Marooned Without a Compass Day is celebrated on November 6th of each year.
Being marooned is not the best thing in the world that could happen to anyone. According to Merriam Webster, to be marooned is to be put ashore on a desolate island or coast and leave to one’s fate OR to place or leave in isolation or without hope of ready escape. Pirates were known to do this to crew who disobeyed orders.
We can only imagine that Marooned Without a Compass Day came from the question most people will be asked at least once in their life. “If you were lost on a desert island, what would you want with you?” This question has numerous variations, you can only select one item, you can select three items, or it can only be a person.
Go ahead and celebrate by asking all your friends what they would do if they were marooned without a compass.
As for me, it’s interesting…I thought about this…my Bible…I would want that with me…not a compass, I wouldn’t have a place to go on a desert island. Duh. There are so many people I’d want with me, but the ONE person that I KNOW would be there is my God…
Someone asked me about Him last week…it caused me over the past several days to re-think about God, Jesus, Savior, whatever you choose to call Him. It’s a good practice to re-think or re-evaluate your God on occasion and your relationship with Him. Good stuff, if you haven’t done that in a while…try it, sometime you’ll have to make some changes though…doesn’t mean your a bad person or doing bad things, just means you got a little of course and need to make a change here or there.
Be blessed today!
