Have you ever tried explaining to a child why the sky is blue? Or why there is thunder? Perhaps you've made up stories like
"God's angels must be fighting and saving the gates of heaven that's why you hear the sky rumbling and that is what your call thunder."
Kids love the idea of angels and you'd be surprised at how creative they are when asked about these celestial beings.
I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold.
--Gregory, age 5
Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it.
--Olive, age 9
It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
--Matthew, age 9
Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.
--Mitchell, age 7
My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
--Henry, age 8
Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!!
--Jack, age 6
Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead.
--Daniel, age 9
When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath again, somewhere there's a tornado.
--Reagan, age 10
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 south for the winter.
--Sara, age 6
Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.
--Jared, age 8
