Since last November (probably longer), I've been planning my move to Colorado. I wanted to be there at the beginning of this month. I think about stuff like this and it makes me wonder if God is actually protecting me from something. Specifically fires right now.
A couple years ago, when I was living in a bad situation, my dog had just died, and I was really upset with no support system anywhere near me. I'm convinced that God orchestrated my plans to be able to move back to Iowa the very next day. Otherwise, I probably would have killed someone.
We can't see the big picture. It's really hard to know what the Plan is for our lives, but I believe that we'll get there eventually. I'm following the fires on the news and through facebook, and it's honestly starting to freak me out. The flames look close, and remind me of a disaster movie.

The closest I've ever been to a fire is when varnish combusted when we were finishing our basement when I was thirteen. Scary, but God protected us. I just pray this madness ends soon.
As much as I hate watching this on the news, I do feel a sense of relief that God is keeping me safe. I just pray He keeps my family, friends, and all of the citizens of the area safe.
