As Dollywood employees cleaned up Tuesday after a close call with forest fires, one man says he found something many are finding inspiring in the midst of tragedy.
Isaac McCord posted a page from a Bible he says was found under a bench in the park. It was badly burned but still preserved some verses providing hope, centuries after they were written.
Here are some verses from the page.
The day of the LORD is near, the day when destruction comes from the Almighty. How terrible that day will be!
To you, LORD, I call, for fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness and flames have burned up all the trees of the field.
Even the beasts of the field pant for you because the water brooks are dried up,
and fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand
McCord says he plans on framing the page.
