Comfort Me

This week I am trying to stay concentrated on what I am writing. As I write reflecting on the week, there was a forest fire across the lake from us on Friday afternoon and evening. It was contained by midnight and when we awoke on Saturday a steady rain drenched our county for many hours. My painting friend Ann Morgan was evacuated from her home on Friday evening and stayed here in Tall Tree with our neighbors.

I can't imagine a time better to pray out of 'afraid' with something this huge wall of fire closing in on you.  Ann only had a few moments to take what was the most precious. She laughed saying she grabbed her pillow first and her dog second. She did get some clothes and her laptop and some important papers and her jewelry...and then scampered to her car. Her faith is strong. She came by our house and was going to stay with us but had a better offer. I laugh because she has a large dog and as you know Paddy is not the friendliest in sharing his space.  Ann stayed with Jo and Tony just a few houses away as they have a small friendly dog. Ann was confident God would spare her home; she knows His love protects her always.

The finish of Psalm 86: 15-17 seems just the right place to be:

15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
   slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;
   show your strength in behalf of your servant;
save me, because I serve you
   just as my mother did.
17 Give me a sign of your goodness,
   that my enemies may see it and be put to shame,
   for you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV
