We arrived at Los Angeles Airport (LAX) just before midnight on Christmas Eve. Our family, eight of us, were so excited to spend Christmas Day at Disneyland and capture our grand kids first visit to the ‘Happiest Place on Earth.’
We gathered our luggage and went outside to rendezvous with the shuttle van I had arranged to take us to our Anaheim hotel. It was Christmas Eve or now it was actually Christmas Day. LAX is the 6th busiest airport in the world with approximately 64 million passengers reported in 2012. Although, on this day and at this time it started to feel like ‘Escape from LA.’ The song was starting to ring in my ears, ‘It was the night before Christmas, not a creature was stirring, not even our…….VAN!’
I had coordinated with the attendant of the shuttle service and he punched something into his tablet…..then I looked again…..he had vanished. I started waving down other shuttle vans, some stopped, some stepped on it. When I spoke with some of the drivers, they just looked at me like a ‘reindeer in headlights.’ There were no answers given as to where our van was…..and it became quieter….. not a creature was stirring not even a mouse….LAX was silent.
The drivers I did talk to said, ‘better get a cab.’ Where? There were no cabs! We prayed. We needed a miracle.
An hour later, our miracle arrived! Out of the blue. A person who had no religious view of Christmas. He was our miracle, on this Christmas Eve.
I realize in the big scope of things this may not be considered a massive miracle. For me and my family, at this time with young kids on Christmas Eve at LAX, it was our miracle. We were full of gratitude and thanks.
Everyone is significant and your need/miracle is always important to God.
My friends at Eastgate and I would love to stand in agreement for your miracle. Drop us a line if you would like so we can pray specifically for you.
