I’m sure you’ve heard, there are fires blazing up here in Washington State! It’s been a tough summer, with record heat and dry conditions, the perfect conditions for fire to thrive. They’ve left in their wake a black blanket of destruction.
We are located on the Eastern part of the state, hours from any fire and yet the smoke has engulfed the city of Spokane.
Looking out the window, it’s as if the fog of fall has come early, only a step outside tells a different story as the strong smell of smoke overtakes my senses.
Burning eyes and an itching throat is a small effect to experience, compared to those who are fighting the fires and others who have lost all their possessions and more tragically their loved ones.
It’s just unbelievable that the smoke has traveled hundreds of miles, unwilling to dissipate and still able to pack this kind of punch.
Please pray for those who fight these huge fires on the front lines! God Bless.
