From Indy

The barn’s big gray cat told me a fascinating story today. He said he heard it from a little bird, who assured him that the story is absolutely true.

It seems one day the bird was sitting in a tree when two tiny angels landed on a nearby branch to watch what was going on with a couple of people arguing under the tree. The angels were very young and had never been to earth before. The bird overheard them talking about what they were seeing. Apparently they were confused by the loud argument the people were having down below.

One of the angels said to the other, “I wonder what it would be like to be a human being. We only know light and love and peace, and these humans seem to have a whole range of experiences that we don’t get to have. They fight and cry and feel pain. I wonder what that’s like…”

The other angel pondered for a moment and then said, “I have an idea… let’s ask the boss if we can be born into the human world and experience all these different things. That way we’ll know what it’s like to feel the dark side of human existence.”

“I think that’s a great idea,” said the first angel with a bright smile. “But how do we make sure we experience the dark side? I really want to see what it’s like!”

The second angel thought about it for a minute, and then said, “Tell you what…. I’ll ask to be born as the bad guy and I’ll do my best to challenge you and give you a really great negative experience. That way you’ll know what it’s like. Next time, you can be the bad guy and give me a negative time.”

The first angel looked at her friend lovingly and said, “You’d do that for me? Wow! You’re the best friend in the whole Universe! Thank you!”

The second angel smiled and gave the first angel a warm hug. Then she looked her friend in the eye and said, “Just one thing… You have to promise you that you’ll remember who I REALLY am!”

Do you have angels in your life right now? Do you remember who they REALLY are?

Let’s go find that tree! I want to see if the angels are still there! Don’t you?

Love, Indy
