SANCTUARY LIGHT: No request for this week. 

Ten angels walk beside me, each and every day.
Ten angels help to guide me, to give comfort and protect.
They have been my companions since I was very young.
Now you may ask me, why Ten?
Do you think you are special? Why not one, or two, or three? Why Ten?
Surely you don’t need so many? Well, each and every angel has a special job to do.
Yes, it seems even angels, specialize.

All of us know Faith, Hope, and Charity.
They are wonderful angels, and ALL so overworked.
But there are seven more you see, and each and every one gives comfort and protects.
The Fourth angel is the angel I call TEMPERANCE. Whom I fear we do not use enough, for if we did, there would not be any BIGOTRY, OR HATE.
The next angel is the one I call FORGIVENESS, who is under utilized as well. 

Who among us could not do with more FORGIVENESS in our hearts.
 Then we have the angel I call BEAUTY. We all see so much ugliness in life,

 I don’t know a single soul, who couldn’t do with more BEAUTY in their life.
The next two angels are the twins I call JOY and HAPPINESS.
They are most often seen holding hands.

My favorite angel is the one I call FRIEND.
This little angel is the one who can bring real riches to our lives.
I have often heard him saying, “To have a friend, one must first be a friend”.
And do you know, it WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And last but in no way least, is the angel I call, LOVE.
Sometimes he seems so gentle, and it seems like he is sleeping.

But he is always near. If we would only open up our hearts, and just see him standing there. For if we did, then all the other Angels would be easier to see. It is my belief that we all have many angels walking with us. They are sent from God, 

to see us through, to guide, comfort and protect us until the day we join HIM, in the place we call HEAVEN.

There is much wisdom in knowing what to see.  

Lord, may I take every opportunity to praise 

and choose carefully when I feel the need to criticize.

HOW TO STAY YOUNG . . .

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. Your age is just a number.
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s family name is Alzheimer’s.
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. BE ALIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with who and what you love – God, Church, family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to another country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. At every opportunity, tell the people you love that you love them.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away

11. Treat others as you would want to be treated.

12. AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Thank God for giving you life!

What you are is God’s gift,

What you make of yourself is your

Gift to God.
