My 3rd oldest daughter is supposed to be on her way to Alaska right now, in fact just about there. Instead she's (hopefully) in or about in Seattle. Her first flight was delayed due to some un-badged persons loading bags onto a plane at the Philadelphia airport. When she finally did get into Philadelphia, she - along with many other - had missed connecting flights. So....... she flew out to Seattle, and, after spending tonight in a hotel, will be flying on to Alaska.
Another example of how our lives don't always go as planned! But now she'll be able to say she's been in Seattle (I would like to go there)! And hopefully the rest of her journey will go as expected.
Samuel certainly wasn't planned. At my age and already having 10 children, we figured we were through. But God had a different plan, and I am so completely thankful that He did.
A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
