It was about a year ago now that five of us friends from here, flew to Las Vegas to meet a friend who now lives in Arizona. It was for an extended weekend of just touring the sights and sounds of the area, and hanging out and being together.
In light of the shooting there a couple of weeks ago, would I go again? You bet! It was safe then and it is probably safer today. The one dangerous person in the midst of hundreds of thousands, is now gone!
The Psalm writer in chapter 91 says, "This I declare that He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I am trusting Him. For He rescues you from every trap, and protects you from the fatal plague. He will shield you with His wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor. Now you don't need to be afraid of the dark any more, nor fear the dangers of the day, nor dread the plagues of darkness, nor disasters in the morning. (verses 4 - 6).
