Entertaining Angels Unawares


So I have returned home to have some down time and create some newly commissioned artwork.  

On the journey back I was sat next to an interesting lady of 82.  Quite a character and happy to chat.  Often she chose poetry or phrases from the bible to convey her sense of meaning which was quite endearing.  We talked about health, family, love, youth, art… 

Moral code again. 

The older lady , we did not exchange names, is from outside Perth and quite appreciates the artistic culture she finds herself in, this very much came through in her stories and she had a good sense of her own soul.  In talking about travel she has often met people on buses who were either in the mood to talk or preferred silence.  She generally just respects people as they are and as a result has talked with many.  ‘Entertaining Angels unawares’ she called it, from The Bible, Hebrews 13:2. Translation:  “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it”

She said you just never know to whom you have been talking always best to be respectful and kind.  

I think this little old lady was an angel 🙂
