Talk about a thankless job: There’s no Hallmark card for guardian angels. Even worse, many don’t even believe they exist in spite of their prominent roles in both the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament. When was the last time you thought about them, much less thanked them?
Not that I was all that happy to learn of them as a child. While Jesus was present wherever two or more were gathered in His name, alone I could spend a little extra “me time” in the bathroom pursuing the sins of adolescent boys. Then my Sunday School teacher informed us that every soul was assigned a guardian angel at birth. As a result, we were never truly alone.
