I am so thankful that I have a co-host for Family Fun Friday. Diane at My Life As Robin’s Wife is the primary host this week as my family has been evacuated from our home in Colorado due to a fire that started in our neighborhood. If you’d like to see the features and the regular blog post for Family Fun Friday please visit Diane’s blog.
Our home is in a heavily wooded area. As of right now over 360 structures (mostly primary residences) and 15,000+ acres have burned & are still burning. People are seeking refuge at shelters and churches in our town. I started Family Fun Friday to place a focus on family and NOW my life is TRULY focused on family. I cling to my husband and two boys and thank God for our safety. I am so thankful for the family members we are staying with as we watch the news cover the growth of the fire with images of smoke and homes burned to the ground. Please keep Colorado in your prayers – that the firefighters and police and community workers can get the flames out and that people’s lives are spared.
If you don’t have anything planned this weekend – make sure to hug the people you love a little tighter and give thanks to God for every minute with your family. They are truly God’s greatest gift to each of us. Be blessed this weekend and thank you for your prayers. Thank you for being a part of Family Fun Friday and the Happy and Blessed Home Community.
