We had a fire last week in our little town of Denton. The blaze started November 1, during an unseasonably warm time, a long with a high wind event. A downed power line was determined to be the cause of the fire.
At 1:30 PM on Dec 1 the town siren went off, and we were all evacuated. I remember just feeling calm but the smoke in the air and realization that our town might completely be gone was something I did not wish to ponder.
We were gone for 2 days, and we didn’t know for at least 25 hours if our house was still intact. It turned out someone spotted a fire very near our house (under the deck) and put it out for us. But 25 homes were lost and several outbuildings. IN a town of this size (less than 400) That is pretty devestating, to say the least.
I am so thankful we are still here. With love (and I will write more soon) Laura Grace
I was that "unpopular" wierdo kid, that didn't fit in anywhere, in High School. I guess I never knew my place in life, until Jesus took me in. I've been rejected, misunderstood, left out, bullied, abused, scandalized, and labeled. In 2002 I got on a bus and left a marraige of sixteen years, that was fraught with abuse and heartache. In school, I used to be so afraid to stand in front of the class and speak, my hands woud visibily shake, and I could not look at my audience without being terrified.
Years later, I find myself leading a school music production, speaking in front of churches, and walking around with confidence, because I know the King of Kings is at my side.
My ministry, prayers and blogs are directed toward those who feel like they were never enough. You never fit in.
If I can help you in any way, if you need a special speaker to speak hope to the hurting, or if you would like a copy of my Testimony book (Grace to the Rescue) let me know. I am here for you. I also have a new book out "Confidence".
With Love, Laura
