Chelan on Fire

posted in: In the Life | 0

Chelan, WA is on fire…

 

My heart and prayers go out to those who have homes and property in Chelan.  We have many friends who are watching and waiting for news regarding their homes.

 

I grew up in the Wenatchee area.  Every year we would travel to Chelan and enjoy that amazing part of God’s creation.  The crystal clear waters refreshed our souls. The dry hills were a reminder that the sun shines almost all the time. I love the area still, and return there often.

 

Though it is hard to watch this amazing part of creation burn, the power of Creation’s fire is amazing too. The fires have been a part of this area for as long as I can remember. This year seems worse than ever. The fires are a reminder that what we have only lasts so long.  It will be heart breaking for those who will lose their homes.  My prayer is that no one will lose their lives.

 

Fire is a reminder of an unstoppable force.  Lord, set us on fire for You.

Fire is a reminder of what is temporary. Lord, help us remember what is permanent and what is temporary in this life.

Fire is a reminder that we are all in this together.  Lord help us help each other.

Fire is a reminder to pray.  Lord help anyone that may find themselves in a fire today.
