Your Upgrade is Now Confirmed, stated the email Subject Line.

What a pleasant surprise!

As I headed toward the airport I thought how nice it will be to be on row 4 in First Class; fresh hot coffee served in a ceramic cup or a glass of orange juice while others board.

Imagine my surprise as I handed my phone with ticket app to the gate attendant and hearing…”Sorry First Class has checked in full.”

FYI…my upgrade is for the return flight.


So here I sit on row 39 and thankful I’m in a window seat and not the dreaded middle. I always wonder…do they get both armrests since they are squished?

One of the secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others. -Levi Strauss

My job today is silence. My row mates have arrived and have immediately fallen asleep. (Those of you that personally know me are probably wondering how in the world will I accomplish that!)

I may not have received an upgrade from the airlines, but one thing I know for sure…in God’s plan for my life…

God has provided me my upgrade…

U ~ Unconditional Love
P ~ Peace
G ~ Grace
R ~ Redemption
A ~ Assurance
D ~ Deliverance
E ~ Eternal Life

As I type this sentence we’ve taken off and I’m reminded how blessed I am and how thankful I am to be seating here (even if my legs are folded into a pretzel)..I have a great job which is why I’m on a plane, the best husband, wonderful family and friends. And best of all the love of Christ.

May you too be blessed and may we..

Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. (Psalms 47:6, 7 KJV)


Blessings, Susan
