Did I do that?

Imagine me asking that question in my whiny Steve Urkel voice!!!
All of you probably remember the television show "Family Matters".  My Daddy loved that show, simply because of Steve and how he could do the craziest things....then, would always ask the question....
"Did I do that"?
Well....that was kinda what I was asking myself yesterday morning as I discovered my cell phone at the bottom of the washing machine!!!
Here's the story....
When I go to bed at night, I always lay my cell phone on the nightstand.  Monday night I didn't get into bed until around 1:00...which I guess technically was actually Tuesday....but, anyway, I was already in bed all comfy (Pappy had my side of the electric blanket on....sigh!)....but, I realized that I had forgotten my cell phone and figured I had left it on the couch where I had been crocheting and would get it the next morning.  Well....I got up when Pappy did and my phone wasn't on the couch....and I immediately had that gut feeling I knew exactly where it was.  When I got home Monday night, I did yet another load of laundry (about my 5th load for the day)....and I took off my jeans and included them in the wash.
Guess where my cell phone was?
Yep....in my jeans pocket!!
All I can say is....Samsung must make some mighty reliable phones....because Pappy took the battery out of his phone, which is just like mine....we put it in mine after I had used the blow dryer on it....and it works!!!  We were both praising the Lord and thanking HIM....because all I could see were $$$ flashing before my eyes and we've got CHRIST-mas gifts to buy!!!

Now....it still has a few kinks that need to dry out....but the phone works!!!

So why am I sharing this?
Because....when I first thought that I was  going to be "phoneless" for the day....or longer....I panicked.  I wondered how anybody would get in touch with me....or how would I let anybody know that they couldn't get in touch with me.  Plus, like I said, those $$$ signs kept flashing before my eyes!!!

And....later on....I also remembered what I had said on Monday....that I couldn't wait to see what God had in store for me this week....and I had to laugh!!!


Yep....I "did do that"....I washed my cell phone....but what a blessing that it still works!!!

Ephesians 5:20 (NKJV)
....giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Notice this verse of scripture says to give thanks "always"....and for "all things"!!

I definitely believe that includes when He saves us from our own mistakes!!! 
;)

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  1. Adam has had this same thing happened at our house cell phone being washed. You would just be shock at the things that end up in my washer sometimes with 3 little boys in the house. Adam actually has one that is water proof now and very durable. We renew our contract and got it for free.

  2. We use the blow dryer on our daughters' phones when they drop them in the toilet! I use present tense because they still do that from time to time and come right home so dad can fix it!

  3. You were very lucky. Some people put them in a bag of rice when they get wet, and they say it draws the moisture out.
    I dropped mine in a glass of diet coke one time, but I didn't know it for about an hour, and it was hopeless.
    I got my LGTough a year ago, and I'm on my 3rd phone. Not my fault, they were all faulty. Now this one will probably die since it will be out of warranty.
    Have a good day!
