Waste-Free lunch tips

A Waste-Free Lunch (REUSABLE)
-sandwiches and other main dishes, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and treats in a reusable lunch container
-cloth napkins
-stainless-steel forks and spoons

a middle of the night miracle.

When I crawled into bed late last night, very tired, I asked my hubby to grab me a bottle of water. He went to the kitchen and made himself a protein shake. I hadn't noticed he forgot to bring me my water since I fell asleep before he even came back to bed.

I was jolted awake at 3 am, and went for my water bottle. I turned over, not taking into consideration the ungodly hour, and the rudeness of my waking my hubby just to nag him for forgetting my water. He crawled out of bed in his half asleep state, and went to the kitchen.

Turns out, the stove element was on full blast, glowing bright orange, and heating up our kitchen! When hubby came back to bed and told me, we spent the next few minutes trying to figure out how on earth that could've happened, since neither one of us used the stove. My mind was racing, and I even had the scary thought that my daughter, who has been known to sleep-walk, actually turned it on in her sleep!

Upon much thought, it was realized that when my hubby was making his shake, he dropped the big tub of protein stored above the stove. It must have hit the dial and turned the element on!
I was amazed, that God actually woke me up, to tell my hubby to go to the kitchen! That could've started a fire!

So, in these days of struggle, doubt, hardship and trial, I was reminded in a very powerful way, that my God still looks after me, even in my spiritual state of 3am, feeling numb and half-asleep.
