?Give unto them beauty for ashes the oil of joy for mourning the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness . . . that he might be glorified.? ?Isaiah 61:3 KJV 

Lifting my straight wool skirt above my knees I took off into the night. ?Oh God! Help!? I cried again and again as I ran over chuckholes on the dirt road. It seemed my feet barely touched the ground. Pitch-blackness surrounded but up ahead I could see the light of the McCalls? house. Looking back I almost fell?our house was fully engulfed in giant flames leaping and vaulting like a huge malevolent beast. Don?t look back?aim for the light!
