There was the little neighbor boy in the corner drug store browsing around the candy racks. “Hey, kid, put that back. I saw that.” He slipped the candy bar into his pocket and walked out of the store. Then, there was the lady I know from church sitting at her office desk working frantically. I wonder why she seems so distraught. What could be weighing upon her so heavily.
“Alexandra, is this what you do all day. Do you perch yourself up here on a cloud and watch to see what happens?” He explained, “I am usually down there picking someone up and setting them back upon their feet or providing protection from harm. I enjoy coming up for a walk on the clouds. I find it peaceful, and the view is clear,” he said.
I watched for a minute longer to see a young man help an elderly lady across the crowded street with her load of groceries. On one side of town, a gang was spray painting the side of a building in the back alley. A group of youth across the tracks was pitching in to pick up trash at the community park. Everywhere that the eye could roam, it was evident that a battle was raging between good and evil. Alexandra is just one angel doing his best to make a difference against the forces of darkness. With that, my walk in the clouds was over. I returned home to try to touch one life at a time, leaving the fingerprints of God wherever I trod.
