Always listen to God's promptings

I've had a very busy week.  I've been going to the chiropractor three times a week.  With the therapy also, the appointments are almost one and half hours long.  They have decided to total our car so we have until Saturday to buy a new car since we only have one car and the rental is due back Saturday.  Please pray the Lord provides a car that runs great and we like.  I would be happy if it was yellow also.
Since we have church on Thursdays, I had my husband drop me off first thing for my appointment this morning then walked home since my husband had the car at work.  It took me 50 minutes to walk home so I was not home until 11 today.  But I did enjoy the walk.
I have also been quilting the quilt.  It takes a long time to quilt a king size quilt on a home sewing machine.

I teach the kinder-care class at church.  2-6 year olds.  My class is pretty full, but we finally have enough teachers to split our class next week.  We have another class next to mine, 7-11 year olds.  Right after class started all the power in the children's building went out.  (we have three small  buildings) I went and got a couple of the men out of their class to fix the power in our building.  My children were very good when the lights went out.  I was very proud of them.    The men got the power back on.  Meanwhile I found my flashlight on my cell phone.  The lights went out again, so I decided to take the children into the foyer to have my class.  We have a conference table in there.  I grabbed the kids and my stuff and took them in there.  It's a good thing I have taught the children to walk in a straight line, it made it a lot easier.
We had been in our there about 30 minutes when one of the older children from the other class came running in there saying there was a fire in their class.  They got the men from their class who went running in there past my children.  I only had a couple of my kids get up, but they did a great job staying in their seats and not get caught up in the "chaos".  From what I gather there were sparks in the light but no real fire.  But can you imagine if I had not listened to the Lord's nudging and had to move almost 20 children out of there when the "fire" had started?  I praise God that no one was hurt.
I have several tutorials and recipes to share, I'll have more time next week to get the posts ready for ya'll.  Have a great day ya'll!

Missy, When the children came into class and yelled fire, we got up and started to run and all I could think about was my little man and how you would struggle to get so many little ones out in a hurry. It was such a blessing to me when we came into the foyer and saw all the little ones calmly working on their project and safe. I praise the Lord for you and the way you keep them in order!!

I'll second that. I was so concerned for my three that I was praising God Jeremy Jr wasn't in there yet. But you did an excellent job keeping them safe. The Lord always works like that if we would but listen. Praise God you did. :)
