Thanks for prayers about fire and still need more

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

I had so many people respond to my blog about the forest fire burning not too far from where I live in an area I am extremely familiar with and love dearly. I appreciate the prayers for the area and for the fire fighters an all the support crew and residents of the area. The fire this morning's update said, has grown from 6,700 acres yesterday to 11,500 acres by today and now is only quarter of a mile from the small village of Kingston. About 45 people live there and have been evacuated since Monday early morning. So far the firefighters have worked hard to protect the homes and buildings there and area continuing to do so. Today is the possibility of dry lightening strikes, which could spark new fires. The area where its located is very dense and rugged and they have not been able to build a containment line at all around any portion of it yet, so it is still zero percent contained.
Wildfires are the main natural disaster that we have to deal with here in New Mexico. It's always on my mind during this time of year and my heart always goes out to the areas affected by the fires. But this one is extremely close to home for me. Not geographically, as it's not spreading this way and not much danger of it coming this direction, although fires are unpredictable and you never know what will happen. But because it's in an area I am so familiar with and have a lot of fond memories of that makes it really hard for me. I appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers for those going through it.

    I can't imagine a raging forest fire being that close to my home! A quarter mile is only a couple of blocks! I can see the elementary school from my back yard that's a quarter mile away! When I heard that on the news last night, I was so sad. I pray that the Lord manages to spare the homes, and helps the fire fighters with some cooler temps, higher humidity, and hopefully some much-needed rain over the next 3 days!

    I'm praying. Where do you live?
I survived a house fire. It is a devastating experience.

    I grew up in the Land of Enchantment and it is still near and dear to my heart.
