Knowing the juggling act I had performed making arrangements for myself, my family, and those that depend on me - I became angry. I sulked, I spouted off negative comments, and I was frustrated at the situation. Yes, not traveling would be more convenient for me, but I prefer my life organized, so I was bitter.
Today, in the ladies restroom at church, a wise woman that has taken special interest in my life asked about the upcoming chaos of the travel I had been preparing for - as I explained that everything had been cancelled and I was unsure when or if it would be scheduled - she could hear the frustration in my voice (it was still there). She said "Ya know, God has a better appointment for you this week, you just watch and see".
I have no clue what God has in store for me this week, but those words were a sweet reminder that he is still in control of my life work trip or not.
