Greetings! Sure hope you’ve turned your air conditioning systems and fans on, full blast! As my little great granddaughter said: “Whewee! It sure was hot today!”

My heart was troubled this past week, regarding the young man that ventured into North Korea on his sight-seeing travels. How sad and tragic for him and his family.

This brought to mind some of my travels and ventures of South America, Israel, Syria and Italy. Several of us women on the trips, would decide to go sight-seeing without all the others in the group.

We would get to shopping and seeing such amazing sights, that we would forget about the rest of the group on our bus. When in Israel, we decided to cross over into Damascus, Syria, without informing our tour guide of the rest of the group!

Gee, now forty-years after that trip, hind-sight is looked at very differently. How foolish for us to take off without our guide and group! We did just fine with all of our group when touring through Italy, Israel, Jordan, and Lebanon, but hind-sight is more frightening than it was at that time of adventure!

I am sure that the young man that stepped over into North Korea, never gave his idea a second thought of any unknown danger. He was just interested and wanted to see all that he could while on the trip.

But, Folks, isn’t that how we are, just wanting to see all that we can when on a trip? As we travel down the road of life, we are on a daily trip, unaware of the pitfalls that may be lurking just around the corner or bend in the road.

That is how it is with our spiritual life, too. That old sneaky, sly devil is waiting in the shadows of life, ready to offer us another path to travel. Therefore, we have to keep our head up, eyes wide-open, and spend time in prayer and reading the Bible, in order to keep the enemy away from our heart, mind and soul. Have a great week, stay prayed-up and be alert!
