Without going into too much detail, imagine everything you have to do at an airport ticket counter and security, and then imagine it all going wrong. That was my day yesterday. I’ll leave it at that. Let’s just say that my mom and I are in Atlanta until tomorrow because of snow, that still has yet to appear. Our flight was canceled but we could have flown out.
I would like to say that I handled the situation at the ticket counter with grace and patience, but I did not. I was worried, I had anxiety and fear, and minimal amounts of faith. Part of writing this blog is to record our low points. I had one, and lesson learned. Why after all these years of going through this missionary stuff do I still lack faith? By the time God is teaching me all the lessons I need to learn I should have enough faith to move mountains! Thank you Lord for not giving up on me even though I fail.
Come to find out, God knows best ;-). Of course He does. I left Arizona exhausted from all of the packing and planning. Had I left for Belize today I would have been a rag of a person. Today, God is allowing me to rejuvenate and rest. Not only me but my mom and Evangeline as well. Before getting on the plane, my mom shoveled snow for three hours then drove another three hours to VA so she could get to me in Atlanta. Evangeline did not get her second nap and had a rough nights sleep, so today she is cranky and exhausted (napping now). THANK YOU LORD, FOR YOU KNOW BETTER THAN I AND FORGIVE ME FOR MY ATTITUDE!
So tomorrow, it’s off to Belize. Please continue to pray.
