An Angel Spoke To Me Today!


by Reb Gutman Locks @ Mystical Paths

It was a really rushed day today. It is my laundry day – two loads of wash-and my day to wash the floors for Shabbos. I also had to go to the post office to mail out some books, go to a bris (circumcision), do the shopping for Shabbos, and teach two classes. I figured I would save some time and sayTehillim (Psalms) while I was waiting for the bris.

     I got half way through the Psalms that I am used to saying, and the bris started, so I put the sefer (book) down, thinking to finish when I returned to my apartment. As things usually go, I forgot, and ran through my day without finishing the Psalms.

     After helping with tefillin, --it was really busy-- I sat down to wait for maariv (evening prayers). There was an older, religious guy sitting close to me whom I have seen many times over the years, but we have never spoken, not one word.

    He looked over at me and said, “Do you read Psalms? Why don’t you read Psalms?”

    “I already said them today,” I told him. And then I remembered. I looked at him and said, “You are an angel sent from Hashem!” I quickly grabbed asefer Tehillim (book of Psalms) and finished the half that I had forgotten to say.

    It makes you feel so good when you see Hashem’s help in such a way.

    What is the real point of this story? G-d is always helping all of us to attain our holy goals. But if we do not pay attention, we will not even notice.


  1. i thought that perhaps there's another important lesson, maybe more important:

    you need to have holy goals so that HaShem can help you fulfill them.
