Jon Kennedy, webmaster Encounters with angels - 5

Several more accounts of angel incidents have been received, so the topic is being continued this week. Today's is from Judy Rose.—Webmaster Jon Kennedy

Hi Jon,

In response to your Jonals and the presence of angels in our lives...I too feel that at least one time in my life I indeed was "touched" or visited by one. I was 50 years old and had decided to take the scary plunge of going back to college to get an associates degree in nursing science. I was the oldest person in my class,and going up against classmates half my age and younger.

I believe the "Touch" from my angel came early on in my first semester. All of us were scheduled to take the required medications calculation test and 100 percent correct was the criteria, nothing less. You could take the test as many times as necessary, but 100 percent was needed to move on, or you were out! The test was comprised of 25 of the scariest algebra problems in the world to a 50-year-old grandmother who had never taken algebra. I had opted against taking a supplemental math course and I was up against it in a big way, to say the least.

On my first attempt...failure by 50 percent! I waited one week to take it again. I studied and converted and studied and converted until my mind was just about numb and my psyche frantic. I had to do this, I had to succeed! The night before the test, I said a prayer: "God, I have done all I can, it's up to you now." The next day as I prepared to take the test for the second time, I too felt the warmness, the peaceful feeling. With my pencil in hand, I whizzed through the 25 med calculation problems with ease.

I knew I had done it! 100 percent. Was I touched by an angel? I think so.

Next topic: Santa Claus, pro or con?

Do you "believe in" Santa Claus? Should your children or grandchildren be told the legends, or are they in some way harmful? Alternate: Do you have a favorite Santa Claus anecdote?

Thought for today

By means of shrewd lies, unremittingly repeated, it is possible to make people believe that heaven is hell, and hell heaven. The greater the lie, the more readily it will be believed.

—Adolf Hitler, from Mein Kampf
