If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) a couple of days ago, you'll know that I discussed Fort McMurray. And, the trouble everyone who lived there, had... due to the fire that has literally destroyed it.
Even if the whole area was not 100% destroyed, much of it was.
Does this mean that people have lost their homes. Many have. Some may not have.
Much like my friend, I's niece who owns a home there.
After writing that LwL entry, I actually called long distance, and spoke with my friend, I.
It's funny that when we began to speak together, I let me know that she had been thinking of me, all day. :) Just as I had been thinking of her. And, her two (2) nieces who had been living in Fort McMurray.
Her oldest niece, C and her family had lived there for several years. And, they owned a home, there.
I told me that as of Wednesday, C and her family had not yet lost their home. How did they know? They had a video camera on their home, that they could see some of their property with, through their cell phones, or by use on the internet.
For this, I praised God! He answered my prayer, in a special way.
Does this mean they won't have lost their home?
Truthfully, only God knows.
The fire has been moving from area to area. My prayer is that their home won't be destroyed.
Even if it is still there, when they are able to return, it doesn't mean they will be able to live in it.
For this, I'll be praying.
Not just for C, and her family. Also, for her younger sister, I and her family... who had only moved to Fort McMurray in March, this year, and had been living with C, and her family.
Prayer, is so very important.
Just as we read, in Philippians 4:6, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
We can be careful for nothing. After all, God is in control. Not us.
In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God... is so very important.
I praised God, and thanked Him... when I heard what my friend, I had told me regarding the situation concerning two (2) of her nieces, and their families.
I felt sad, when on the news we heard that the only people who had died, had been involved in a motor vehicle collision. For this, I feel bad, and send condolences to their family and friends. They will suffer grief.
Other than that happening, no one died from the fire that has destroyed so much of that area. For this, I praise God!
And, will continue to pray. Not just for my friend, I's nieces and their family... even though I have known them for many years.
Prayer will continue for everyone who has been affected by the destruction of much of their lives.
Please, join me in prayer.
If you do, may God bless you, my friend.
Until next time...
