The Crooked Christmas Tree – I HAVE TO MAKE THAT PLANE
I HAVE TO MAKE THAT PLANE
I have a personal philosophy. I ask for what I want and I don’t take no for an answer. And usually I get what I need
Well this day that philosophy was going to be put to a major test. My tribe and I were trying to get to Canada for a wedding. We had planned but our best plans had fallen one passport short of being able to make our flight. Now I had passport in hand but there was only 45 minutes til my flight departed.
I got to the ticket counter
I saw the same lady that denied us the day before. And she denied me again.
Sir you are too late
Mam I must make that plane
Sir the check in closes an hour before departure.
Mam I must make that plane.
Mam I have to make that plane.
25 minutes before the flight departs
She stared at me for a moment
Then she said follow me
She led me to TSA.
She moved me to the front of the line
Walked me thru the metal detector
Then she looked at me and said You still won’t make that plane
10 minutes before departure
I looked at her determined “Mam you don’t understand my family is already at the gate and I will not miss this flight.
She stared at me
And then took out a Walkie talkie and said
HOLD THAT PLANE
She was not supposed to leave the counter or walk me thru TSA or hold the plane but my persistence would not let her be and because of that I made my flight
Don’t be discouraged by heavens silence. Don’t you dare give up
Don’t you dare stop praying
Continue to press the throne.
Jesus will grab his walkie talkie and Hold Your plane.
