The Hidden Wing

"Where are you headed?"

"Columbus."

"Columbus, Ohio?"

"No. Columbus, Georgia."

I had never been to Columbus, Georgia. In fact, I had never heard of it. Imagine my surprise when I learned that there was an airport there? 

In spite of my shock, I was so excited. There's nothing my God can not do  When I booked my flight from the West Coast back to the East Coast, I purposefully set myself up to fly into Columbus, Georgia.

After boarding at 10:40pm for an 11:00pm departure from San Francisco, we safely arrived in Atlanta as scheduled at 6:22am.  When I looked for my connecting flight, I saw that the status was listed as "At Gate."

I was having an internal panic attack. What exactly did that mean? Perhaps it meant there was an indeterminate delay. I walked up to the gate and looked out the window but didn't see anything and there was no attendant present. After taking a short walk to pull myself together, I returned to the gate. This time, I saw an attendant and was able to ask for clarification on the status. She smiled and informed me that the aircraft was already sitting there at the gate. Upon second glance, I saw the wing peeking out from behind the jet bridge. 



It's so easy for us to miss the little things in the midst of so many bigger things.  This was even evident in John 6:9, which reads, "There is a lad who had five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these for so many people?"

God can do much with little. Getting to this little city on this little aircraft will allow me to see my little girl dominant on the gymnastics floor.

Don't miss the little things God uses to bless your life!

March Madness - Day 5

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
