One Little Angel
There was a wee, small, little angel
who tried so hard to please.
Her only chore was ringing the choir bell,
but nothing came with ease.
Because the older angels disregarded her chore,
one day she asked if she could see Jesus.
But her request they did ignore,
and paid no attention to her fuss.
This wee, small, little angel was so dear.
She cried and prayed for something special to do,
but none of the others bothered to hear.
She prayed and asked Jesus if what she did was important, too.
The next morning she was called to see the Holy One
for He wanted to hear what she had to say.
He replied to her, “I am God’s only Son,
and you are loved in every way.”
He assigned her to stay by his side
to welcome all the wee little ones,
and to assure them in heaven they would reside,
babies who were someone’s daughter or son.
Each evening she would climb in Jesus’ lap,
knowing she was also loved by his Holy Grace.
Her new task fully filled the gap.
Now she felt important in this celestial place.
This poem is what inspired me to write the “Muffin and the Junior Guardian angel Posse”. It seemed to me that children of all ages are always trying to find their way and feel like that can do something special. I hope you’ll love the series.
