it seemed to have taken a bad turn today..
:( they closed off the road in front of wal mart.. first time they have had to close roads that far in town
they said sometime around 3 am we might see some rain :)
i see it as a mixed blessing tho i guess, cause of the damage in texas n mexico from this same front.. blessing for us but harm to them
sigh,.. just a sad irony of life i guess

i just pray we will get the much needed rain and life can get back to norm down here soon
im not even out there fighting the fire, or had to leave my home
and im already feeling drained from it all..
we need to all pray for those fighting this and also those who have lost their homes are still waiting to hear

Amie you will be fine for your visit. St. Mary's is far enough away. Thanks for the prayers and hope you enjoy your visit to the US. Would love to see beautiful Netherlands one day. God be with all of the people in Georgia dealing with this tragedy!!!!

Maybe FEMA should send a few of the
10,000 house trailers they have in Hope Ark. Most country home sites have wells etc. and could set up the trailers without much additional work. I looked at the FEMA web site but it was more than I could deal with.

lol all this land is stolen land.. umm as a native american i have to speak the truth
but ..even i know it isnt right to wish harm on anyone!

this is the 2nd post iv read today where people are wishing bad on others

this fire is not some sort of tool to wish revange on people
gesh.. we need to all be praying for peoples well being
stop being selfish and think of others
pray for others
it is not the way of the creator to use prayers to wish harm on anyone

gerrr

and have to say it saddens me and makes me wish i hadnt checked in at all
