In Case of Fire

Fire!Today while we were cleaning up the basement, I decided it’d be a good time to test the fire alarms. The one in the basement makes an awfully loud and unpleasant sound, which startled Corinne. Greta and I figured this would be a good time to talk about what to do if the fire alarms were to go off. We explained to Corinne that she should try to find us and we could all get out of the house safely. Then we’d call the firemen.

This seemed to satisfy her, so we asked her to repeat what we should do if the fire alarms go off. She replied that, “we should get out of the house. Then we call God. And he’ll call the firemen to come to our house.”

Indeed, that’s certainly a good plan.

    Corinne has been taught by good parents about God being near and ready to help when we are in trouble! Great thinking Corinne! 🙂
