I was wakened at 1:15 and became aware of a gaseous odor. I got up to check it out and found a kitchen stove gas knob on. That was a lot of gas that filled the house from the stove to my bed! I apparently had accidentally turned the pilot on when I washed the stove at about 10:00 or so. Join me with a special shout out to Jesus for waking me. Would have been so easy to have gone to eternal sleep instead!
Psalm (121:3) “He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber not sleep.”
Remember the childhood prayer? “Now I lay be down to sleep, I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to keep, And if I die before I wake, I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to take.” May be that that is a good prayer for all ages.
