Today’s teenagers love a remix. A remix, as I understand it, is a favorite song, put through an electronic wringer. On the other side of the electronic wringer, the artist, or another artist adds another twist. Most teenagers would not know what a “wringer” is, but I do not know what the proper name for the electronic equipment they use to cause distortion in the original song.
Last week I wrote a post about the miracle of my daughter, and this Thursday my daughter and I experienced a small miracle. I just want to extol the faithfulness of our Father in the smallest things. He is always faithful and always interested in us. This is an amazing thought.
“ Can a mother forget her nursing child?
Can she feel no love for the child she has borne?
But even if that were possible,
I would not forget you!
See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.” Isaiah 49:15,16 NIV
I am a last minute person. I have been told time and time again, that I time it too close. This is something I need to work on. Although, I have flown many, many times, until Thursday, I had never missed a flight. I have been close, but I have never missed a flight.
My sister had purchased tickets for my 2 daughters, (Cerise and Haruka, who is our Japanese exchange student daughter for this year), to go with her to her son’s graduation from boot camp in San Diego, CA. My sister was flying in from San Antonio, TX to Dallas – Fort Worth International Airport, and the girls were going to fly with her to San Diego. We left the house 2 and one-half hours before the flight and DFW Airport is about 45 minutes from our house. I was very happy to have all this EXTRA TIME.
We made a stop, to pick up my daughter’s phone and there was a long line. There was all kinds of construction I was unaware of, on the North entrance to the airport. With the construction, I missed the turn and we had to backtrack. We were misinformed about the gate, so I dropped the girls off 50 minutes before their flight, but about a half mile from their gate. The girls missed their flight and we were told that they could fly stand by, but all flights to San Diego were oversold, and they most likely would not be able to fly out until the next day. My nephew’s graduation began at 8:00 am the following morning.
The next flight out had only one standby ticket available. My daughters gave it up to a young lady who was going home to be with her mother in the hospital. My daughter and I began to pray. Remembering what I had just written, about a miracle. I began to ask, “Lord Jesus, we need a miracle to get these girls on a flight, before tomorrow. What is my $300.00 part in this? How can I step out in faith?”
I went to the ticket counter and asked for the supervisor. I waited 2 hours to speak with him. I was not impatient, I was in prayer the entire time. The next flight out was not until 6:30 p.m., so I had the time. I was not going anywhere.
When the supervisor came out, he told me that he had looked everywhere and there was no way the girls would get to San Diego, CA until the next day, after the graduation ceremony had taken place. I explained that it would be too late, could he possibly refund my sister’s money. I waited peacefully, in prayer, while he keyed and keyed on the computer. After about 15 minutes, he said, “I have both girls on a guaranteed flight at 7:30 p.m. tonight!” A small miracle, but very important to my sister, my daughters and my nephew.
