Devotions from Judy’s heart

While at Ann’s on Saturday I had a moment of intense gratefulness one noon.  I was mixing cookies and had just been melting some butter on the stove. There was soup warming up on one burner and someone had put a casserole dish on the back burner too. When I had finished mixing the butter and sugars for the cookies, I transferred the bowl to the adjacent counter.. All of a sudden there was a big explosion. The rice casserole dish exploded, sending glass all over the kitchen. Had I still been at the stove, I would have had glass in my face and maybe all over. Oh how thankful I was that I was right where I was at the time. I wonder if we know in even a small way, how often we are protected from harm. Afterwards I thought of the verse from one of my favorite Psalms, 37:7, “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”  All day long I was giving thanks!
