Right now we have options. But we're preparing to leave, after cartoons. Kids don't know much yet. But the Fallbrook fire started northeast of us last night, with winds blowing southwest toward us. Camp Pendleton is preparing to evacuate.
Do we drive home? Drive to our friend's? Drive to our relative's? I know we're here until November 15, but going back across the desert doesn't sound economical either.
O Lord, give us Your wisdom. "You are the everlasting God, you do not faint, You don't grow weary. You're the defender of the weak, You comfort those in need, You lift us up on wings like eagles." I will praise You in the storm Father!
Since writing the above, we prayed all together as a family. The kids prayed for the firefighters, the people losing their homes and pets. That we'd get a wind in from the ocean. Sure enough, God thought we should see His power right away! We looked at the TV and along the bottom, it said,
"Fires rage across San Diego county, sea breeze blows in to the north."
The kids' mouths fell open, as did mine.
So we're doing schoolwork today
