In the 1990’s a television game show for children, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? was aired on PBS. The fictional character, Carmen, was the leader of a group of criminals that stole world treasures. The object of the game was to use geographical clues, find the gang, spoil their plans of thievery and ultimately capture Carmen. This franchise was so popular, it included games, books, comics, costumes and a host of other things. My Trusted Assistant, oldest daughter remembers playing the computer game in school.
What does this have to do with me? Inquiring minds want to know. For those inquisitive thinkers, I will be traveling during the next two weeks, visiting a few places. I agreed with the Holy Spirit that it would be fun to share my travels in a fun way in my own way. So, for our entertainment, let’s play Where in the World is Always a First Lady?
The Rules of the Game
During my travels over the next eleven days and multiple destinations, I will post pictures and clues on the Always a First Lady Facebook page of my various locations. The first person to guess and post on the page the most correct places on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, will receive a gift. The gift is my devotional EmpowerMoments for the Everyday Woman: a 31-Day Journey to Empower Your Womanhood. This will be a welcomed treasure to your arsenal for warfare against the enemy. This anthology of twenty-six African American women’s trials and triumphs will empower you to be empowered.
Unlike Carmen and her gang, I am not a thief, but I am a nightmare for satan. This thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, he hates me, but I hate him more. When I resist him, he runs with terror. Although it may look like I am alone, do not be deceived and do not make any sudden moves. I do have a gang, an innumerable company of angels surrounding me with firepower from the Almighty God.
During the credits at the end of the show, this announcement is made: Carmen’s gang is bankrolled by the Public Broadcasting Service and viewers like you. FYI, I am financed by Father God. He is my source and resource. And since my Man of God is in heaven, I am a widow and the Creator of the universe is my husband.

Let the game begin.
