Stories of Angel
Seeing Images of Angels in the Clouds
God speaks to us in many ways and sends His messengers in many forms. For some it may be in the form of Angels. For others... Birds, and yet for others it may be something else, but always something significant or special to that individual, so they may understand and gain knowledge of His Love.
I, too, have been seeing Angels in the clouds lately. I started seeing them about six months ago. The most poignant came on July 11 of this year in South Dakota.
My mom was in the hospital dying. When my husband, aunt and I were leaving the hospital that evening there was a PERFECT Angel wing in the clouds.
I cannot begin to describe the perfectness of this cloud. The sunset was the most beautiful colors of pink, violet and coral.
It was a very cloudy night and the Angel wing was perfectly pronounced. I didn't say anything to my husband or aunt, but, when we returned to my mom's house where my sisters also live, they asked if we noticed the beautiful sunset.
I said yes and before I could ask if they too saw the Angel-wing-cloud, they both asked me if I saw it. I knew then that the wing belonged to the Angel who would escort my mom to our Heavenly Father. I was right. Mom died the next afternoon.
Mom was comatose her last three days. As I was leaving her
room, she became aware and answered when I talked to her.
I told her we had to go let the dogs out, that I loved her and I would be back soon.
She smiled and said she knew the dogs had to go out, that she loved me and would see me when I came back. Half an hour after we got home, we got the call that she had passed on.
I know the Angel wing cloud was a message to us that the Angels were on their way to take Mom HOME.
I thank God for Mom's last moments of lucidity so that I could
tell her once again that I loved her. Thanks for your wonderful newsletter. It
is very uplifting. God bless you!!!! Marilyn from the state of Washington, USA

God's Word Is A Seed
Most people expect God's Word to work like a stick of dynamite -- but God's Word is like a seed. We know because of what Jesus said.
LUKE 8:11 NKJ
11 "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
The Holy Spirit, through Peter, also said God's Word is a seed.
1 PETER 1:23 NKJ
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
God's Word is alive. Just like a seed -- the Bible is full of unseen life.
JOHN 6:63 NKJ
63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
Jesus said His words are alive. They contain life. The words in your Bible may look lifeless and powerless. Seeds do, too. But they are not without life or power.
In Mark 4:30-31, Jesus explained that the kingdom of God works like a seed. So, if we are to understand God's kingdom and how He operates, we need to understand seeds.
* A seed is alive: it contains life.
Your physical senses are incapable of judging whether a seed is alive or not. You cannot see, feel, hear, smell, or taste the life in a seed. There is only one way to prove a seed is alive -- plant it.
* A seed does nothing until planted.
Seeds do not grow sitting in a sack on your shelf. They must be planted in the proper place.
If you desire the Word of God to produce in your life, you must decide to plant the Word in your heart and mind.
The best way to plant the seed of God's Word in your life is by speaking the Word. Hearing others speak the Word is good -- but will not produce as bountiful a harvest as speaking the Word yourself.
Speaking God's Word with your mouth is essential. As we speak God's Word we are planting the seed in our heart for the harvest of results we desire.
ROMANS 10:10 NKJ
10 For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
Whatever you need to be saved or delivered from, confession (what you say) is essential.
* A seed is much smaller than the plant it produces.
The problem you face may seem huge. In comparison, a scripture may seem very small. But when planted, that Word will grow in you and overcome the problem.
* A seed always produces after its kind.
GALATIANS 6:7 NKJ
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
Whatever you need, or desire, find scriptures relating to that. Then plant those scriptures inside you in abundance. Those seeds will grow up and produce a harvest of what you need or desire.
* A seed is powerful.
As a seed begins to grow, it will push up dirt, rocks, etc. Whatever the obstacles are, God's Word planted in your heart will push them out of the way.
* A seed begins its growth in secret (underground).
The only way to tell if a seed is growing is to dig it up, or wait for a plant to appear. If you dig up a seed, you may kill it.
* A seed takes time to produce.
No one expects a seed to produce a harvest the same day that seed is planted.
Sometimes the Word of God seems to spring up and bear fruit immediately. Yet, if we knew the details, we would understand that the fruit of the Word grew in that person's life over time.
* A seed is persistent.
A seed never gives up, but works day and night. Even when you are sleeping, the seed you have planted is working to grow and express itself in a fruitful harvest.
* A seed is not affected by other seeds.
Whatever happens to other seeds does not make any difference to a specific seed. Each seed sticks to its own task. One wheat seed planted in a corn field will still produce wheat. Seed does not become discouraged, or quit, even if other seeds die.
* A seed will stop growing without nourishment.
Planting a seed is not enough to assure a harvest. Seed must be protected and taken care of until harvest time. A seed which is dug up, or not watered, will not produce.
* More seeds planted produce a larger harvest.
2 CORINTHIANS 9:6 NKJ
6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
Think on these truths about seeds. Allow the Holy Spirit to help you apply them to the role of God's Word in your life.

Angels & Miracles
The word "angel" comes from a Greek word meaning messenger. An angel is usually said to be a supernatural being who has a specific function to fulfill in the cosmic order. Sometimes this function involves contact with humans. Throughout history, people have had experiences of angels who, they have felt, have given instruction, reassurance, or healing.
