I awoke with the words ‘blessed be’ whispering in my mind. I love that phrase, so I offer it to you: Blessed Be. I once was standing in a rock circle in England, and the woman standing next to me softly whispered blessed be to people as they walked past. Her simple blessing touched my heart at a profound level.
Today is your chance to be someone’s angel by committing an act of random kindness!
According to the website Holiday Insights it is always celebrated on August 22nd.
So once again, on this Be an Angel Day, blessed be.
“Be an Angel Day encourages us to do acts of kindness, and to help others.
“This special day has strong religious roots. Jayne Howard Feldman, the creator of this day, says she was inspired by angels to create this day on August 22.
“The objective of this day is to be like an angel, and do something good or kind for someone. It encourages us to be God’s servant in doing good things for others. It is intended to do something nice or kind for someone who is in need of help. The type of angelic help you can offer is not defined or limited. It can be physical, emotional, or spiritual.
“Be an Angel Day is for both the giver and the receiver. If you are the receiver, make certain to express openly your appreciation. And, recognize the angel in your life as being sent from God.”

With angels, I often find it is much easier to see their shadow or effect in our lives rather than see them directly. So it can be with your act of kindness. It can be like the wind gently rustling the leaves or moving the grass.
You can make the world a little better place by being an angel for someone today. And feel free to post about an act of kindness. Please share the love with us all.
