I have awakened to strange things in the past, a rooster crowing in Lyon France and seagulls in Constanta Romania to name a few. But this past Sunday was the strangest wake up call I have ever had.
My Spanish speaking friends could not come to my Sunday group due to working. They told me the night before, so I decided to stay home and get some sleep and watch the worship service online. I had taken some medicine that causes drowsiness, so I was sleeping peacefully until it happened.
I woke up to the sound of a man yelling hello in my apartment. Not outside, inside my apartment. I peaked out of my bedroom only to see two police officers with my door open. Needless to say it was quite a surprise. lol
I was somewhat confused as to why they were there. I haven’t broken any laws. They were smiling and quite friendly and let me know someone had called out of concern if I was okay because I was not at church and when they stopped by they saw my van and I did not answer the door. My doorbell hasn’t worked for a long time which I like because living in an apartment building, I don’t have to worry about anyone’s late night visitors ringing the wrong doorbell.
They asked me if I needed an ambulance, I assured them I didn’t. They left and I went back to sleep.
After the police officers left, my first thoughts were along the lines of, “I have walked the streets of cities in many countries I can take care of myself,” and “maybe I need a new church.” But then I calmed down and realized it was out of concern the call was made.
One day there will be a huge wake up call when Jesus comes back. 1st Corinthians 15:
in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
That is a wake up I am looking forward to.
But I still do not plan to get my doorbell fixed. 🙂
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

What a way to wake up 🙂
Oh my goodness, Matt!!! Now that would have scared me! Waking up to someone in your house, the police, at that! I would have been clueless, thinking something had happened to someone! And probably fell over laughing discovering that someone was me! 😳🤣 Glad you are ok! 🙃😁
It was quite the experience lol
To say the least!!! Not one any of us would wish to go through! 😆
If only they had brought some ice cream lol
🤣😂 If only!!! Here ya go – virtual🍦!!!
Glad you are doing fine and didn’t faint. I definitely would have and one to laugh about later. So sweet of them to come by and check up on you 🙂
Thanks little sister. How is your week?
Wow! I am surprised they didn’t leave a note and try again in a few hours. Did they break the door to get in? and did the person try to call you first?
My window was not locked so they opened the window to come in. I lock it now. Lol
I’m surprised someone from your favorite coffee shop didn’t call the cops 👮♀️ too! 😂. Seriously, this is pretty bizarre. You were only missing for a matter of hours. On the other hand, it’s really cool that people from your church care that much about you.
It was bizarre lol
What a crazy wake up call!!
It definitely was lol
Ahh I think it’s sweet that those in your church were concerned and wanted to check on you. Creepy you had to wake up that way though!😅❤️
It was weird lol
