I read one person's account early last week, describing what my mind can't really comprehend: she described how she witnessed horses, burning alive and fruitlessly trying to run for safety.
Human lives are in danger, one Firefighter has already died in the line of duty.
I have to admit, this seemed somewhat abstract at first. Huge hundred acre ranches burning as the families watched. Ranches far from any recognizable towns I had heard of, is now becoming closer to "home" to me. The latest reports I have heard is the fires are now approaching the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
No, this Metropolitan Area may not be in imminent danger, but without having more than an inch of rain in many months, it seems nothing is corrently in sights to control this Killer Wildfire.
This is why We All need to keep the State of Texas close to our thoughts and prayers. This is where so many of God's Creatures live peacefully and in harmony with the land - until Nature somehow miscalculates, and creates lethal conditions.
Please remember to join in and pray for All God's Creatures who may be in the path of this raging fire, and pray that it ceases to exist soon, so that in time, the scorched Earth can be replaced with Bright, Sweet Grass.
Blessings and Peace,
