I am not one of those who collect Angels in every way, shape or form available. But, I do have this one who I am quite fond of. He is old - over 400 years....
I bought him at an Antique Show many years ago. He is German and came directly out of a Church that was closed down. I haven't made any attempt at restoration....I prefer the old, fading, but original colours - from the soft blue of his robe to the extraordinary silver and gold wings. When I saw him, I had to have him.... He has had a place of honour in my living room for several years now. (The Rosary is an added touch of mine..)
When I look at him, I think about the "real" Angels I know - and have known.
I feel blessed to have met a few in my lifetime.... my Mum and Renee to name two.
