I have an angel. This angel dangles from my rearview mirror. It is pretty and it has a charm. The charm has one word:  LOVE.

I bought the angel last week when I went to Books-a-Million to buy “Accounting for Dummies.”

Don’t worry about why I bought a ‘for Dummies’ book. My daughter told me that she can’t believe I actually bought one of THOSE books.

Back to the angel.

I have road rage. I am better, but since I am a recovering road rager it doesn’t take much for it to raise its ugly head and cause me to slip over the edge into road rage abyss. Then I feel guilty because I slipped, but it was all that guys fault since he pulled out in front of me or that silly woman who didn’t check her blind spot and almost ran me off the road.

I always ask for forgiveness. For me and for them.


I had an epiphany. I will hang the little pretty angel on my rearview mirror and it will remind me of God whenever I feel a rage coming on. There were three angels: Faith, Love, Hope.

Well, I have Faith that I can overcome my road rage. I have Hope that I can overcome my road rage. How does Love apply?

That is when it hit me. I think it was God hitting me. He does that sometimes.

He said “Sonya, do you remember which were the two greatest commandments that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 22: 37-39?” Well, He didn’t quite say it like that to me, but you get the idea.

37Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] –Matthew 22:37-39

That sealed it. I needed Love for my fellow neighbor’s on the road. That is why I bought the Love Angel.

When people say that they heard from God or that God spoke to them, don’t think that they are crazy. God really speaks into our spirit if we open ourselves up to Him. God didn’t say, “Sonya, buyeth the Love Angel,” or “Sonya, I command thee to buyeth the Love angel.”

Actually, He hit me with it.

Thank You, Lord. The Love Angel has blessed me and I think of You every time I get in my car and see the Love Angel. It has helped my road rage.

Yes, Lord, I know it isn’t the Love Angel that is helping me. It is YOU!
