Angels - As Explained by Children

And They Ought to Know

H/t My DearWife

I only know the names of two angels,

              Hark and Harold.

Gregory, age 5

Everybody's got it all wrong.
Angels don't wear halos anymore.
I forget why, but scientists are working on it

-Olive, age 9

It's not easy to become an angel!
First, you die. Then you go to Heaven,
and then there's still the flight training
to go through. And then you got to agree
to wear those angel clothes.

-Matthew, age 9

Angels work for God and watch over kids
when God has to go do something else.

-Mitchell, age 7

My guardian angel helps me with math,
but he's not much good for science.

-Henry, age 8

Angels don't eat, but they drink milk...
from Holy Cows!!!

-Jack, age 6

Angels talk all the way
while they're flying you up
to heaven.

The main subject is
where you went wrong before you got dead.

Daniel, age 9

When an angel gets mad,
he takes a deep breath
and counts to ten.
And when he lets out his breath again,
somewhere there's a tornado.

-Reagan, age 10

Angels have a lot to do
and they keep very busy.
If you lose a tooth,

an angel comes in through your window
and leaves money under your pillow.
Then when it gets cold,
angels go south for the winter.

-Sara, age 6

Angels live in cloud houses made by God
and his Son,
who's a very good carpenter.

-Jared, age 8

All angels are girls because they gotta wear
dresses and boys didn't go for it.

-Antonio, age 9

Some of the angels are in charge
of helping heal sick animals and pets.
And, if they don't make the animals get better,
they help the child get over it.

- Vicki , age 8

What I don't get about angels is why,
when someone is in love,
they shoot arrows at them.

- Sarah , age 7

and the last one

My angel is my grandma
who died last year.
She got a big head start
on helping me
while she was still down here on earth.

-Ashley ~ age 9
