Proverbs 4:23
"Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life."

I didn't think to look through his backpack. As usual, before we travel, he shovels in piles from his toy box to bring along. 

While making our way through security at the airport, I noticed they pulled his bag aside, and put it through the scanner multiple times. Concerned with what was inside, they put it on a table, opened it, and slowly sifted through the various toys he had packed.

They pulled a magical wand from his bag and inspected it as though it carried special powers. After discussing it with each other, they broke the news to us, that we could not take it with us. Made sense, safe travels is what we're looking for.

Before we try to go to sleep at night, it's important to walk through security. What thoughts are we carrying in the backpacks of our mind that could be damaging to us? We need to sift through what we have with us, and be willing to toss out what could cause us harm, stress, or anxiety.

We must be left with random toys, and cheerful thoughts that allow us to travel safely to sleep.
