It seems every year during the dry season we have a big fire next to our property.  We never know how it really starts but it spreads fast, especially if it is windy.  Also there is a major electric pole right there so we must be careful to clear around and wet it down so the fire does not blow it up.

So, it is all hands on deck and everyone gets a bucket and starts carrying/passing buckets of water to the fire.  Then another group goes into the fire with branches from a tree to beat down the fire.  There is no fire department to call!!!!!!!  After the fire was out, several had to cross through water because of the way the fire went around the water on both sides.  All were safe except one had a deep cut because of stepping on a broken bottle.

Never thought we would be fire fighting but you do what you have to do.  God is always keeping a hedge of protection around us – even through the fires of the day!

  1. Keeps the no so hard stuff, that seems hard, in perspective! You can add firefighting to your resume. :)
