The following isn't exactly a teaching about angels as much as it's my true (and slightly tongue-in-cheek) testimony....
MY GUARDIAN ANGELS
As I look back on my life it's scary to see
My many close calls with calamities,
When all I could do when I needed quick help
Was to mutter some prayer and a pitiful yelp.
I never knew what pulled me on through
But I knew it was something that I didn't do.
So what could it be that snatched me from harm?
Was it merely coincidence?--or some lucky charm?
Well, whatever the source, it sure has been strong,
watchful and faithful my whole life long.
And then one night, as I slumbered away,
A couple of angels stopped by to say:
“We were assigned to you the day you were born;
You’ve put us to the test and we’re tuckered and worn.
Guarding you was our job and we did our job well;
Ten thousand times we have snatched you from hell.”
And then with a sigh and a heavenly laugh
They lovingly asked for my autograph.
