In the season of Advent in our church, we celebrate each Sunday by lighting candles, one each Sunday, representing Love, Hope, Joy, and Peace. It is a time of preparation for the Christmas season, which is ushered in on Christmas Eve at midnight, with Christmas Day (the lighting of the Christ Candle) and the birth of our Savior, the Prince of Peace. There’s much symbolism and meaning to be found in the Advent season with incorporating the Advent Wreath and candles, and sharing the Light of the World.
Likewise, in our everyday lifestyle, we scurry around with much preparation for Christmas, with decorating our homes, finding special gifts for many special people on our list, and enjoying beautiful memories of the past and creating memories for the present and future. In the Christmas Spirit, our hearts are full and we find symbolism and memories with many of our decorations and ornaments, as well.
The older I get, the more I am drawn to angels, in a big way. I have always felt a connection to angels, and especially at Christmas, but a lot of my “special angels” are year round “ornaments” in my home. The Red Bird and it’s meaning ties into my Angel attraction too. And there are many references to my red birds in my home, all year round.
I’ve received many gifts throughout the years, which are such wonderful reminders that there are Earth angels too; they are impactful on our lives in significant ways……
I thought I would share just a few of my special angels and red birds with you, today, as we prepare for Christmas Day.
If you want to dive a little deeper into the significance of the Red Bird, there’s a wonderful book I discovered after losing a dear friend. Red birds were a comfort to me then, and they have a way of reassuring me all the time. “Gift of the Red Bird – the Story of a Divine Encounter” by Paula D’Arcy is especially significant if you experienced a loss.
Another book I have found, “Healing with the Angels”, by Doreen Virtue, is also a very
good read to quench your thirst for angel moments.
