Now, for those of you who live in Canada, you know what the Cabot Trail is, but for my American friends, it is a scenic route driven up over the highlands of Cape Breton Island which is part of Nova Scotia, and it is particularly beautiful in the Autumn. It is a very popular drive for tourists and honeymooners.
Anyway, to get back to my story, we had pulled into this motel and asked for a room. When we walked into the room, there were hundreds of flies gathered into the corners of the room. Needless to say, we were quite uncomfortable with that and asked for another room. The clerk informed us that there were none available!
We never did get to go around the Cabot Trail!
One other time, we were preparing to move into the home of a friend of ours who was living off Island. Our friend had neglected to clean it up for us before the move and I was shocked to find dead insects and a disturbing amount of mouse evidence everywhere; and I mean everywhere! It was so bad that my friend who had accompanied me to help me get the place in order before our moving date, flat out refused to come back and help me clean it! Apparently it was too much for her to stomach! I didn't blame her; it was pretty bad! So, I got to do it all by myself, which brings me to the devotional that I am about to share with you!
Bill Crowder has done a splendid job putting my thoughts into words on the subject!
