Children's Views on Angels


"It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to heaven, then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes." - Matthew, 9

"I only know the names of two angels: Hark and Harold."- Gregory, 5

"Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists know all about it now." - Olive, 9

"Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else."- Mitchell, 7

"My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science." - Henry, 8

"Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from holy cows."- Scooter, 6
"Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The basic message is where you went wrong before you got dead." - Daniel, 7

"When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten, and when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado."- Regan, 5

"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 north for the winter. - Sara, 6

"Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter."- Jared , 8

"All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it." - Antonia, 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 kid get over it."- Vicki, 8

"What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them." - Sarah, 7

These are PRECIOUS indeed! Art Linkletter was right, kids DO say the darndest things ... and their view is often spot-on!

Thanks for visiting Small Reflections and leaving your comment. As I wrote there in my response to you, “Who said anyone needs to be ‘profound’ ??? A smile, wave, or ‘howdy do’ is lovely when I sit down at the computer in the morning with my coffee! How else would I know I’m not talking to myself in an empty room? Goodness knows, I do enough of that (as is) living alone … with Molly and Ms. Kitty, of course.” … so, stop by any time and write ANYTHING!
Hugs and blessings,

Thank you Yolanda for your kind words. The photo was taken when I obviously had ambitions of shooting for the Moon. :)
