I am actually finding it really difficult to deal with the fires. The emotional aspect of seeing it everywhere is exhausting. I really feel for everyone involved, for the loss of lives and homes and security, for the families and friends left behind and the communities in ruins. As I was walking with Charli the other morning we had the "Elvis" fly over and it just reinforced how close this was to us. Then yesterday a fire was deliberately lit in the bushland in the next suburb. Being in the house with only Charli and no car and seeing all the smoke everywhere, smelling the burning.....it was quite a scary experience.
I continue to pray for everyone involved and that those people who lit the fires are caught and brought to justice.
