Fires are spreading across Texas

fed by high winds and drought dried grasslands. Thousands of acres of land has been destroyed and many have lost their homes.

Prayer circles are formed in every church and center available with everyone gathering to pray for rain and for the safety of loved ones near and far. Everyone is sitting anxiously by the phone..........waiting for a call to say that "all is well".

Please pray for us here in Texas.........for rain and for the safety from these treacherous fires.

Hi Kathleen,

It seems that Mother Nature is on a rampage this spring...you with the high winds and fires and the south having heavy destruction from 62 tornadoes over the past few days. We had very high winds for a few days and a bit of rain but we dodged the bad stuff this time by as close as 5 miles. Thomas went into Pigeon Forge yesterday morning and all of the rivers are out of their banks {again}. We are seeing spring storms like we've never seen before..this is our third spring in our new home...so it seems that the harsh winter that we all experienced is continuing into spring.

I do pray for everyone that is in harms way. Are any of these fires close to you?? I pray for you and families, friends, neighbors and for the whole of Texas.

Keep us updated....

Hugs and Love,
Stephanie ♥

I live in southern Oklahoma and can completely understand the wildfires. We will be praying for rain for you.
I am so glad you stopped by the American Home. You are always welcome.
Many Blessings,

Kathleen, I have been hearing about the fires there on the news and thinking of you. I'll keep you and those others in the line of danger in my prayers.

Hello Kathleen,

Sorry to hear about the fires in your area, hope you are safe from them and that the rains come soon.
Happy days.

My heart goes out to all those involved in fighting or in the path of these deadly fires. All our technology hasn't been able to prevent this. Take care!

We're praying, Kathleen. We've had many small fires here in East Texas, too. My daughter is in college out west-ways and she said the skies are hazy and there is ash on their cars.

Two of our friends at church have lost their deer leases out your way due to fires burning the complete lease, cabins, etc. I feel for the people out there as well as their livestock and wildlife - game fences are a death trap right now. So sad... I'm hoping this new front will bring rain to neede parts of Texas this week! Please take care!

I feel bad about complaining about snow and rain here. I have been hearing about Texas in the news and have been worried. Prayers for you and everyone.

Kathleen, I am so sad to hear about the fires over there. We understand and sympathise with you; Australia is oh so familiar with fires and drought.
I watched in horror as our t.v. news showed the devastation wreaked by the tornadoes over there. I assume from your comments here that you are safe. I'm visiting as many of my American friends blogs as I can, to leave messages of hope.
Hugs from Gina

Been listening to the news about the wildfires - and praying for you and your family (and everyone in Texas) to be safe from harm.
