"For He will command His Angels concerning you; to guard you in all your ways......."
We've all heard of and know about many of God's Angels; Guardian Angels and Archangels. Gabriel and Michael are maybe the most popular. There is one Angel, of which many folks have not heard. His name is Malik, Guardian of our Love and Joy. Malik was assigned to our family and came to this earth in human form, via the Holy union of my cousins, Mark and Erika Nettles. A true blessing he was to them and to us all, as family. God has been good to us!
Malik's assignment ended last week, as our God called him back to his Heavenly form. Today, we mourn his parting and celebrate his life on earth. Truth be told, I didn't get a whole lot of time to spend with Malik, but my mind has been on the memories I do actually have of him. Love and Joy are what I see in each of these memories. I see excitement that was absolutely insuppressible and Love that only can come directly from the heart of our God. His permanent smile could cut through concrete, let alone any dark clouds of depression or ill feelings.
I lift you up today, my Baby Cousin, as you did for us! I lift you up! I thank God for the blessing our family was given through you. To know Love like that which you delivered, is a rare opportunity on this earth, in its current state. Oh, how I wish I could have made it to Lake Martin, the last time your Dad called to let me know you all were there! That place is special to me and I know it was to you too. Be well in Heaven, young one, be well.

So Full of Love
So Full of Joy
