"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

It is late Tuesday afternoon and I had a different post in mind~that is until I got a text that said there is a wildfire in Carmel Valley. All the fires in California have me concerned, but this one imparticularly-because my best friend since high school lives in the mountains above Carmel Valley and they are always on the lookout. I texted her immediately and while the fire is a couple of ridges over, she was being evacuated at the moment. The hills are covered with shrub oak, dry grasses and dry trees and the fire is too close to them. How does one evacuate on a moments notice? Hopefully, for those that live in the mountains, surrounded by trees, you have things ready to be packed in the cars quickly. I've seen reality shows where they do a fire drill to see just how long it takes to get things loaded and get out. When we lived in northern Ca. we backed up to open space, we had wildfires that were just too close for comfort. My heart goes out to all those who are facing this, whether in California or Colorado or another state. Bless the firefighters and crews working in such dangerous conditions. May those who have lost their homes be comforted by others. My angels assist those fighting the blazes and keep them safe.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
