This is a beautiful guardian print, and the baby is asleep so the angel’s attention is drawn to the girl who appears to be darning a sock, something children today would probably never do. She is also holding a paper, and I would love to know what would be written there.
Is it a list of things, she, herself was assigned to do or is she checking off the girl’s chores. Perhaps, she was told to watch the baby and darn, either a sock or stocking, and as she leans over to check on the little sister or brother, she is blissfully unaware of the angel.
It states in Hebrews 13:2, that we often entertain angels unaware, in the form of strangers or guests, but we often do so as well in our day to day lives. I would imagine that we pass dozens our even hundreds every day, and if were were in a crowd, innumerable.
Thank you, Lord for your angels and protection. I hope you are enjoying these slices of Victorian life, but be sure, angels are still present, in the company of His Holy Spirit. His peace, Rebecca Jones
