Health to You

A friend is having surgery today.
St. Michael  is the patron of police officers, and I think the illustration will serve for other reasons, too. But the dress has got to go. The boots should be more substantial for fighting a dragon, assailing a serpent, or barring a forbidden Gate. Possibly Danners.

Get well soon, my frand, and much health and joy to you and yours.

I just travelled the surgery journey last Christmas, and let me tell you, in spite of the kilt and the inadequate footwear, the dude rocks it! St. Michael also wears scrubs and dreadlocks and peeks in around 3 a.m. in recovery to see how you're doing. You friend will know him by his huge white-toothed triumphant smile. And the hospital staff will never see him coming and going. Stealth Angel!

I will be sending healing energy your friend's way during my meditation practice today.

Whenever I was in hospital, it never ceased to amaze me how many strangers I saw (doctors, nurses, etc), and yet, THEY were the "angels" in the wards.

Reminds me of that Bible passage (Hebrews 13:2)
" Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."

I was as much a stanger to them as well.
Something to ponder there.

My thoughts go out to your friend.

(and St. Michael must have known something about God and his ability to want to don such garments...I mean that is a small dragon, right?)

Dear Linnnn and Bob,
I can't tell you how wonderful it is to know that you will send good thoughts to the friend of a friend. Thank you very much.

And yes, angels among mankind,
I think they have commented here.

Dear Meleah,
This is very sweet of you. Another set of prayers winging to a friend--he will be the better thereby!
