I’ve learned a lot about Angels since I began painting them a little over one year ago. When I started my spiritual journey, I bought almost every Doreen Virtue book I could get my hands on. I’ve read about Guardian Angels, Archangels, Nature Angels, Romance Angels, Angels of Abundance and more. But coffee Angels?
I’m pretty sure Angels and Archangels don’t drink coffee, but if they did, chances are it would be today. Aside from being my favorite aunts birthday, September 29 is celebrated as The Feast Day of the Angels and Archangels, and oh yeah, National Coffee Day!
I’m not surprised my favorite aunts birthday falls on this day. For she has many angelic qualities that I hope to aspire to myself. I was surprised, however, to see the number of people on social media who knew it was coffee day and not angel day. Starbucks, on the other hand, would probably be happy to hear about the high number of people celebrating their magic little bean today. Although, since its officially Autumn, they probably don’t need too much extra advertising seeing as how, I myself, have probably already surpassed the number of pumpkin spice lattes one should consume and its not even October yet.
I was recently reminded myself that today is Archangel Day. I say reminded because as someone who was raised Catholic I probably just forgot, right? All joking aside, September 29 is what has been known as Michealmas, or The Feast Day of St. Micheal, the Archangel. It was later changed into The Feast Day of all Angels and Archangels.
In honor of today I decided to hold my first Etsy sale. Now thru Sunday enjoy 10% off all purchases in my Etsy shop. At checkout please enter Coupon code: Archangel.
And you thought I was going to go get another pumpkin spice latte!
