(DEBORAH ORY)DID YOU EVER get an email that just made your day? A reader e-mail can do that for me.“Hi, Colleen,” Dick Mendelsohn wrote from upstate New York. “I just got the latest edition of Angels in the mail and read your column. Evie sounds like quite a wonderful young lady.” I’d alluded to some challenges raising my 16-year-old daughter, but yes, Mr. Mendelsohn was right. I was glad to have done Evie justice in the eyes of a reader.“Years ago we commuted together on the 7:20 a.m. train to Grand Central,” he went on. “One day we shared a five-seater, and you noticed I was reading Guideposts. You excitedly told me about the brand-new Angels start-up you’d be working on.” That was almost 25 years ago!Dick remembered when I’d…

touched by an angel

“SORRY, I CAN’T STAY,” I told my friends as I gathered my things. “But I need to get on the road.” Normally I would never leave a Bible study early, even an informal one among friends. But I had a five-hour drive to my daughter’s for the weekend, and it seemed like a good idea to get some prayers.My friends bowed their heads. “Please send angels to protect Marilyn on her trip,” one said before they saw me out.Now I felt prepared. I waved from my Subaru Outback and got on the highway. It wasn’t as if I hadn’t made the trip before, even without my husband, Doug.I glanced into the right lane, looking for a chance to pass the pickup truck ahead of me. Not yet. So I stepped…

angels in bloom

The Garden’s LessonHigh school isn’t easy, even for a teacher. My first year had been nothing short of frustrating. I had so many problem students, I couldn’t control them. They wouldn’t sit still, got distracted, talked in class. The more I scolded, the worse it became. After a particularly stressful day, I decided to clear my head and do a little gardening.I’d moved into my grandmom’s house after she died. The garden had been her pride and joy, but some of her methods were a little unorthodox. As I put on my gardening gloves, I remembered trying to pull some weeds for her one day. “No, Casie, let them grow,” she said. “Sometimes the most beautiful blooms come from unexpected places.”Now, in the front yard, I stared down a tall…

her precious vision

JOSHUA LAY in my arms for the first and last time. Joshua, my son, 11 days old. It was the last time I would hold him. The last time I would see him.His condition came as a shock to us all. There were no signs of trouble during the pregnancy. My husband, Steve, and I watched him growing through routine sonograms. Our three-year-old, Lauren, told everyone she was having a baby brother. When Joshua arrived on his grandfather’s birthday, it was the happiest day of my life.Then everything changed. Joshua was born with a diaphragmatic hernia. His lungs weren’t fully developed; his intestines pushed into his chest cavity. “The hernia developed late in the pregnancy,” the doctor explained. It hadn’t shown up in any of the sonograms.I’d delivered Joshua via…

the very first first responder

“YOU NEED TO come back to the house. There’s been an accident.” Those were the last words I wanted to hear from the aide who was helping us take care of my 90-year-old mother. Not asking for details, I just tore back home.I had only been gone long enough to drive 10 minutes down our mountain road. Our home sat at the top, with panoramic views of mountains and lakes, which Mom loved. It was one of the reasons she finally agreed to live with us. She could hardly get around on her own these days, and when she did go out it took a lot of time and effort helping her in and out of the car. My biggest fear, though, was her taking a fall. Is that what…
