A scare

My wife told me something scary.

We were cooking some eggs on our gas stove last night to add to our dinner.  We had the fire on the smallest setting.

Apparently we both forgot to turn it off.

When she woke up and went to the kitchen, she was surprised the kitchen is somewhat warm (usually it's freezing cold in the morning).  To her horror, the flame was still going on the stove.  She quickly turn it off.

We give thanks to the Lord that nothing had happened to us during the evening.  It was very scary.

We do have a smoke alarm, but the gas-stove was going on the smallest setting and gives off no smoke, so the alarm didn't go off.  The window was also slighly open so that the kitchen had fresh air.
