Waking Angel

This animated angel wakes
in blue light.
"Then the Angel of the Lord put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the offering. Then the Angel of the Lord departed out of his sight." Judges 6:21

       How can an angel wake if he never sleeps? Indeed his wakefulness is something akin to acting upon whatever mission he has been given by the Lord Almighty, between Heavenly spaces and the earthly places where men dwell. He wakes as soon as God calls, deliver me this or deliver me that. These waking angel animations remind me of those moments. 

Description of Angel Animations: Two variations of angels waking to the call of the Almighty. One in blues and the other in golds. At first they appear in greyscale and then in color as an animated bar sweeps across the surface of each photograph. Angel animated by Kathy Grimm.

"The guardian angel of life sometimes flies so high that man cannot see it; but he always is looking down upon us, and will soon hover nearer to us. --Richter

"The idea of guardian angels is taken from the fact that they guarded and defended our Savior; hence, too, they are employed to defend the members of His mystical body. These are as dear to Christ as the apple of His own eye, and the motive that lie presents for not harming even the  least one of these, is because their angels continually behold the face of their Father in heaven." -- Rev. Moses Kieffer, D. D.
