Recently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. These days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the delicious food of which they became famous.

suspenders, don't you?" 

With a distant disdain in his voice he simply said, "Sir, you will have
to remove your suspenders." 

By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did not have the
foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentleman's suspenders. I wear 
suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable and serve a vital 
purpose for me. 

I looked at him and said, "Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction?"


"Sir," he said in a practiced monotone, "you will have to remove your
suspenders." 

I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the
airplane, I would need to go through this archway. 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! 

Sure, you can grab your trousers and pull them up but you still have to
live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers 
on the airplane. 

I am not sure which is worse. A bomb in your underwear, or, your
underwear on display. 

After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase, I noticed
several people pointing in my direction and laughing. Believe me, a 
wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of course it 
happens to someone else. 

Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture
dominated my thinking. 

"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.
