Reason: Flying to see my good friend in North Carolina
Thought in my head: I am going to die, I am going to die...
Today I have been challenged to tell about something that brought me great joy and here it is. Recently, I flew from Rhode Island to North Carolina to see my good friend. She is an amazing Army Wife carrying her third child while her husband is serving our country in Iraq. I just wanted to give her a hug and tell her that I love her and that I am proud of her. But, to do that, I had to get on a plane and that was REALLY hard for me. I told everybody how scared I was, strangers and friends alike. Anyone who basically made eye contact with me heard my story, to the point that I was tired of hearing about it.
And, as always, God came through for me in spades and put the nicest people around me on every single flight. So, I am filled with joy today that I conquered that fear and looked it in the face and didn't let that fear control me and my life anymore. We are even planning our next flight for next summer. I can't believe it.....
He is a gracious God and He is my Friend.
