A Heartfelt Surprise


My brother is celebrating his 60th on February 17, 2022! It is a milestone because most of our paternal uncles didn't do well after they turn 50.


On January 29, my sister called to say that restrictions in the Philippines were lifted, and it would be easier to go to Manila to surprise our brother. Still, with high Covid numbers, it was not very enticing.


Deep inside my heart I was hoping that God would help me decide. I called the travel agent. She quoted me a fare that was unusually high during a low season. Understandably because it was less than three weeks before our planned departure. And then she saw a special fare - just adding $300 would upgrade us to the next flight category! An unheard of deal! We booked our flight. I felt that God may be nudging us to fly.


Then it occurred to me that in the almost thirty years we have been married, I do not remember having celebrated Valentine's Day. Maybe this is God's way of surprising us with a wonderful combination of Valentine's Day and my brother's special occasion. Our departure is February 14.


Have you felt God's nudge in your life lately?
