Dear Girl Who Prayed For Us After Our Session (I am sorry I don't know your name),
Thank you so much for following God's lead and coming up to pray for our travels after our session at Hearts at Home. You said that you felt led to pray specifically for traveling mercies-- and yet you couldn't have known what awaited us as we flew the less than friendly skies yesterday. Suffice it to say we left our hotel room at 10am and returned home at 8pm.
But the truth is, it could have been much worse. Delayed planes, cancelled flights, and missed connections all resulted in some pretty desperate moments in the Atlanta airport as we were told that we couldn't make it home last night and would have to fly home in the morning. The kind Delta employee who tried to help us took pity on us and told us to go at least stand in line for the last available flight out for the evening. Though it was showing full, she said, she had high hopes we could make it.
When we got to the gate where that flight was, the hundreds of people milling around waiting for a chance to get on that same flight was daunting. We met another couple who were in the same boat and agreed to split a rental car if we had to to drive home. Imagine our surprise when the tv screen listing the standby list showed, miraculously, our names as first on the standby list! We went from hopeless and panicked to elated. We were going to make it out of there!! (Our new friends were second on the list-- what are the odds?)
It wasn't until we were on the plane flying back that Curt smiled and turned to me. "Remember what that girl came up and prayed for you about?" he asked. "She prayed for our travels... and we were first on the standby list with no explanation as to how we got that spot." I admit that I forgot all about what you had prayed as we stood there stressed out. Thank you for being obedient to what God prompted you to do. Because of your prayers, I am convinced, I am typing this blog post from the comfort of my home, instead of spending another night away from it.
