Yesterday was a stressful day of devastating fires throughout our state. Many homes and structures have been lost. Our firefighters are exhausted fighting this devil in the triple digit temps. The winds were strong, the air thick like fog. There was a smell of smoke as ashes fell from the sky. Health warnings suggested staying inside. The ash is dangerous to breathe. And just as I was about to spread a little water on our trees last night, I was greeted with a pleasant surprise. Thunder. Lightning. Rain. Unfortunately, for the areas burning, the shifting winds just stirred the fire to flames again. Fires are still burning today. Please join Oklahoma and surrounding states in praying for rain and relief. Thank you to our fire fighters and the many volunteers!
