ANGEL

The wings of Angels are often found on the backs of the least likely people. Angels shine from without because their spirits are lit from within by the light of God. Angels are messengers, but sometimes we misunderstand their language. Angels sail back to God on the sea of joy. If we were all like angels, the world would be a heavenly place.

News is due by noon Friday. Any news received after this time will not be included in this column. News can be submitted by calling (434) 568-0596.
