Okay, well maybe not a miracle but it was out of the ordinary. I think we have already established through months of writing this blog that I am–er–a little–I don’t know–er-ah–hasty–that’s the word.
The other day I was looking for something and ended up cleaning out my carry-on computer bag. I threw away the garbage that I collected on my last trip. Put the bag in the closet where it belongs.
This morning at 5:28, to be exact, I was thinking about asking some friends to go with us to FL in February when we use that free ticket I got on my last trip. FREE TICKET–I then remembered cleaning out the computer bag and throwing the ticket in the trash. Clearly written on the ticket are the words, “cannot be replaced if lost.” I said a short prayer about it and then it hit me it must still be in the trash or the Holy Spirit would not have given me the thought. I went back to sleep and this morning I casually mentioned to my man that I think I threw away his ticket. He, quick as a wink, jumped out of bed (I think he saw FL in the winter flying out of his future) and looked in my office trash–there it was. FL here we come.
Do you think God cares about stuff like that? Do you think the Holy Spirit really did give me that thought? I did pray about it. I have been doing my devotions faithfully lately, could that make a difference?
I asked my man to put that ticket in the safe and maybe he should just be in charge of everything. Oh I would hate that.
Here is your unhealthy but yummy recipe for Thursday–this is a nice treat for the holidays.
On a baking sheet, spread out: 1 sleeve of saltine crackers
In a small saucepan over medium-heat, melt:
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
Once the mixture is gooey, pour evenly over crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for five minutes, until bubbly. Remove from oven, and sprinkle on top: 2 cups chocolate chips
As the chocolate melts, spread it evenly around. Pop into the refrigerator until set, then cut apart the candy and put into gift containers.
I might recommend you double or triple this recipe if you’re planning on giving any away as gifts. Judging by how quickly it went at our home, you might not have any left for gifts if you only make one batch!
