It's been a crazy couple of weeks. Went from Asheville, North Carolina to Covington Virginia to Lexington Virginia to home to leave the next morning for Anaheim California to Costa Mesa California to fly home and leave 4 hours later for Massachusetts. All that to say don't hold what I'm about to write against me. I was tired.

With that disclaimer I'll tell you what happened. I got to bed about midnight in California after doing the TBN program, which you can watch here if you want. Just click on March 11! Anyway, I had to get up at 5 am to get to the airport. I got there, checked in and went through security. 20 feet later, I've lost my drivers license! Fortunately I've already gone through security. I searched everywhere. Went to
TSA and had them check the lines and the bins. No drivers license.
Unbelievable! I did this in 20 feet! I took every bag that I had apart 3 times, no license. I'm frustrated, but I'm through security so it's not that bad. Then it hits me. I get home at 8 PM and leave at 8 AM for Rhode Island. Without the drivers license I can't rent a car to drive to Massachusetts! Now I'm worried. I get on the flight in an hour and I'm trying to figure out what to do. I called the drivers
license division of Kentucky and left a message. No good! I called security at the Creation Museum to see if they had any contacts that could help. I've got to get on the flight in about 15 minutes now. Since the drivers license division doesn't call back I call again. This time I get a person and explain what's happened. Fortunately I know one of the police detectives so I could refer them to him so they
knew I wasn't pulling a scam. Finally the lady, just as I'm having to walk on the plane, tells me that if my wife comes over and brings my Passport, Birt Certificate etc. they'll issue me a new license. Awesome! They were a huge help. I call Masami and get on the plane. I arrive in Atlanta, flights delayed 6 hours! I don't get home until 1 AM. I have to get up at 5 AM to go to the airport! I come in the house and my wonderful wife has the new license for me! That's a good thing. As I take off my shoes, there, inside my shoe, is my drivers license. Somehow as I went through security in California I dropped the silly thing in there and in the rush to get out of the cattle line I put my shoes on and didn't see it. I didn't feel it either.

Needless to say I felt, and still feel, a little silly. All I know is, God is still good, all the time. Stay bold!

I didn't laugh at the time for sure! Once I knew I had the backup license it relieved the stress. When I got home and found the license I did laugh though. Thanks for being my "friend" Carol!

I couldn't quite laugh; I've gone through enough of those kinds of experiences myself, and remember the panic that rises and has to be constantly beaten back with "All things work together for good" or "In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God concerning you." But it is funny when you tell it.

LOL! That is the frenzy of travel these days! I am always so worried I have something in my pocket that will set off some beeper, or I am so busy making sure I keep track of my license, my watch, my phone, and laptop - not to mention jacket, coat, and shoes - I can barely remember who I am by the time I get all the little bins emptied. Glad you found the license, LOL!

Great story! I'm so glad you shared -- you gave me a good laugh. And yes, God is always good!
