The boarding pass had been printed, the bags were packed, the
alarm was set and we were fast asleep. Suddenly my cell phone
rang at 1AM, not once but twice,-- so I turned the phone off and went back
to sleep. At 5AM I checked the messages. Our flight out of DC had
been canceled. No explanation, no “I’m sorry,” only a thank you for
choosing United. Hmmm. Wide awake by now we called United and
waited 30 minutes for a person to pick up. I had been rescheduled
for the same flight on Sunday only now I was seated in the very last row.
I tried to get something going out today to no avail then asked if something
could be done about the seat. Immediately I was placed in the front of
the coach section on both flights. Thank you, Papa!
So, what to do with a whole unplanned day? We started with breakfast
out at 7AM, then visited a couple of garden shops for replacement plants for
the garden; came home and planted the new flowers. The heat has
broken and so has the humidity. It is a gorgeous day and I am grateful
to God for His plans and for the grace to roll with them. I am so full
of joy as I wait to see what He has planned for me-- tomorrow.
