We wake up at 8 when the phone rang and it is still super hot. Marty called the fix it people and they said they would be out later in the day, Big Score. Marty checked the fire as I checked my email and he discovers the fire has gone out. I cannot express the look of frustration he gave me over that. So we had two options, call Girl Scout leader Heidi to school us up on starting a fire or go back to bed. Guess which option we took.
So the fix it man showed up at 10 this morning, was here till 1 this afternoon and fixed everything. We have heat again. Praise God.
So this experience has me thinking. How on earth did people get fire before paper, matches, and or fuel of somekind? I'm sure it was nothing short of a miracle of God. Rubbing two sticks together would take forever! And who stumbled onto that whole concept anyway? Then you have to to have something that will start the burn like moss and sticks, but those burn up fast and the bigger pieces of wood take ages to start burning. I would need a mountain of moss, twigs, and small kindling just to get a few logs burning. Marty would have to be the one who rubs the sticks together.
Philippians 4:19 (NIV)
And my God will meet all your needs according To his glorious riches in Christ Jesus
Psalms 77:11 (NIV)
I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
