ballet of angels...



i am here giving thanks and praises to the Most High JAH for life and friends like you, and the words ballet of angels came to mind.  it could be because i recently had the unique experience of enjoying the ballet in a church, or because i've been slowly sipping on a glass of this savory wine, or it could be because that is what life feels like being shared with all of you...a ballet of angels.  i guess i really have to share a little story with you so you can understand what i am talking about.

when we started our new collective random act of kindness - Selah's Angels - i only hoped that we would offer a soft touch of loving kindness to someone whose life has been touched by cancer...and then someone shared this "testimony" with me that left me completely speechless:

Her friend (let's call her Etana) is one of the recipients on our greeting cards mailing list.  These two ladies recently went to church.  When they arrive, Etana was simply beaming...no one could figure out why.  The church service soon began and Etana walked up to the mic to give a testimony before the whole entire congregation.  Before long, she was reading from an anonymous greeting card that she recently received in the mail from Selah's Angels which had an insert tucked inside with a poem about cancer.  Etana told of how she had made up her mind to just give up and was at the lowest point on her journey living with cancer when this card arrived in the mail.  She moved everyone in the church to tears as she shared how this tiny little card changed her outlook on life!

...and so i thank you all once again for allowing me to dance this ballet of angels with you.  one love, always.

Se'lah - it is what you have known along to be true; that love is the greatest give we can give one another, and the greatest healer of body and soul. Peace and love to you my friend.

To touch the life of someone in need, no matter the need, is something truly beautiful and deeply felt by both the recipient and the giver.
