    Therese, I enjoyed the way you got the fam all gathered around to sing that heavenly rendition of “Angels We Have Heard On High {;-)
    I believe in angels of all shapes and sizes, including a certain black one-eyed cat who listened to God’s promptings and showed me the love of God when I was at a very low point.

    I guess I cheated, at a very young age. My bilogical father died when I was about four, and my mother re-married right aWay, since she had two kids and herself to support. I never liked the guy, and constant conflict between him and me. I still needed a father image, so I decided to choose one I liked. After a little thought (I guess because I was little, duh!)I went right to the Top, and I chose God to be my father. I loved that, I used to go around and tell everybody “My Father can kick your father’s ass!” Of course after a few years, I realized that my Father, was everybody’s Father!(dam!)My Father has never let me down, and never restricted me from doing anything…just patted me on the butt and said “Go out and play…and stay out of trouble” (yeah, right !)
    “I have nobody top blame for my Life, but myself!”

    Babs you speak of a Black cat, mine was white, his name was sonny boy, his mother was mother cat. Anyway I wrote a little story about him once , called The Sentinal. He was the most loyal and Miraculas creature I have ever known. I miss him very much. :(

  • Larry Parker

    Well, I’m a little skeptical of the shining white guys and gals with wings myself (despite what Joan Wester Anderson says), but I agree wholeheartedly with Therese that there are angelic PEOPLE who provide us support and, frankly, like Ann to Therese, sanity in our lives. I know I’ve met them. In a parallel universe, I could have married one of them :-(
    Of course, the paradox of depression is that we are often more able to support others than we are ourselves. Which begs the question — can we be angel-like to other people ourselves even when we are desperately down? Does Ann consider Therese HER guardian angel, equally supporting her when Ann is in a bad place and Therese can be there for Ann? Does Ann have another guardian angel?
    The word “angelic” has the connotation of being good (even goody-two-shoes) in one’s own behavior, particularly as a child — eating your broccoli, being nice to your siblings, that sort of thing. Perhaps we need to change the connotation to extending oneself to others in a very ADULT way, as Scriptures said the angels extended G-d’s message to chosen humans.
    (I’ll save the debate for why some are chosen and others are not for another time … that could take all day.)

  • Babs

    One thing I picked up along the way about angels and scripture is that they always seem to be insistent and in a hurry. It always seems to be something like, “Hurry up, rise and hit the road. Get a move on before it’s too late.”
    I like Joan’s books because they are not about her, but the stories many have sent her about their encounters with heavenly visitors. The correspondents come from a variety of backgrounds and the angels take many forms.

  • Lori

    angels come in the form of people I am sure. or maybe in all forms that life presents itself. My last suicide attempt was in the form of large quantities of antifreeze, pretty serious about this obviously. My angel was a kidney doctor in dialysis in ICU. He was from Poland. He asked me if I always traveled with 10,000 angels, at the time I didnt know he was one of them, I smile when I think of him. He told me something he had learned from a professor in Poland called Positive, Gawd, I forgot what he called it, something to do with positve destruction. Anyway, he told me, before I could open my eyes, that we all build a castle of our lifes, that is safe, with lots of rooms, and moats and ladders and the doors and windows are locked but to those we let in. But in time, leaks develop, things creep in, at first it doesnt seem so bad, but eventually we cant keep it all out and its overwhelming and our castle isnt safe and its not home. He said, just take and Bulldoze that whole F’ing thing over, and build a new one, thats safe, and its you, and its home. Thats all you got to do, its that simple. You are going to be okay.
    Then about 3 weeks later, he came to see me in treatment, he said he was going to Poland to visit family and he didnt like flying and he just wanted to borrow one of my angels. I’ll never forget that guy.
    and Im late for work, gotta go

    I am bipolar type 2 and understand you perfectly.
    I do not regard it as an illness.. more of a gift.
    I can experience intense emotion from both ends of the scale and emerge unscathed but wise from the intense depression which can be controlled by medication and should be to ensure my survival.
    At the opposite end of the scale is the power surge which if directed in the right channels can lead me to great achievements.
    Do not be ashamed of your condition; you are in good company.
    Winston Churchill was bipolar and lead his country to victory in some of the darkest days of English history.
    Patty Duke was an accomplished actress.
    As is Rod Steiger.
    One question I have… why are so many bipolars ( including yourself ) so extremely attractive?

  • Larry Parker

    Trevor:
    Well, people with bipolar disorder have a reputation for being inherently dynamic, which obviously is an attractive trait (at first, at least) to someone without mental illness.
    From my experience, I’d say you are very lucky to have what doctors call “soft bipolar” (I strongly suspect Bill Clinton has soft bipolar, for example — with his boundless energy and untrammeled sexuality). In my bipolar disorder type II, I get the worst of both ends — my highs never get very high, and my lows are Acapulco cliff dives.
    Although agreed that it doesn’t mean you can’t accomplish a lot. One of my favorite books about bipolar disorder (and the news, and a lot of other things) is Jane Pauley’s memoir “Skywriting.”

  • Laura Morra

    I have to say Beliefnet has helped me through some trying times in my life also.
    I have a brother who is bipolar and have spent countless hours on the phone with him listening and trying to be there for him. We live over 3K miles apart and thank goodness for the telephone to be able to reach out and touch someone. I have seen his High’s and Low’s and pray that he will be able to find some sort of peace of mind in time.
    I believe in Angels for there is so much more to life than we will ever know and need to be open to all its possibilities. There are too many people who have experienced be touched by God in someway. Those who don’t believe, I pray that they will see, in their own way of understanding.
    Life is precious and seems so short as time goes by. Take it a day at a time.

  • jamie parish

    thank you beliefnet,God is love!!! Angels do exist!!!Merry Christmas to all-

  • Nancy

    I to suffer with bi-polar I was blessed with this after my daughter was born back in January 1991. I had post partume which snowballed to bi-polar. Unfortunate for me I did not know I was suffering from depression until 1994. I was always so sad then happy like I was flying a kite. I always had a smile for my daughter so she never suspected what I was dealing with. I was blessed with a healthy happy child. To this day she is a well rounded person has a 3.7 average shes a junior in High School one more year then she will be off to college.
    My sister Lynn talked me into seeing a psychiatrist best thing I ever did. I remember I didn’t have a episode of depression for at least six months. Unfortuely, Lynn my sister, was hit by a car and died at the age of 37 before I ever told her that I was feeling good. Its been a long road and have tried many differant combination of meds. I been on my current medication a year now. Its like nite and day I can deal with daily life even when I am in a depression.

    I believe in Angels because my mother died of breast cancer, my grandfather the next month and then my grandmother. They are and have always watched over me and they are my Angels. I suffer from depression and some years are better than others.

  • mary

  • Diane

    Yes I believe in angels , but today I am in big doubt , I just wish my dream would come true and that God could trust in me . I really need someone to talk to even if I have my mother , daughter , husband , I need to be able to express myself without being told don’t do that or think like that or even not listening to me at all. I want my angel to listen to me. then tell me what to do . D.J.

  • Anonymous

    I, too, suffer from bipolar. I have strong faith, hope and belief in Jesus. His angel’s surround us in our time of need. JMHO
    I don’t ask “why” anymore. I’ve embraced my illness and have been proactive in MY recovery. I’ve been stable 2 yrs now.
    I thank God every day for every day +

I’am battleing depression and going through the ruling out this drug or that drug stage and any way thanks

  • Krissy

    To DJ above:
    I could have wrote what you said above. I have a dream to be in ministry but no one believes in me or wants me. I have a dream to write and speak–no one believes in me or wants to hire me in my congregation. It’s totally made me loose confidence in myself–I really feel like I lost myself. i cant even remember what I’m good at anymore. They tell me I’m a teacher, and I got roped into Substituting, which is ridiculous! I don’t like it, it drains me so much I go to bed at like 7 in the evening.
    Anyway–I was toying with the idea, after reading Matthew chapter 2 doing a christmas blog (romans10_9 on myspace) that angels take the form of thought–and that’s how they could appear to Joseph in his dreams, and that’s how they help people today. Especially when you have those ‘narrow misses’ where you were suddenly scared to go to work that day, or go into that room, or turned suddenly and missed getting hit, or looked up suddenly and had a narrow miss.
    so I was looking online to see if anyone, as a follower of Christ, had come up with the idea. so far I can’t find anyone who has! Then I found this website, and this forum and basically that’s it. Hope it helped!

  • Anonymous

    To D.J and the other one that wrote to D.J are you sure it is angles talking to you ? it mite be God ? you don’t have to be in a church to preach to people. every time you tell some one about Jesus you are preaching to them. every one that is called to preach or in the ministry.it doesn’t mean you have to have a church. you are the church.is there people around you. will what are you waiteing for.and maybe God wants you to write a book or someing. Jest ask him pray about it. read your bible. God loves you. Esther

    Today, I found out that my niece is not going to get probation and she has to serve almost three years in a woman’s prison. She is bipolar and comes from several broken homes in which is her Mother’s fault because of her alcoholism. My niece has suffered tremendous losses.
    I suffered much trauma today as well as her. We had all these plans made for Christmas together/and for a new beginning for her.
    She won’t receive any counseling or treatment for her problem in prison because she would be on a waiting list for three years to even get into counseling, by then she will be out but with no help for her drug problem which landed her in prison. She has served 15 months in jail awaiting what her attorney thought would be probation.
    I have long given up on faith and now I DON’T BELIEVE IN ANGELS!

  • Nancy

    Therese
    I am having a problem getting your videos through beyond blue connection. I am wondering the title you have listed The Season of Angels is the same I found on you tube titled Guardian Angels…is it the same one?
    I would appreciate any help on this.

    Therese,
    Have you noticed that each time you mention your “guardian angel” you smile?
    Just wanted to point that out.

    PLEASE DON’T LOSE FAITH. I DID FOR A FEW YEARS. MY DAUGHTER GOT KILLED 15 YEARS AGO. I TURNED AWAYA FROM GOD. I WOULD ALWAYS ASK WHY. SHE WAS A GOOD DAUGHTER. I MISS HER SO MUCH SHE DIED INSTANTLY. I COULD’T BELIEVE GOD COULD DO THIS TO ME. AFTER A FEW YEARS OR SO I STARTED THINKING THAT I WASN’T THE FIRST PARENT THAT HAD LOST A CHILD. SO I STARTED PRAYING TO GOD. I REALIZED THAT I HAD TO KEEP ON GOING FOR MY SON THAT IS DISABLE. HE IS STILL HERE WITH ME AND NEEDS ME AS MUCH AS I NEED HIM. SO DON’T LOSE YOUR FAITH PRAY FOR YOUR NIECE AND YOUR SELF. CAUSE FAITH IS ALL WE HAVE.

  • victoria

    I am not sure excatly what I want to say………..but let me start with this, I had to give up my house and items and move away from people and things that I loved and I had no choice, due to the fact I had lost my job ( after 17 yrs) ….I prayed and prayed,but I had to move………Now 3 yrs later, I realized that my prayers were answered and that an angel was sent to me ( again) to help me walk with hope and gratitued…..I rec’d excatly what I asked for—–no really excatly and on that note, I remind you,to pray with wisdom as the good Lord, gave me my answer, which now I realized that I was just asking and praying, without thinking…..\\\\\\\\\\\
    To-day, I try to remember to look up to the heavens and give thanks for what I have and to have hope that things will change…….
    I do wish I knew my angels that have come and gone from my life…
    Every once and awhile I feel a little breeze and wonder if they are still walking beside me and again I say a prayer of thanks and the hope begins again ( but in a different way ) ……it is hard struggle and we must keep on, if not for ourselves, but for people that need inspiration……and with that I say a prayer for all that
    reads this and |I wish for you love and laughter and faith …

    Dear Sister
    I am sorry to brake certain understanding of yours.
    1. Angels are not women they are not having sex at all. Ref. Gos. John
    “You will be like angels not marrying or not given for marriange”. Angels do not need sex because they are not having any families.
    2. You have seen your father turning to an angel. Again wrong why did you make your father a servent of ours? Book of Revelation says that the angeles are our servants.
    Human is being created to be the sons of God. And this status comes back to us by the indwelling of Holy Spirit (Christ Jesus) in our lives.
    So it is better to be the Son of God rather than a servant in eternal life.
    Pls choose wisely by reading the Bible and be blessed. Do not worry about those people who left the world. But about those who are in this world today.
    God bless you

    I believe in angels also, my Dad passed last April from a long and painful battle with cancer. He was in my dream just one time and I pray everyday for him to come back to me in my dreams and I know he will If anything I say a prayer every night and I feel that it is being heard. I have had that breeze also. It’s a feeling that is hard to explain it’s not like a real breeze is it.

  • Darrell

    I am a pastor and I to believe in Angels. I understand the persons reference to us being more than angels and we are. We are greater in power and might than the angels after we leave this world. Angels are created beings so I have no problem with God creating some of them looking like women and some looking like men. The Bible speaks of different types of angels. We often refer to those we love as angels after they leave this world. While that is not biblically correct it is more of an expresion showing our love for those we shall see again. God used two men who were in Heaven with Him to come back to the earth and talk with Jesus before the most sever trial He was about to face. The diciples saw those who talked with Jesus and wanted to set up places to worship them. Those who know Jesus are transformred when they get to lay aside this body and put on the one created for us to use in eternity. Those who know Jesus are alive and well. We use that to comfort out hearts knowing we shall see them again and know them just as they shall know us.

    Hello,
    I too believe with all my heart in angels….Your guardian angel, Ann, looks a whole lot like my mother who passed away in Sept. of 2001…Her name was Patricia Ann…I was named after her & my paternal grandmother. My mom was/is my best friend! My children called her Mimi..they will also say that she was/is their best friend. She also suffered from depression, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, she also struggled with being over weight through out her life. I have Multiple Sclerosis, I was diagnosed with it in the fall of 1982…God has not given me any pain with it…He has also blessed me with a wonderful cheery disposition…and a wonderful family and lots of great friends!
    I am 51 years old/young my email address is gangan.3@hotmail.com I live with my husband Phillip in Homewood, Alabama…we have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren!
    we do not belong to any particular congregation..I was raised in the Church of Christ and Phillip’s parents were/are Jehovah’s Wittiness’s…what a crazy combo….we have been married 33 years and counting…

    Yes I do believe in angels. that is the real ones that are thereto tell you that everything is going to be all right.the first one that I saw was when I was quite young. there was a short in electricity on a brooder house to keep young chicks warm I touched the tin roof and the electricity grabed me and then threw me onto my back.When I awoke there was a real angel.She wore a pure white dressthat came down to her ancles and her hair was pure blond. She told me that everything was going to be all right. then she was no longer there.

  • Shirley Brewer

    I believe with all my heart that there are angels, I was sick and down with cancer and I prayed that God would send me my mom that is now an Angel, she had been gone for over 3 years when they told me that I had breast cancer, I was under going chemo and when ever I asked God to let me just see her she was there to smile upon me and let me know that I was going to be ok, that was 13 years ago and I’m cancer free today! So I think that all we have to do in to belive and the Angels are sent to us!!!

  • l.wing

    ANGLES ARE ALL AROUND US. IF YOU HAVE EYES TO SEE & EARS TO HEAR THEY ARE GODS MESSANGERS. IF YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING AND PRAY TO GOD HE WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS. MY SON WAS BORN PREMAUTURE WEIGHING LESS THEN 1 POUND IN 1977. I PRAYED EVERY HOUR OF EVERY DAY HAVING FAITH THAT GOD WOULD MAKE HIM ALRIGHT. AND TODAY HE IS A WONDERFUL HEALTH HAPPY YOUNG MAN. THEY SAY YOU WALK BY FAITH NOT BY SIGHT. WELL MY SON HAS BEEN BLIND SINCE BIRTH. GOD HAS BLESSED HIM WITH MUSICAL TALENT AND A SONG IN HIS HEART. IT SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY WHEN I PUT ALL MY FAITH & PRAYERS IN
    GODS HANDS. AND HE CARRIED US WITH THE WINGS OF AN ANGEL…
    THANK YOU JESUS
    AMEN

    I believe in Angels. For example just last week my depression had me to a point I felt stuck in the mud. I went to call a friend and could not find his number. I am terrible with names so I was looking for the wrong name. Just at that moment my phone rang. It was a friend who also suffers from depression and was checking in with me as we often do with each other. She reminded me of the things I had previously said to her that helped her. I was so greatful for her telling me to slow down, take a breath, not to overwhelm my self with the big picture but to take things in small steps. I got the phone # for my other friend from her and called him too. He reminded me also to just do a few little things. I got off the phone and took a shower and ate. I started to feel a little better.
    Then I got on line and there in my email was a link to this site. I had evidently been to the site before but forgot I had requested the email postings. This totally lifted me and I got out of the house and shared the miracle of the morning and my angels who had helped me.
    Angel = messenger of hope and love. To me we all can be angels if we aspire to do the will of God as much as we can possibly do.
    I do love this site

    Oh, Therese, you ARE my angel! Whenever I hear you or read you, I am lifted UP, and you bring me such joy! Have a HAPPY, HEALTHY, and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!! It can’t be much worse than 2008!!

  • Your Name

    I believe in angels. Four years ago in January I almost dies the doctors thought for sure that I was going to die. And deep inside I wanted to die. Things were really bad at home and I couldn’t take it any more. I just wanted to die. So I went in frieday before supper bowl I had an infection on both sides of my stomache I had to have tubes in both sides of my stomache. and I had to have surgery but they didnt find any thing until monday after super bowl. Well after surgery I was still out and I heard a voice say Kris you have a choice you can live or you can die and this voice sounded just like my aunt that died awhile back. I started seeing my kids and I said I want to live and then I woke up.

  • Mary Anne Thompson

    Therese,
    I never realized until listening to this video that you met your Guardian Angel Ann on April 15th. That is MY bday! The day I was born my grandmother called me her little angel because the same day I was born my Uncle committed suicide. She lost a son and gained a grand daughter the same day. I have always believed like you in Earth Angels, people who are put in our path just when we need them. You are one of those to me. I have been on Beyond Blue for 3 yrs now. I have turned to your blogs, writings on days when I had no where else to go and was sufferring severe depression. I am happy to report that at the present time I am doing ok. I am on Cymbalta for Depression and take Klonopin now for severe anxiety. This yr is much better than last yr for me. As you know Holidays are always a hard time for us depressives. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for all u continue to do and wish you a joyous Holiday! I love u gal, Mary Anne

    Therese,
    I also believe in angels in a different form or two.
    When I was 18 I travelled by myself complete with motorised wheelchair — and the impairments and condition that went with it from a country town in Australia to CT in the states, to meet a friend I had talked to for 2 years or more online. She was an angel in her own right, a former catholic nun, now married with an adopted special needs son. But she talked to the young Christian that I was of “Jesus …. with skin on”, people that come into your life and do the practical everyday acts of loving and kindness that sprinkled through His earthly ministry; like the listening that Anne did for you.
    Really appreciate your site, thanks

When Faith Turns Neurotic
When does reciting scripture become a symptom of neurosis? Or praying the rosary an unhealthy compulsion? Not until I had the Book of Psalms practically memorized as a young girl did I learn that words and acts of faith can morph into desperate measures to control a mood disorder, that faithfulness

How to Handle Negative People
One of my mom’s best pieces of advice: “Hang with the winners.” This holds true in support groups (stick with the people who have the most sobriety), in college (find the peeps with good study habits), and in your workplace (stay away from the drama queen at the water cooler). Why? Because we

Can I Say I’m a Son or Daughter of Christ and Suffer From Depression?
In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, we read: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” What if we aren’t glad, we aren’t capable of rejoicing, and even prayer is difficult? What if, instead, everything looks dark,
