Last week, my friends and I were invited to go to a movie about human sex trafficking of minors at a special evening event at the Phoenix Zoo. Proceeds from that event would help one of my favorite non-profits, StreetlightUSA. I heard that Senator John McCain’s wife, Cindy McCain, would be there.
I wanted to attend with my friends who have been working with me to put on another event, Gala Night for StreetlightUSA. I also wanted to be there because it would be an honor to meet Cindy McCain. I admire her dedication to working on this issue for so many years.
But, alas, I couldn’t go because it was on the same night and time as a computer class I am taking at Chandler/Gilbert Community College. I was so disappointed. During class that night, as I was studying Microsoft Office applications, my friends were posting fun pictures of themselves at the zoo with Cindy McCain. I wished I could be there, too.
God could see into my heart, and He had a special surprise for me a few days later.
