A Lesson - Angel Stories

By: Rey Aranas

Location: Surprise City, Arizona, USA

This happened in the summer of 1971 in my home country, the Philippines. It was Sunday morning and I was all dressed up formally for church which was just in front of our house. When I opened the door I saw that our front lawn was so full of fallen black plum (a native fruit tree) fruits. Looking up, I saw hundreds of birds feasting on our plum tree. I decided right away that I did not want to share the fruits with the birds. Totally forgetting where I was supposed to go to, I removed my shirt, my socks and my shoes and climbed our tree. The best fruits were on top and that's where I went. I could see the roof of our two-storey house. Then I saw just in front of me a bunch of fruits that looked so delicious. I tried to reach out for it when all of a sudden I heard a loud crack. I knew the branch I was standing broke. In an instant I was falling down and the words I could utter was, "I'm dead!" I was very sure I would die because directly below me was our newly erected pointed bamboo fence. It felt like I was in a slow motion because it felt like I was falling slowly. Midway, I distinctly felt a cold blow of air on my left cheek pushing me far away. I fell into a canal ditch several feet away from the fence. I was so surprised because I felt NO PAIN. I stood up and walked unscathed and no broken bones. With mouth open, I stared at the branch where I was standing - it was hanging on a pointed edge of our bamboo fence.


The first and only thing that came to my mind until today was that I was saved by my guardian angel. It was meant as a lesson to me, a high school kid: Sunday, it is the Lord's Day. Keep it holy!
