Angels Among Us

I have to tell you about last Sunday. My young women's group was asked to help with the Sunday service at an assisted living center in Sandy. Sunday service in an assisted living center isn't like a usual church meeting. It is much shorter. There's an opening song and prayer. Then the sacrament is blessed and given, and that is followed by a very short program.

So last Sunday, we had the song and prayer. A couple of boys from a different ward came to bless and pass the sacrament. One little lady had trouble taking the bread, so the young men passing it to her gently took a piece and placed it in her mouth. It touched my heart to see a young man so tender and thoughtful to a frail elderly woman.

The program progressed and the girls gave wonderful talks and then they sang I Am a Child of God in Portuguese (two of our young women are from Portugal and one from Brazil). I came away teary eyed. And I thought about the angels who are among us everyday, doing random acts of kindness. I'm talking about actual people who go out of their way to help others. It made me think of angels among us. You know, people who serve others everyday without thought of compensation or what's in it for them. I'm certain many of you have witnessed such noble acts. I'd love to hear about them.
