I became accustomed to sleeping with the lamp on and my Bible in the bed with me after someone began stalking me and making threatening phone calls.  I would hear noises outside, but the police could never find anyone.  I had spent so much money trying to secure the house, only to discover that my attempts had been of no help.  One night I awoke, and the lamp was on as usual, but I could smell bread baking.  I thought I must have been so stressed out that I’d forgotten to turn the oven off, and I ran to the kitchen.  It was cold and dark.  Nothing was cooking, nothing was turned on, and there was no smell of bread.  As I got back into bed, I could smell fresh bread again.  I told myself that this was God’s way of comforting me because fresh bread was served at Sunday dinner with the family all around.  I did feel comforted, and I went back to sleep.

This is an excerpt from my book, String of Pearls.  I believe Christ was with me that night long ago. To find out how I realized He was there read, String of Pearls.
