I had every intention of posting a "normal" post today. But after watching a huge section of Colorado Springs burn last night, it's hard to focus on plot and character.
Yesterday, the Waldo Canyon fire grew from 5000 acres to over 15,000 acres, burning an unknown number of homes and businesses as the wind drove it into the city. Many friends are in the terrible situation of knowing the fire burned through their neighborhood, but not knowing if their home still stands.
At the same time, today is my 25th wedding anniversary. How do you celebrate one thing, while you mourn something else?
I appreciate everyone's encouraging words on the blog and on Facebook. I feel so blessed. I'll leave you with one last image from my friend and neighbor Kristy Simons. She took a photo of the smoke plume we saw from our town yesterday, and it's amazing to see a face in the cloud.

So, a day to celebrate and mourn. Do you ever have days like that?
