Rosemary is one such model. Rosemary reminds us of the salient point when anticipating the Spirit’s presence in our lives, “I believe”. There are many ways that angels enter our lives. In the form of an unexpected visitor bringing a good word, in the form of a caring peer who shares a great idea at just the right time, or in the form of a stranger, offering something we seek or
seeking something we have to offer. These angels are a reminder to us that God is present among us and has gifted us for this work.
What do you believe about angels? What experiences have you had to remind you that sometimes we are, “entertaining angels, unaware”? How do you understand answers revealed to prayers unspoken and yet, the answer appears? What moments of aha have you had for which you give gratitude and which help you proclaim, “I believe in angels”?
I believe Rosemary’s best testimony is her faithful and dedicated work as a faith formation practitioner within her church and within our wider community. She is dedicated, thoughtful, gracious, hardworking and deeply caring and compassionate. Her second best testimony may be, “I believe in angels”!
