Art and soul
I love representations of angels in artwork. I particularly fancy those that depict the angels as either brandishing swords or blowing into trumpets. Angels in courageous-looking stance are a great reminder of their being our valiant defenders against harm; and can any bad news follow the blowing of trumpets? It's always a piece of good news they deliver, as it was on that night of the first Christmas -- lucky shepherds for being the first to be told by heaven's messengers about the great news.
This angel illustration you see here is by an American artist named Claire Flint.
Happy weekend to all and I hope that amid the constant -- sometimes frenzied -- activity that the season is bringing as Christmas Day approaches, you are able to ponder on the meaning of Advent so as to bring significance into the season for you beyond the toys and tinsel.
