God's plan not Wendy's!

Yesterday (April 14) we packed up the car and headed to the airport to leave for our trip. We got through security just fine and waited to board the plane. We taxied to the runway and then were told that we had to wait. Storms in New York were so bad that we couldn't take off to get there. We were told we would wait an hour. After that the pilot told us that New York was now over 2 hours behind in landing order so we had to go back to the airport and get off the plane. We realized that we would not make our connection in New York. So once off the plane we got in line to talk to the agent and make new plans. This ended up taking another 2 hours (I could NOT work at the airport!).

While doing all this we met a couple and their friend who were traveling to the same place we are (some of you know where but for this blog update I will not be saying specifics). The wife was in a wheelchair and has cancer. Before we left to come home Brian asked if we could pray for her. We circled around her and prayed for healing in Jesus' name. Can I just tell how humbled I felt at that moment. About 30 minutes before that I was upset because our 11 day trip was now going to be cut to 6 days and then God smacked me up side the head. He let me see that He is TOTALLY in control of my plans whether I know realize it or not. You see...our trip was supposed to be Monday April 13 to April 23. Two weeks ago Delta called us to let us know that the 2nd leg of our trip was cancelled so we could either get a refund or change our fly out date. So two weeks ago God changed the day to Tuesday April 14th. Then we get delayed in Raleigh and met people from the country we are traveling to (we would not have talked unless stuck)and then we get to pray for them. We have been invited to their house once we are in country.

So...tomorrow we start ...wait the trip has already started. We go back to the airport and see what God has in store for us. Please pray for us to be obedient in whatever happens. Pray that I will keep my critical spirit at home (or actually get rid of it totally!).

I will update this if possible. There is internet access just not sure if I'll get to be on it much. We come back the 25th so we did get to add 2 more days to our trip which is great.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers. We need them!!!
