Our CIA Encounter
by Sonia Brown

 “Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.” (Proverbs 4:15)

            It was a memorial day in the historic city of Washington, D.C. My husband, Tom, and I were touring some of the great sites. We had already visited places like the White House (amazingly small), The U.S. Capitol, U. S. Supreme Court, Arlington Cemetery, Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, Kennedy Center, Washington Monument, and the different National Museums. We even ate at some of the recommended restaurants and enjoyed a variety of cuisines. We were having the time of our lives.

            That day we decided to take a drive to eighteenth-century plantation of our favorite president, George Washington. It was a remarkable home. I was surprised with all of the acres that he possessed. It was a vast piece of land. We also viewed the Potomac River from his mansion. Simply stunning.

            The vacation was quickly coming to an end. We finished the momentous day and headed home to our hotel when my “dearly beloved” husband got lost. We were on the freeway and like any reasonable wife I told him to pull to the side and look over the map. Kindly ignoring me he kept driving until he became aware of things he didn’t remember seeing.

             I was admiring the scenery and noticed an exit sign that read, “Central Intelligence Agency”.

            Tom said, “Hey, if anyone can tell us how to get back to our hotel it would be the CIA”.

            I remarked, “You’re crazy! Just pull over and read the map.”

            He pulled over alright…right in front of the CIA’s security gate! There were armed guards with machine guns and watch dogs.

            Tom took out the map nonchalantly and began to read it when I nervously brought to his attention. “Tom, Tom, Tom! There are men with guns running towards us. Please let’s get out of here!”

            He looked up…shocked! Flung his map in the back seat and quickly spun off. I could only imagine what they must have thought about us in front of their gate looking over a map!

            Sometimes we get lost in life. Other things or people distract us from where we really should be. We lose our direction and forget the path in which God has called us to travel. We lose site and find ourselves in a heap of trouble.  

            Don’t hang around those who are always causing mischief. Take sin seriously. God’s word says to avoid the path of the wicked at all cost.

            The CIA took their job seriously even though we didn’t. I highly respect them for that but I also learned on that gripping day to avoid not only the path of the wicked but to avoid the gate of the CIA.
