Last summer in mid-June (ironic!) I decided to give our mantle a makeover. I love decorating and the silk floral bookends were getting very outdated. When I left in the pouring rain, told the kids what I had in mind and that in an hour I’d return. Well, in typical me fashion couldn’t find what I was looking for and ended up going to four stores! Finally, made it home with some new pieces including a nice flameless candle lantern I had my heart set on.
I never had one before and it was perfect for not worrying about blowing out a hot flame or accidentally forgetting one time! Only recently did I realize the batteries needed replaced. I knew with the weather changing soon and darkness coming earlier, this lantern would light up my mantle in the evening. We were all out of AA batteries so I had to wait but what I noticed stunned me.
When opening the battery compartment to the lantern, the two AA batteries popped out and the name on them said warriors. I couldn’t believe this since never have I even heard of such a battery brand! After laughing and just looking in astonishment, I decided how funny it would be posting on Twitter and showing Steve (Warrior’s manager). His response back was: “They will live forever!”
What a perfect answer from him and am so happy he tweeted back 😊 I actually looked up info on these batteries and found nothing! I even googled images of warrior AA batteries and not even anything similar resembling mine popped up, just battery related products or services. I know some stores use off-brand names when you buy a product but finding out nothing seems so strange and yet very familiar with many Warrior experiences of mine.
Maybe the mysterious batteries will be resolved one day but is so interesting to me when I remember getting this lantern last year and only now replacing them. Warrior is constantly living forever and like a flameless candle, he can never be extinguished just like us warriors who will never put out our flames. 🕯
P.S. Only very recently did I realize that when I opened the battery compartment to the candle, it was a few days before my birthday… What a wonderful early present for me from his Spirit… ⚡️🌟
