And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

God's Hand!!!

Well, day 1 is complete and I'll post an update on that soon.  However, just want you to know how we truly saw the Lord's hand in everything yesterday:

1.  We were late getting to my uncle's house (he was taking us to the airport & letting us park at his house).  He called and offered to just meet us at the airport and drive B's truck back to his house!  WOW!  That saved us considerable time so that we didn't miss our flight.

2.  When we got to our gate, the flight was delayed.  So, that gave us a few more minutes to collect ourselves.  Then, the flight attendant started getting upset about my cooler that he couldn't store it on the flight (this is something they are always precious about doing...).  Anyway, he said that if he stored that, we could take any of our carry-ons with us and they had to be checked all the way to Rochester.  Those contained items we couldn't part with either (i.e., meds, gram scale, computer with all of my meal plans, etc.) if it didn't get transferred or if the flight was delayed!

Another gentleman, on our flight, overheard this and allowed his carry-on to be checked so that we didn't have to worry about checking ours!!!!  What a blessing!

3. Since our flight from the Big D was so delayed, we only had about 15 minutes before the flight to Rochester left (this was the last flight out for the night).  So, we would be stuck in Chicago with all of our stuff waiting in Rochester.  So, B rushed to the gate to hold the plane and the sweet lady at the airport booked it with the wheelchair.  When we arrived, we found that the pilot was late and so the flight was delayed!!

4.  We arrived at our hotel (we had to go with the only hotel that we could find with a full kitchen since we have to prepare all of my meals) and it was scary...when I called the front desk to tell the lady what we found in the room, she agreed it was gross...we started calling around and found another hotel (more expensive, but they had a full kitchen).  The hotel we were at gave us a ride to the new hotel!  How sweet is that?  When we arrived at the new hotel, we found that it is attached to the Mayo Clinic.  So, B is able to just push me in the wheelchair over to the clinic!!!

So, just had to share a few ways that we saw the Lord at work yesterday!!

We'll post an update soon on today, but we've got to eat some dinner!

Thank you all for your prayers!!!
