If you follow me on Facebook, you probably heard that I was supposed to meet my newest baby nephew for the first time this weekend up in Colorado Springs. The visit was canceled due to the massive devastation of the Waldo Canyon Fire.
While I’ve been aching to hold this little nugget , I’m so very grateful that my brother’s family has not needed to evacuate, though the possibility has certainly been present all week. We continue to pray for all the families that have lost their homes, and have been impacted by these fires. We pray also for the many firefighters, families, and organizations that now fight to rescue and provide for these communities. May the Lord grant beauty for ashes (Isaiah 61:3).
And, I didn’t forget…
Thanks so much for participating in the Shabby Apple Giveaway!
Congratulations to Aileen, who is the winner!
