Wow! I can't believe it's been two weeks since I made my last blog post! Time has flown by!
We have a marathon month of birthdays that we've been celebrating/will be celebrating, and have been busy with all of these. It all kicked off with my mom's January 8th birthday, then Joy's on the 2nd of February, then my dad's on the 15th of February. Luke's is February 25th, followed by Colt's on March 4th. Whew! I'll be back to share some pics from Joy's party, but for now, I want to just share a Praise the Lord for our family!
Last Friday, I was sitting at the dining room table typing (taking dictation from Jason) over the phone, helping him with his paperwork. Joy was at the kitchen table finishing some of her school work, and Luke was in the living room watching Bob the Builder. I smelled something burning. Any other time, I would have naturally gone first to the kitchen, checking the stove and dishwasher, but this time, I immediately looked over into the living room. Evidently, Luke shifted one of our recliners over (out of its normal position) and pushed the back of the recliner to a recline position and the corner of it was right next to the wall gas heater and the back of the recliner was burning!
I don't know how much longer it would have taken for it to actually ignite into flames, but by this time, it had burned about a 2" square into the back of the recliner.
I am so thankful that God was watching over us! I know it was Him that urged me to look there first and I don't even like to think of how badly this could have turned out. I give God the credit and glory for His protection over our family! I do pray God's protection (Psalms 91) over our family daily. God is so good and I am so thankful that we are safe!
Praise the Lord! :)
