After we visited Mom’s childhood places, we headed out of town. As we drove, we saw the flag of Mexico flying not too far from the interstate. Going along the interstate, we were amazed to see that Mexico was literally just right next to us–it was so clear by the stark contrast. The border was seen clearly by a large fence stretching for a long distance. We saw small, humble dwellings scattered across the hill, dirt roads, and more: showing the poverty that many live in.
May we never take for granted anything that we have. So many have so little. Speaking of another country, let’s look forward to our Heavenly Country!
“For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. . .Â But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city” (Hebrews 11:14, 15).
We are now in Las Cruces, parked for the night.
