Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. The archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once I was through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on the conveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several shrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction!

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world," (John 16:33 KJV). Whatever our tribulations might be, we can rest unabashed in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Tweet
