Cemetery Angels BillionGraves – Tombstone Tuesdays December 24, 2019

I thought this was a good Tombstone Tuesdays post from BillionGravesCemetery Angels: http://blog.billiongraves.com/cemetery-angels/.

Some of the most touching graveside monuments are cemetery angels. The angels appear in many forms. There are angels dressed in flowing robes with feathery wings and joyful smiles. Others are serious guardians of the deceased, bearing swords. Some carry crosses or flowers. Some angels sit in front of scrolls with pens poised in their hands as they keep a written record of all we do and say.

Many scriptures reference the work of angels. Some angels deliver messages of peace and joy, others issue warnings, still others bring comfort and strength.

During the Christmas season, Christians around the world sing Angels We Have Heard on High in remembrance of the angels who visited the earth to announce the birth of Jesus Christ.

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing,
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plains.
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.
