Gratefulness

I am so grateful for angels.  Angels guided and lifted us up during the worst moments of Jamie’s addiction.  The year was 1977.  Jamie was deeply involved with drugs and alcohol.  In September of that year, I wrote this song about my experience of angels.  I share the lyrics with you now to help you become aware of the presence of Angels.  I hope it will remind you that you can call upon them in your own moments of strife.

The angels they watch me all through the day
The angels they guide me like a great ray.
Pouring light in the dark places of my soul
the angels they love me throughout the day.

Like mist in the morning, they seem to appear
Gentle reminders of all I hold dear.
They life me to places I seem to know
Holding the light like the sun’s sweet glow.

Like afternoon warmth they touch my heart so
Opening doorways to times long ago.
Sweet love abounds in me as I realize
My birthright of Godliness that shines through their eyes.

The sun sets on everyone by God’s sweet grace
Light knows no color regardless of race.
The angels of sunset bring forth the night
Reminding God’s children, they are always in sight.

The stars shining brightly over my dome
Are filled with the angel light of my true home.
They sprinkle the stardust of love from above
Like music that comes from a sweet mourning dove.

The angels they watch me all through the day
The angels they guide me like a great ray.
Pouring light in the dark places of my soul
The angels they love me throughout the day.

They also love to celebrate our successes.  As Jamie enters her 10th year of recovery, the same angels surround our home with sounds of joyful celebration.  I love them.

Be well,
John Chupka
