|I won this for having an Epicure party. It is insulated and I love it!|
You have the instructions so you know that the first step is right? Boil the water. Okay,I am Canadian and we love electric kettles. They are a super fast way of boiling water. I have one the kinds that shut off automatically.
So yesterday I go to make coffee, I flick the switch and... nothing happens!! No power! WHAT??! Oh no, no no.... I try it again. I hit it (yes you read that right, I smack it on the side: hard since that often works) and no power! I try another outlet and still no power. I sigh. I think to myself, "Oh drat, I hope I can find another one here on the island!" We don't have Walmart, and the things the grocery store gets in are often very random.
Now I know what you are thinking: just put water in the pot and boil it. I don't like that. It takes too long and also sometimes when I pour the boiled water into my bodum it splashes me. So I opt to use my Moka Pot which is my second favourite way to drink coffee.
Still I am eyeing my kettle sadly.. What a shame. What a shame!! I had planned on taking it to my electrical friend Don to get him to test the plug. I am just not willing to go buy another one!! (we are on a budget plus I am cheap!)
So here we are now, this morning at 5:45. I am ready to make coffee. I just instinctively go to my kettle and click the button. Nothing!! Oh drat. I repeat all the above steps: I hit it hard, I try another plug in and I am bemoaning it. I say O Lord this is terrible! Then this thought occurs to me: take out some of the water! I think to myself, well why not? It can't hurt!
And guess what? I do it and I try the switch and IT WORKS!!!!!!! I burst out laughing. HALLELUJAH!
A miracle? I think so! The Lord can do anything!! I mean really why would taking water out of an electric kettle make it work? I talked to my friend Don and he said he doesn't know why pouring water out would make it work.
Because He loves to test us to see if we will actually do what He says! It takes faith to obey. When He says something: do it!
I could have said, "Nah I am not taking water out of that kettle, that won't help! It doesn't make sense!" I did it and then HE DID THE REST! Nothing is too hard for Him. Many things that Jesus asks us to do don't make sense ... to us.
And for the record:
Yes the water boiled but it didn't turn into wine... maybe next time!
