My big sis lost her apartment last year in a horrible house fire. (Did I talk about that here?) They didn't have a working smoke detector, but God woke her up in the middle of the night. My sister, brother-in-law and nieces were given the gift of life in 2008.
Unfortunately, even if you decided to pray every night for God to wake you up IF your house catches fire, God doesn't let us handpick our blessings, so I want you to PLEASE get a smoke detector in 2009 AND check your batteries. Ok? I mean, deepfry some catfish and let it burn one day just to see if that bad boy goes off. Ok? You life depends on it.
