Angels Watching 'Round My Head

It seems that blog posts grow fewer and farther between in the summer time. It has been a while since my last post, but the Lord knows that I have been busy. Busy at thrifting this book of angel mobiles for $1. It's so beautiful and completely in tact.

The angels segments are precut paperboard, labeled and ready for hanging. There are so many! I may make mobiles... I may use them in decoupage... or scrapbooking if I ever get around to it.

This book brought to mind the bedtime prayer I repeated nightly during my youth: There are four corners on my bed, angels watching 'round my head, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, bless this bed I lay on. Amen.

I'll leave you with one last note from Psalm 91:11, "For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways."

And mobiles may be a great way to remember this.

How wonderful you still remember your childhood bedtime prayer! It is flattering to your parents. Love your angels. They are so beautiful it is hard to decide exactly HOW to use them, isn't it? No matter what you decide, they will be lovely.

Wow, I'm very envious of your ability to find thrift store treasures. I was never patient enough to become an accomplished thrifter, and now that I have a 6 year old, 4 year old, and 2 year old, my shopping opportunities are rare!

I love the scripture; I don't read those as much as I used to either!!! I blame everything on kids, but I guess I need to admit that my prioritizing needs to be a little better!

We had a bedtime prayer too, but I think yours is better. I hope you are teaching it to Charlotte, and soon she will be saying it herself.

I wonder what g.r. 's (previous post) bedtime prayer was? I would like to hear that one too. This Psalm you left is a sweet to remember and a wonderful promise.
