Some years back, I missed a connecting flight and got stuck in Cleveland.

Oh, the humanity!

Yeah, I know, the city has spruced up a lot, but back then…

Anyway, the result was an unplanned four hour layover.  I could have bought a paperback. Or just sat and watched the slo-mo ballet of jets on the tarmac. But for some reason, when I prayed about it, I sensed God telling me to take the shuttle into the city.

“Are You sure, God?” I asked, “I mean, this is Cleveland.” 

When I arrived, I almost immediately spotted a depressed looking guy in an “Information” 800px-TERMINAL_TOWER,_OVERLOOKING_THE_PUBLIC_SQUARE,_DOMINATES_THE_CLEVELAND_SKYLINE_-_NARA_-_550198booth. So I walked over and said, “I’ve got four hours to kill. What is there to do?”

“Nothing,” he replied, “this is Cleveland.” (I’m not making this up.)

I told you, God! I said in my head.

But then God said, “Tell him about Me.”

  1. Wise good sir. ^_^ I wonder if that information guy was at all surprised? Perhaps you turned around a life, perhaps you saved a soul. In Cleveland of all places! :0

    Wonderful post! 🙂
