Angels
She entertained angels unaware,
patting her biscuits,
popping them into the oven
as angel eyes watched carefully
as angel stomachs growled
and angel mouths watered.
She entertained angels all her life
and never noticed as she lay dying
angel eyes watching carefully,
angel mouths singing songs of comfort
as they waited to escort her
through the wonderful gates of Heaven.

The Eagle With His Fulfilled Desires
The eagle flew high up in the sky,
On a pleasant morning having a sigh.
On his journey he met with a stranger,
Later he knew that it was an angel!
He begged the angel to grant a wish-
So the angel gave him a fatty fish.
The eagle was sad, but he accepted it from all his heart.
The pleased angel took the eagle near to him,
Then the eagle was gifted with a house-
Which was full of his favourites-rats and mouse.
The eagle's hapiness! knew no bounds,
He flew around and around the angel,
And one step of the eagle on the ground,
The eagle disappeared from surround! ! !
