I have had one of those days where I know God is close and ordering my steps. We had a barn fire today. It happened at lunch time when we were home. On Fridays, we are sometimes somewhere else at lunch time. But today God had us at home. I was sitting down to eat with my boys, and my daughter was taking a load of towels out to hang on our clothesline. She heard a noise toward our barn, and she went over to check it out. She saw a small fire in one area of the barn and ran to tell me. I immediately grabbed my phone and dailed 9-1-1. At the same time, I walked out to survey the damage. We had chickens, feed, hay, and assorted tools out in the barn. Our volunteer fire department was here very quickly, but the barn was engulfed in flames by the time they arrived. It was located very close to our woods, and I was very concerned about a brush fire. God had that under control. He sent us two days of rain this week, and it was just damp enough that it did not spread. If it had been drier out there, it would have been a very different story.
I am very thankful that our family, our house, and our neighbors’ houses are all okay tonight. God is so good!
My husband was out of town during all of this, and he arrived at work only to have a front axle fall off and tear up two front tires. It is now sitting in the parking lot at work, and we will have to have it towed later. God is good in this, too. It happened just as he was backing up slowly. It did not happen while he was driving faster down the road. Thank you, God, for your protection today!
