InSPIREd Sunday - Immanuel Lutheran

To my fellow InSPIREd Sunday participants - I was unable to visit blogs last week. I having been living in the midst of a vey large (250,000 acres) wildfire that caused so much damage to our community. Over 300 houses in the Methow Valley/Pateros, Washington area were lost in the Carlton Complex fire with one reported fire-related death. It was truly a firestorm and the largest fire in Washington state's history. I will have pictures to share in a day or so.

We were without power starting last Thursday through yesterday around noon. What a relief to have our power restored! Unless you have to live long periods without electricity, it is very easy to take it for granted.

But back to InSPIREd Sunday.
