God's Protection...Amazing!

The other night, I finished folding laundry and was about to go upstairs when I had this feeling that I needed to check the sun room door. I turned around and smelled something strange. It smelled like burnt popcorn. I looked in the trash can, I looked in the bathroom and didn't see anything. Then I went over to the stove top (we have a second kitchen in the basement with an old stove top that has a pilot light on the counter) and I saw that one of the kids put a cardboard box on top of the stove!!! I took it off and it already had burn marks on the bottom!!! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry!!! God's protection and leading that night was so overwhelming to me. God's love never ceases to amaze me! Thank You Lord, to You be the Glory!

We had something similar happen once, though it was a bit more complicated, involving Josh and I staying up too late and discovering a shipment of crickets for our pet lizard on our porch at 1:00am. We keep the crickets in the basement, which led us to discover the carbon monoxide building up in our house and blowing through the heating vents into the kids bedrooms before it had a chance to hurt anybody. It was so obviously God watching out for us!
