Stove Knobs Part 1

How to fix the stove knob. Part 1

That was my google search. My knob needed fixed, at the time my husband was at work. To say that I am mechanical in anyway would be a complete and utter lie. Quite frankly, my husband does not claim that talent either. However, to say that I am stubborn is the complete and utter truth. Or we could say determined…you may decide. Nevertheless, the search began!

I soon found the stove make and model and realized that I needed some special tools that did not include the small hammer and kitchen knife I used for every other “fix it” job I encountered. So, I opened the door of my husband’s shed…and yes, the toolbox was calling my name! Everything I ever needed to fix anything I needed fixed was right there!! Those tools had been there forever, but I really never knew I had them at my disposal.

Armed and now ready for battle, I took my newly discovered toolbox and headed for the kitchen. I was ready to fix that knob. It sounded like a simple enough job, and remember…I was “determined”. With printed instructions in one hand and my toolbox in another, I began my session.

Many times I had the same thought…”what is this tool”? I could not even begin to know how to use them. What good was that tool chest going to do me I did not know what the tools were or what their purpose was? If the toolbox just laid next to me on the floor it was not doing any good either.

So as any determined woman would do, I headed to the internet again. “How to Use Tools” seemed logical. Yes, I found more instructions and you will be interested (or not) to know that I fixed that knob in ten minutes!! Even I was surprised at my accomplishment! I had the instructions and the tool box. Applying that knowledge with the tools I possessed solved the problem at hand.

Stay tuned to Part 2 of STOVE KNOBS” to find out what this means to you!! Ephesians 4:11-15…..It’s good stuff!

Blessings dear ones…

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~
