Traveling with the grace of God

After a busy summer, my family received a surprise invitation to go to Hawaii. My sister-in-law needed my wife’s help with a small business she was starting. It would be a working vacation for her, but one overlooking the Pacific Ocean from a high-rise condo. Of course, I was happy to go along to assist and carry the bags! 

We prepared carefully for the trip, packing simply, bringing just the tools we would need. For me, this included the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and a laptop computer—all of which made a compact but hefty carry-on bag. Our daughter, with our young granddaughter in tow, helpfully dropped us at the airport. But after they drove away, we started to check our bags at the curb and made an unhappy discovery: I did not have my wallet or picture ID. I was going nowhere, and the plane was leaving in a little over an hour. 

We'd love to hear from you!
