Fire update.

Many of you have been asking about the Waldo Canyon Fire that is engulfing Colorado Springs and if we are ok. First off, we are safe and very far from the fire. The fire is on the west side of town, about 30 miles away for us. In order for it to reach us, it would first have to take over the whole town. So, I'm thinking we don't have to worry! Thank you for those concerned, however, we appreciate your thoughts. We have good friends. :)

Nevertheless, there are many in danger. The fire has reached over 15,000 acres and is only 5% contained. The estimated containment date is around July 16. Over 32,500 residents have had to evacuate, many losing their homes. Please be praying for our town!

Here are some pictures from the fire.

39 Weeks.

Well Lima Bean is almost 9 months old (tomorrow). Crazy!

If I can manage it, I thought I might try to have a short 9 month photo shoot tomorrow morning. Hot and dry + constant wind + smoke from the fire = not the optimal photo shoot conditions.

The fire last night:

Abiding in the Word.

"He received the sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised. The purpose was to make him the father of all who believe without being circumcised, so that righteousness would be counted to them as well."

Romans 4:11

We have been having a lot of wildfires out in CO. Please pray that we will get some rain because it is so dry. Also, pray for the safety of those working to put the fires out as well as those who live near the areas affected by the fire.

Happy 38 weeks LB!

This is Lima Bean's newest facial expression. I guess she thinks she's extra cute with a wrinkled up nose. :)
