Kaydyn’s Story – How I Became a Super Hero

The night the fire happened I was eating at the kitchen table. It was dark, but I had a candle to see with. When I got finished eating I carried the hot candle to the living room and put it on the shelf that was too high, I guess I didn’t get it off the edge. I went to bed with Jaxyyn on the couch and woke up hearing Jaxyyn screaming and saw the fire everywhere. It was burning us, we jumped up running and screaming HELP.

KaydynJaxyyn was hugging me and I was hugging him, we were on fire together. Jaxyyn said I had big black bubbles on my face. We couldn’t find Mommy anywhere it was too dark, so I grabbed Jaxyyn gently by his arms and took him to Mommy’s room because it was the only room not burning. Millie and Elias were in there asleep I opened the window and put Kaydyn & JaxyynJaxyyn out the window and a lady took him. Mommy finally came in the house and came in the room and grabbed Elias and I grabbed baby Millie because Elias was too heavy for me. Then Steven ran in the room and grabbed me and threw me out the window I hit my forehead really hard and don’t remember anything after that except standing in the street and ambulance put us on a rolling bed. Now, I hate candles, I hate fire and Sirens. They scare me. Now I had can’t have any fun for a long time. I wish the fire never happened.

Kaydyn talks about the fire everyday on way home from hospital, I think because the pain he endures in tub is a reminder of the burning on his body that night.

He has more to add every day.

So this is a REAL live SUPER HERO! Taking care of brother and putting him out the window first and trying to help baby sister also before himself.

Thank you Sheila Shelia Whitten Mcnutt for making him this well deserved Super Hero Cape!

Historically Speaking

History teaches us that, when times get tough, we call upon the Lord. He hears us, blesses us, and we prosper. With the prosperity, we begin to find other things that take up our time, and God becomes secondary to our lives. Soon, we are actively worshiping things, creating our own idols, and our hearts forget our God. Because we turn from Him He turns from us, and we begin to seek our own destruction. At some point, we reach the bottom, and we again begin to seek God. And, each time, He answers and reminds us of the simple truth that only He is the true God, and only He can bless us. Then, sadly, we begin the cycle again.

The Bible tells a similar story of the History of Israel. They followed the same process, and because of their failure to maintain their faith, they failed, time and time again. In fact, the Book of Judges details their failings, with God sending judges to bring them back out of captivity 13 separate times, only to have them fail, fall back into captivity, and revert back to God to save them.
