Prayer 141: Egypt makes me smile

Dear God

I really don’t know what You have against Egypt in the Bible. People either seem to be fleeing from it or in terrible danger when they go and live in it. Well, in my opinion, Egypt is a wonderful place with a fascinating history and a fantastic people, and it was a joy to visit it: one of my best holidays ever. As a result, whenever Egypt is mentioned in the Bible, I always smile with the good memories, which possibly isn’t the reaction I should be having in terms of its symbolic use! But, anyway, thank You for Egypt and the wonderful opportunities we have these days for travel.
