Elder Holland: "Not All Angels Are from the Other Side of the Veil"


Recently, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland wrote about the people he has encountered in his life who are truly angelic. All of us have come in contact with those who uplift, who encourage, who inspire, and who silently serve us as earthly angels inspired by our Heavenly Father. 

As Elder Holland notes:

When we speak of those who are instruments in the hand of God, we are reminded that not all angels are from the other side of the veil. Some of them we walk with and talk with—here, now, every day. Some of them reside in our own neighborhoods. Some of them gave birth to us, and in my case, one of them consented to marry me. Indeed, heaven never seems closer than when we see the love of God manifested in the kindness and devotion of people so good and so pure that angelic is the only word that comes to mind.

Take a little time to remember and thank those who have brought the light of heaven into your life.
