Greetings from Tampa. Today I return to the frozen northland known as Kansas. I am glad to report, however, that it seems neither of my flights have been canceled. So I shouldn’t run into any delays (supposedly; of course, things just happen at times).

It’s been a very good trip, and I’ve gotten a lot done, but it will be nice to get home.

It’s nice to know that God always knows what He’s doing. The verse today is 1 Corinthians 2:9.

9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,

   “No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
      and no mind has imagined
   what God has prepared
      for those who love him.”

This is a Judgement House verse. Some of you Tour Guides probably recognize it as you never forget the Tour Guide Script no matter how long it’s been since you did it.

Not only does God always know what He’s doing, but He always does better and more than you expect. Granted, you don’t always figure out what He’s done for you until years afterward, but you can count on the fact that God is always in the background weaving the story of your life together with His plans into an incredible adventure.

If you think of it, say a prayer for me as I travel back to Wichita today. I’d desperately like not to have to spend the night in the Houston airport, but I have enough with me that I will be fine if I need to.

Also, for those of you who have been praying for my family concerning my Grandma Bea, I wanted to let you know that she passed away yesterday evening. Thank you for your prayers and please keep them coming as the next few months are likely to be pretty stressful.

Much love to you all.
