plumes of smoke


around three thirty today the fire that started yesterday afternoon roared back into existance. all day it looked as if it was under control, but once the wind picked up the fire took off. we are okay although this one is the closest we have been to. it is only about two miles up the road from us. this photo was taken off our front balcony looking west. keep us in your prayers as we are yet again in a community of people who are losing their homes.

today i am incredibly grateful for...firefighters. they have a very tough job but they do it so well. thank you for devoting your life to help save others and their homes.

Oh my goodness. That is terrible. We have had lots of fires here too but God has been in control and no houses were lost. I'll be praying for you guys and know it's in His hands.
