What was going on?
I had the idea that I should check my schedule (I'm in the midst of a radio tour)...and I was surprised that this idea filled my mind, because of course, I didn't have a radio show until 3 pm Pacific today.... there it was on my calendar, marked clearly in black and white.
The angels clamored louder.
It was then I looked and saw that the radio show I was due to be on at 3 pm. Pacific, was actually slated for at 12 pm Eastern... in other words, RIGHT NOW. I looked at my phone, and sure enough: five frantic calls from the producer, and there the phone was again buzzing and blaring.
He'd already been calling for five minutes.
I picked up, and the angels breathed a sign of collective relief. I'd gotten their message. And even though I felt like crying because I was LATE for a radio show... I decided to laugh instead. I'd made it. Nick of time... but present. Five minutes delayed...but fully ready to participate. And there waiting for me, meeting me with grace and kindness and support, was Lisa Jesswein of Empower Radio.
It was a fantastic show. And also, a really good lesson.
Sometimes.... we get our time zones mixed up. Sometimes, the most careful checking of details amount to nothing, and the angels have to arrive en masse to alert us as to what we're supposed to REALLY be doing. Sometimes, we make massive mistakes—and yet we are STILL met with grace by collective soul, by the person on the other end, saying "no big deal," or "it's all good" or "let's move forward."
