Not long ago, I decided to put up and decorate my really old Christmas tree. My grandson was visiting and together we strung lights on the poor old – I mean really old tree. I dug the angel tree topper from a crate of ornaments and asked him if he would like to put it atop the tree.
I hauled out a short ladder and he climbed up and placed the angel, kind of kittywhompus on the top. Not being content with just the angel, he hung a golden ornament from her hand and strung some golden star tinsel around her head. Crooked was okay with him and he climbed down, happy with his work.
The next day I noticed there was something strange about the angel. I moved closer to have a look and the entire angel was clothed in a transparent veil! I knew I had nothing like it and would have noticed if he had put anything more than the ornament and starry tinsel.
Whatever it is made from – or whatever creature made it, I don’t know and until the tree comes down, I am not looking any closer. As I haven’t seen any moving parts to the tree, I can’t imagine what made it and at this point in the holiday season, don’t really want to know.
I am just considering it an angel miracle, wishing me and you a joyful and peaceful Christmas!
