How are you doing? Well, I'm back, returned last week. Everything went relatively well with the funeral services for my Father. We traveled and came back home safely, Praise God. A few hiccups with our return and as usual God fixed it.
Upon our return:
1st: We missed our connecting flight as the screens were showing the wrong gate; Decided to ask an attendant after a while, who looked up the flight and told us the right gate number; after dashing across the airport we were told the flight just left and we needed to re-book. We dashed across the airport to find the re-booking station, when it was our turn, the Lady/travel arranger that helped us asked "Are you Christians?" We replied yes. She said you look like Christians and began sharing her personal testimonies with us. She was full of Praises for the Lord and we were blessed to Praise God with her. God blessed us that there was another connecting flight to our City in just a few hours and we were able get home that night. God is a Way Maker, Thank you Jesus!
2nd: The taxi driver talked about the Lord, unprompted my us, all the way to our destination and we had a blessed conversation. It is so refreshing to meet people who really love the God and are passionate about sharing the Lord and His goodness in their everyday lives.
After settling in, My mother asked me to get her medicine. That's when I realized that her handbag was missing. We searched and could not find it. Her handbag had her medication and our camera in it. I started feeling overwhelmed and grief stricken thinking about the memories on our camera of pictures several years old now; not to mention my mother's medication. I looked at the clock and It was after 2am in the morning. Called the cab company to see if her hand bag left in the cab; they called a cab driver but it was not the same one that took us home. I asked God to please have mercy and help us to recover the bag. I cried a bit and prayed with exhausted desperation and then decided to surrender and forced myself to sleep. I called the cab company again the next day and they were able to track down our cab driver and he found the handbag. Praise be to God for Ever and Ever!
3rd: The next morning, my mother was moving one of our vehicles out of the drive way and for some reason the door would/could not open with the remote OR the physical key (have you ever heard of a KEY not opening a door?) We tried and tried and nothing! I remembered that my cell plan has an emergency assistance and decided to call them to see if they did lock out assistance. They did and sent someone over right away. Even the man said he had never seen anything like that before, any way he did his thing and got the door open but the car would not start and the alarm started making NOISE non-stop. I called the dealer to report the problem and there was a re-call for this lock issue and we took it in to get it fixed at no cost to us. God did it Again....Praise Jehovah.
4th: Returned to work and was told there is a Big re-org taking place to be effective immediately. Staff was being moved and for some reason, I felt very calm. With all the hype, hallway conversations and speculations, my spirit was not troubled. After the official announcement at a staff meeting, I was told that I was staying put. God Is Faithful, His promises are true.
