No, I have not gone on to the great beyond, I am still among the living, but there were moments when my one desire was for God to just take me home. For anyone living anywhere near the Wisconsin area, or for those watching the news with any given regularity, there is no need for me to go into detail about the goings on of the last few days. Yours truly was also caught up in the drama, the Milwaukee airport being closed for some twenty four hours, the airport I needed to get to in order to get home.
After learning patience on a very basic level for over thirty six hours, we were finally boarded, and allowed to travel home. It is in times of crisis that you see the true character of some people, and since I am an observer by nature, I noticed how some reacted differently than others when they were told there was no salvation in sight, and we would have to spend the night in an airport.
While few understood the circumstances, the fact that the Milwaukee airport was snowed in, there was a blizzard underway and it was not safe to fly, some abandoned reason altogether and simply started yelling that they wanted to go home, no longer regarding the fact that it was unsafe to travel, and even though it might be uncomfortable, the airport was their best alternative.
Not trying to spiritualize my predicament, but it is often the case that we, the children of God react in much the same fashion. We know something is not good for us, unsafe, even dangerous, and even though the Father patiently explains why we are not allowed to pursue a certain avenue, we wrinkle our brows and say, 'it doesn't matter, we still want to do what we want to do.'
Whatever it may be that God forbids or warns against, be certain that it is for your own best welfare, even though the flesh might rebel and demand that very thing.
I will post something more in accordance with this site sometime in the near future, but for now I have to brave the snows and winds, and go pick my little brother Daniel up from Chicago Airport. I do not know when I will be able to sit back down and pen a coherent message or teaching, but what I do know is that I appreciate your prayers, patience, and understanding.
With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.
