Question of the Week #41

Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire; after saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be?

Question 41 - FireI’m not someone that gets sentimental about stuff. Because to me, that’s all it really is: stuff. I don’t know how much stuff I threw away when I was going through Dad’s house after he passed away. I know the city of Roanoke complained a few times because of all the stuff they had to haul away from the curb. I guess a better Christian than I would say they’d go back for their Bible. But I don’t have one of those family heirloom type of Bibles. Don’t get me wrong, I do like my Study Bible all right, but even that is replaceable. I honestly look around my place and can’t think of anything that I couldn’t live without. Losing a lot of that stuff in a fire would be a huge inconvenience, yes, but again, it’s just stuff. It’s easily replaced.

One thought on “Question of the Week #41

  1. Not that we were in this same situation, but a few months ago, we had to vacate our home due to a carbon monoxide alarm going off. I grabbed the kids and retreated to the farthest corner of our yard. You know, because movies are always correct, and they all show things blowing up into smithereens many hundreds of feet away.

    Anyhow, the one thing I would have liked to have on hand would have been a favorite toy for the baby to play with while we waited. Something familiar to him, comforting. If something like the house burning down had happened, it would have been something to tide him over and to entertain him.
