When I prayed or even just worried about this I felt that everything would be fine. It didn't make sense to me, but I did a better than usual job of trusting and being calm. My son seemed to be handling it well, too. He texted that he had met someone he knew and was visiting with him for awhile. He considered that a blessing.
Early this morning we found out that his flight was cancelled. We researched flights and texted him. When we finally connected he was booked on a flight south to connect with another one north to Milwaukee. Ha!! No trip to Chicago for us (phew). He was with a college student from our Milwaukee ward (congregation), a fine young man who is very "with-it". They had connected and I think Bob (not his real name) had made the new arrangements. We will pick him up early this evening 15" from our home as long as there isn't another delay due to more snow. Now I think that is a miracle! My family has been very blessed.
The scripture below was part of my scheduled reading for today from the Book of Mormon. I could not help but see how the Lord has done something similar for my son on a much smaller scale. He has been delivered from a different sort of bondage and strengthened in the process. These things really do happen!
Mosiah 24: And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to them in their afflictions, saying: Lift up your heads and be of good comfort, for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me; and I will covenant with my people and deliver them out of bondage.
