The angel outside of this building is longing to be of service – to do his job. His charge is inside, behind closed doors and windows. Unwilling to be assisted. I believe that there is always help for us from physical and non-physical sources. We are never thrown into a situation in life without the means to pull ourselves out of it. But so often we become so deeply attached to our own suffering that we can’t see the angels for the feathers.
