This morning I was in my stretching/exercise class. At the end of each session, the instructor has us sit in a circle, tell about our experience in class, and then she shares a word for the day.
My report this morning: “I have zero idea what my body did because my mind was racing about 150 mph on the Sasha Project!” The rest of the ladies gave more normal reports.
Right at the end, the “Nudging” said, “Go home and book Sasha’s flight!” Huh? Again, I sensed, “Go Book Sasha’s flight!” My Engineering / German background argued: “The Embassy websites advises NOT to make travel arrangements because VISAs are not guaranteed”. “No. This is NOT logical”. The Nudging persisted again.
Within two minutes of that argument, the instructor said, “Today’s Message is FAITH. ACT on Faith!” I burst out laughing and the other ladies wondered why? I told them about how I had just been wrestling. That gave me the opportunity to share about the Sasha Project! The ladies all said they would all be adding their prayers to this project. The Goodwill is Blossoming!
I went home to book Sasha’s flight. I had only a few moments because someone was expected at my house. I was frantically working when my guest called to say she would be delayed by an hour! Thank You Angels.
I did a search for flights. My “ideal flight” would have Sasha flying in Sunday afternoon (thus avoiding downtown LA traffic) to join our family for a Father’s Day dinner. The return flight would be after work hours on the planned Thursday in July,
I searched for flights from Moscow to LAX using my Frequent Flyer Miles. Search #1 had ZERO results. Search #2 had ZERO results. I was getting discouraged. I told the Angels that THEY were the ones who told me to do this. What were they thinking?
Attempt #3: Arrival flight 1:40 Sunday afternoon, Departure 9:10 pm on a Thursday evening five weeks later. I could not believe it! And get this -- the arrival flight had one seat using only half the Frequent Flyer miles I was expecting!!! Talk about AWESOME!!!!
I have booked the tickets, paid the various airport taxes, and have the Confirmation number!!!! “ACT on FAITH!”
I can’t wait for Sasha to wake up and read this posting. He will probably think he is dreaming…
