Pray there’s no mix-up: Angel vs. angle

Oh what a difference a letter makes! Transpose the letters “l” and “e” in these two words, and you end up with very different meanings.

An angel is a supernatural being with feathered wings on its back, as in An angel descended from the sky and said she was here to help me through these difficult times.

An angle, however, is a figure formed when two lines meet and share a common endpoint, as in We studied angles during geometry class.
