  • The friendly old lady and the angel

    85 years the friendly old lady would turn today! Now
    she remembered. She looked up from her calendar.
    There it was, in black and white: 85. Exclamation
    mark. Soon she‘d be picked up for her birthday party
    that old friends organized for her. “Jesus Mary!“ she
    mumbled, “that‘s pretty steep, 85!“ Then, after a
    thought break, she said determined to herself,
    “Giddyup, ole grey mare! Get yourself dressed up
    nicely!“ Her body obeyed and moved to the bathroom.



    On her way there she suddenly, without knowing why,
    turned to the beautiful Madonna figure with baby
    Jesus in her arms. In the same moment, the friendly
    old lady heard the Madonna say, “Yes, go ahead.
    Pretty yourself up a little bit!“ “Well for sure, Madonna
    talks to me“, the old lady thought to herself. „Of
    course I do“, the Madonna figure said, „and you will
    see I can do a lot more!“ “Can’t wait to see it“, the
    friendly old lady thought to herself and went into the
    bath. “So you’re starting to hear voices already“, she
    said to her reflection in the bathroom mirror.



    When the friendly old lady, all tarted up, came out of
    the bath again, she couldn‘t believe her eyes! There in
    her comfy leather chair sat a golden luminous figure
    with a friendly look. The old lady wasn‘t frightened,
    but she really had to rub her eyes thoroughly.

    No indeed, a golden luminous figure sat there on her
    television chair and looked at her fixedly. “Jesus!“ it
    flashed through her mind.



    „No“, the luminous figure answered pointing to a
    mighty sword. “The Master never wears weapons.
    Principally not.“

    “So you must be angel Gabriel, right?“ asked the lady,
    with her jaw dropped. “Yes, my deference.“ He stood
    up and bowed his head politely, yes even in perfect
    elegance. The old lady couldn‘t stop wondering.



    The next moment she heard herself say, “May I offer
    you a drink?“ “Yes that would be greatly appreciated“,
    the angel answered promptly, “a cup of coffee – the
    one that‘s left in your pot.“



    While the friendly old lady infused the coffee into the
    cup, the question she‘d digged for arose in her mind,
    “Since when do angels drink coffee?“ it popped out of
    her. “Oh!“ Gabriel answered and took a delightful sip,
    „we don‘t have anything against the joys of the earthly
    existence … we often are interpreted imperfectly in
    this regard.“ “Oh indeed? Well, I‘m so happy to hear
    that,“ the friendly old lady stumbled. Simultaneously
    she noticed her big clock. “Oh God, soon it‘s two
    o‘clock!“ she said, “I get picked up at two. I‘m really
    sorry, Sir Gabriel …“ “No problem, most gracious“,
    Gabriel responded and stood up. Now she could see
    his mighty wings. “But you have wings!“ the friendly
    old lady exclaimed.



    “Oh that‘s common with us angels“, Gabriel said
    formally and continued, “Why I‘m here, most gracious,
    will just take a minute. I‘ve been sent to congratulate
    you!“ “From whom?“ the friendly old lady asked with
    surprise. “The Master himself.“ “Lord Jesus?“ “Yes, of
    course. It was his special order – it was very
    important to him.“ “Couldn‘t a more unimportant angel
    than you have told me that?“ “No“, Gabriel answered
    resolutely, “the Master wanted to make sure his
    wishes were delivered by someone who can‘t be
    overlooked.“ His mighty wings opened gently and
    fanned some air to the old lady who started to break
    out in sweat. Then he took another delightful sip of
    his coffee.



    The friendly old lady was speechless – she couldn‘t
    stop gazing at the angel‘s impressive appearance. He
    seemed to be enchanted by the taste of her simple
    coffee. “Marvelous“, Gabriel said, “wonderfully
    aromatic, hot and black. Many thanks for this tasty
    adventure, most gracious!“ Then he put down the cup,
    slightly shook out his wings and continued. “So,
    herewith I deliver you the warmest birthday wishes
    from heaven and all its inhabitants! Especially from
    your foregone friends and family. Yes and, as I said,
    our Boss in person made sure I would bring you this
    message personally.“



    Really touched, the friendly old lady accepted the
    congratulations. Just when she wanted to thank
    Gabriel he interrupted her and said, “Of course our
    congratulations contain the very best heavenly wishes
    for you, your health and your wellbeing. Only, of
    course, if you wish so.“

    „If I wish what?“ asked the friendly old lady.

    “Health and wellbeing“, Gabriel answered.

    “Why shouldn‘t I want that?“ it popped out of her.

    “Well“, said the angel with a short whiff of sadness,
    “humans have very peculiar wishes, my dear. Often
    times they want to die rather than to be happy and
    simply enjoy this immeasurable Life of ours
    throughout eternity. They prefer to believe they are
    abandoned by God and all good spirits. Angels like us
    do not understand that either! It‘s a long and
    profoundly unreasonable story.“



    „Does this mean that I have to invite health and
    wellbeing in?“ the friendly old lady asked thoughtfully.
    “Yes, of course“, the angel responded, “you just have
    to invite them in, to welcome them. If you don‘t
    actively want these things, they stay outside of the
    door of your life. If only humans suspected how much
    health and wellbeing and joy have to wait and wait
    and wait outside of their doors, just because they
    won‘t let them in.“



    „But that‘s absurd!“ it bursted out of the friendly old
    lady, “well … but I have to admit, I also do that from
    time to time, especially when I feel very lonely.“ When
    she said that a shiver ran through Gabriel and he
    looked at her pervasively. Then he said, and it was as
    if a glorious, long-known but almost forgotten music
    echoed through his words, “You are never alone, do
    you understand? Neither you nor anybody else is ever
    alone. Even if it sometimes appears to be so. Don‘t
    always trust your eyes only. Nobody is ever alone. We
    are always here, always around. Every instant. Be
    certain of that!“



    „Well that’s something“, the friendly old lady said after
    a pause, “that was beautiful, Sir angel!“ And after
    drying some tears from her cheeks she sniffed,
    “Another sip of my delicious coffee?“

    “Well“, Gabriel said, “if you have time left to cook
    some new?“ He looked to the telephone. The next
    moment it rang and the friendly old lady received a
    message that she‘d get picked up for her birthday
    party two hours later.



    “That‘s wonderful!“ she said on her way to the water
    boiler and smiled to herself. „Oh, Sir angel, I thought
    about it. I want it.“ “Want what?“ Gabriel asked.
    “Health and wellbeing and happiness“, the friendly old
    lady said, “for me and for everyone else!“



    There the angel was all smiles …



    The scribe of this story doesn‘t know more about the
    beautiful conversations between angel Gabriel and the
    friendly old lady and how much more coffee was
    drunk. It is reported however that from this first
    meeting on a profound friendship developed between
    these two.

          I am very touched by this Tiger thank you I really mean it I needed to hear this, not to get to personal but I don't think you will hold it against me. I've been dealing with mental illness for a long time and depression and unfortunately sometimes thoughts of thinking I could only find peace in death have played a huge role in my life and wasted precocious time. I've been doing much better over the least year and am glad to find such peaceful inspiration and live in a place like this which helps me to fill driven and have purpose! You really help warm my heart thank you for being you I am fortunate to have an influential and inspirational true soul in my new passion I have for learning from the community this site provides. Thanks again! Stay well my new brother.....
