If you're like me, your Instagram and Facebook feeds are now filled with photos of your friends' beautiful vacation destinations.
Here I am at home, while friends relax on the beaches of Hawaii, trek in the mountains of Switzerland, or explore the charming villages of Italy.
Is it just me, or do you also sometimes struggle with vacation envy?
Then it occurred to me how many folks must have struggled with envy as they watched the lucky folks who got to travel on the magnificent sailing ships of the last century. There was no Facebook or Instagram, but there were travel posters such as this one:
This poster doesn't even depict the largest ship in the White Star line. That one has become the most famous ocean liner in history: RMS Titanic. No doubt I would have been especially jealous of a friend who set sail in April 1912.
Lord, I pray that you rid my heart of envy.
