WOW Story! 3x Open Miracle from Hashem – Hashgacha Pratis
I have to share this with you because it is such a WOW story and then not only happened once but 3x, 2 days in a row, Hashem saved me! I will never forget this ever, as Hashem is so amazing and so good to all of us, we only have to notice it more often, because every second is actually a miracle, but when you see something with your own eyes, you are more in awe and also LOVE HASHEM, TOO!!
Fri. Jan 27/23
I was preparing my spinach for a salad, and is a special kind called Okinawa Spinach and has gorgeous leaves, purple on one side and green on the other with jagged edges and flat leaves, as well. I say all this because of what happened. I washed the leaves and didn’t think anything of really having to check them so well for bugs because it is so easy to see the leaves and I put them in a lot of water.
I cut up the leaves and all was just fine and when I finished I saw something on the cutting board and thought it was maybe an end piece that was cut off, but when I tried to pick it up it was soft and then I realized it was a green worm. Yishtabach Shemo! Hashem in His infinite chesed saved me from eating a worm and it was not a tiny one either. As well as I thought I had looked, I did not look well enough. I learned my lesson there, but it was still a BIG WOW moment for me. What if I didn’t notice it and just put it in the salad? How could I possibly have missed it, I will never know?
Now I wanted to put it outside, as I try not to kill any of Hashem’s creatures, if I can help it. I took a piece of a spinach leaf and tried to get it on there and it retracted because it was scared and I talked to it and said I am only trying to take you outside and it finally agreed and I took it out on the leaf.
I was so much b’simcha on what happened and couldn’t thank Hashem enough!!
So you thought that was the end of the story, what happened yesterday and so did I, but I had another WOW story and is a double WOW!
I was making a salad with dandelion greens which are flat leaves and very easy to see if anything is on there and this time, I checked very very carefully, before I washed them with water and then after. What happened before I washed them, as I was looking at the leaves, I saw a small snail on one of the leaves and I took it outside.
WOW! Hashem saved me again!
After that I had put the unwashed leaves I was going to use in a bowl and all of the sudden I saw a ladybug on the rim of the bowl, it wanted to fly away, but I wanted to quickly get it outside and went to the door and blew on it and it flew away.
The 3rd WOW that Hashem saved me!
Three OPEN MIRACLES in 2 days!!
Baruch Hashem, I had the zechus to warrant that happening to me 3x and is unbelievable to say the least!
Of course, please do be extra careful when checking your greens and don’t think because the leaf is flat and easy to see it, that a bug can’t find a way to hide in there, regardless.
