Angel In Your Pocket



I am a tiny angel ...
I'm smaller than your thumb;
I live in people pockets,
That's where I have my fun.

Angel

I don't suppose you've seen me,
I'm too tiny to detect;
Though I'm with you all the time,
I doubt we've ever met.


Angel


Before I was an Angel ...
I was a fairy in a flower;
God, Himself, hand-picked me,
And gave me Angel power.

Angel

Now God has many Angels
That He trains in Angel pools;
We become His eyes, and ears, and hands ...
We become His special tools.

Angel

And because God is so busy,
With way too much to do;
He said that my assignment
Was to keep close watch on you.


Angel


Then He tucked me in your pocket,
Blessing you with Angel care;
Saying I must never leave you,
And I vowed to stay right there!

LATE NEWS BULLETIN!


Someone has dishonestly taken "Angel In Your Pocket" from Ginny's web page, eliminated a verse, changed the title to "A Tiny Angel" and placed it on the internet with "Author Unknown."   Ginny has written this response on behalf of this "Wayward Angel."



"God's Speed, My Angel"


Among the many blessings,
That God has sent my way ...
Was a tiny pocket Angel,
That fluttered in one day.

Angel

God placed her in a pocket,
She seemed quite happy there;
She did her job of guarding,
And providing Angel care.

I loved that tiny Angel,
But soon word reached my ears ...
She had been seen in Switzerland,
And China and Algiers.


Angel


I wondered if she'd flown away,
So I took another look ...
And there she was, where she belonged,
Right in her pocket nook.

How could it be that she was seen
In a strange and foreign land ...
Yet still be in her pocket home?
I did not understand.


Angel


My guess is God made more than one,
He might have made a pair;
When a pocket picker picked up one,
He left the other there.

Blessings on you, pocket picker ...
Whoever you may be;
You badly need an Angel,
Maybe ... two or three!

Angel

And God's Speed to you, my Angel,
No matter where you are;
I'm glad God made you shareable,
With all souls ... near and far!
