What do angels look like? A new article by best-selling author Jody Sharpe offers multiple perspectives on how angels look
WILMINGTON, NC, Feb. 24, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — There’s no doubt that angels exist. However, the characteristics of angels are as varied as those who have encountered them in this world. Sharpe not only writes books about angels, she also collects stories about angels for the “Tuesdays with Angels” section of her website. She recently published an article with a number of descriptions of angels and encounters with angels:
“To me, angels are as different as falling snowflakes,” Sharpe wrote. “They come in human form and in angel form, like we do, in different colors and shapes and sizes. I have never seen an angel with wings, but others I know have seen angels themselves. Some look like humans, some look like angels, and some are invisible.
“I’m also sure there is heaven above, I met an angel once over 25 years ago. He came in the form of a human, an older gentleman. Months after my daughter Kate, passed away suddenly. My dear friend, Nancy, invited me on a girls trip to Houston. On the first day of our trip to Houston, we went shopping at an upscale mall. There we met a man in a big store and just gave him a friendly hello to the men’s department, however the next day the man approached for us in a small store in a town an hour’s drive away. from Houston where neither of us had ever been. The tall man walked up to us and surprised us by saying “hello girls”. We chatted for a few minutes and he said, we jokingly thought, “See you at the airport.” Nancy and I laughed and turned to look at some presents. ts later, when Nancy and I turned back to him, the man was gone. Later we realized he must be an angel because it seemed like an amazing encounter. My fear of flying intensified after my daughter passed away. As we were looking down the street that day long ago, the gentleman was nowhere? We sat at a small table outside the store and thought, “Could this man be an angel sent to comfort me? My fear of flying has lessened over the years now and I have looked for him in airports but haven’t seen him, yet I know he is there. He never told us his name and we never told him ours, but to this day I call him, the man I call Angel.
“As I’ve been writing my Mystic Bay series over the past ten years, my novels have centered around angels living as humans. I’ve certainly asked a lot of people if they’ve seen angels. And to to my surprise, so many friends and strangers have had experiences. They are all first-hand from people I call friends or meet at literary events. Every encounter is comforting to me and extraordinary. A meeting is from a friend. Her husband had passed away. An angel appeared to her and identified herself as her guardian angel. She could not see his face clearly, but his wings were a beautiful gray blue color, folded at her side. She said he said comforting words to her when she felt bad that day. She said he was about 12 feet tall. She never forgot how her angel helped her with words of love and his presence that day.

“Children with Special Needs, Angels on My Shoulder” is a memoir based on his twenty-five years of teaching children with special needs. The book placed second in the National Federation of Women’s Press At-Large Communications Contest. The book is both entertaining and enlightening. It’s a love story about special students and others who over the years have graced his life with that, their grace.
With hearts of angels and challenges ahead, the children took Sharpe on their journeys and inspired her own life’s journey of self-discovery. When heartbreak came, their kindness got her through. The synchronicity of events from high school to retirement changed her life for the better, turning her face to the sky.
Midwest Book Review said, “Sharpe’s ability to see the good in circumstances and people identifies the ‘special’ in ‘special needs’ as she describes her journey through the educational system and these teaching encounters and social events that changed his perspective and his life.
“Teachers (especially those who work with children with special needs) will find this spiritual and social reflection easily accessible. It’s presented in vignettes that offer small, digestible bites of a glimpse into a world where angels and kindness are present in more than one form.
“Children with Special Needs” followed his recently published children’s book about angels, “When the Angel Sent Butterflies.” The new book helps children understand that the love of their parents and others surrounds them. Love conquers fear and believing that angels are near can help wash away any childhood fears. This concept is featured in the book when Angel Ken sends butterflies to Jones and Kate. The book, suitable for ages 2 to 7, is available now on Amazon and Ingram.

The valuable lessons she learned about moving forward and loving life in the present gave her a mission to tell the stories with love, humor and spiritual awakening.
