To all my readers out there, whether I have heard from you or not...I covet your prayers right now for Texas that is suffering devastation from wildfires. It is so surreal.
Here is a link where I get most of my information if you'd like to check it out http://austin.ynn.com/ - the fires are ZERO contained on Day 3 of the fires, it's just so unreal.
We are about 8 miles southwest of Bastrop, to give you some idea of geography. About 1:30 yesterday, after hearing a CLOSER street to us needing to evacuate, I decided to leave (John was out with friends at the time). We are at John's dad's house with our cat Elsie and are looking forward to going back home, but only if it is safe. 2 fires broke out just a few miles from our home yesterday and that was too close for comfort. We are both at work today, but of course we are having a hard time concentrating.
John's co-worker who does not live very far from us had their house looted. I heard there is extra law enforcement to prevent this, but it just shocks me there are people with no regard for the pain & suffering others are going through that they disrespect in that manner.
Many families' lives have been uprooted by these fires and my heart goes out to them. Please pray for them as well and pass on the information to others who like to pray for those in need!
Will keep you posted and thank you!!
