EVERY OTHER YEAR I GET TO make my favorite announcement: Writers, take your marks! Yes, it’s time for our biennial Guideposts Writers Workshop Contest.

an angel took the light-rail

THE MINNEAPOLIS CITYSCAPE was a blur as the train rattled along the tracks. I usually loved watching the scenery go by, but it was hard to enjoy the family outing with our 16-month-old fussing so much. Leo sat in his stroller, chubby legs kicking. He wasn’t himself. “Is he okay?” Josh asked. “I don’t know,” I said. “He’s been like this all day. And he didn’t eat much at dinner.” I hoped the train ride would help calm him. We were on the light-rail headed to Target Field to see the Minnesota Twins face off against the Detroit Tigers. I loved baseball—a love I hoped to pass down to our son. But it was clear that Leo wasn’t enjoying the experience so far. I was wondering if we were going to be late, when…

Cat by Surprise Our beloved cat Abby had died months ago, and finding another wouldn’t be so easy. Abby came to us by way of the local dump, where she had been abandoned. The woman who rescued her was allergic to cats, so we ended up taking her in. Our cats had always been sent to us in unusual ways. Maybe it’s asking too much to have a cat appear out of the blue again, I thought one day as I walked the hallway of the junior high school where I worked as a teacher’s assistant. A colleague passed me with a black cat in her arms. I stopped short. “Guess who jumped into the window of the girl’s bathroom on the first floor?” she said. “Well, aren’t you cute.” I scratched under…

lost & found

MEMORIAL DAY meant a cookout at my mom’s house with no work on the agenda except for minding the barbecue pit. Of course, that didn’t last long. Since Dad had passed away three years ago, there were always a few chores Mom needed a hand with. The hedges were in need of a trim, so after lunch my husband, John, and I set off to find the shears. But they weren’t in their usual place in the garage. And they weren’t in Dad’s old workshop, either. “I’ll take a look in the shed,” I told John. We had searched everywhere else. Unlike Dad’s workshop, which Mom and I still hadn’t gotten around to cleaning out, his toolshed was practically empty. We rarely had any reason to go in there, but I…

WHEN HURRICANE KATRINA HIT the Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005, my husband and I lost everything. In the weeks that followed, I found myself craving normalcy—and sweet strawberries. So I bought a whole crate of plump red berries from a roadside stand, planning to share with my neighbors who were also still recovering from the disaster. I was washing the fruit when I noticed that one strawberry looked different from the rest. It was very large and oddly shaped. In fact, the more I stared at it, I realized it kind of looked like…an angel! Turned out I had more than fruit to share with my neighbors. I had hope.…
