Where there is smoke…

I’d fully intended to go see Fantastic 4 over the weekend and wow you with a review, but the smoke from the nearby wildland fires keep me inside as much as possible. As proof, here is a picture of the sunrise this morning from my kitchen window:

 My request for you is that you pray for the firefighters in the area as the fires have minimal containment. Pray for their safety and rest. There have already been three firefighters who have given the ultimate sacrifice – their lives.


Also, keep the people who have breathing issues in your prayers. It has become debilitating for some.


Above all, even though I pray for relief and rain, I know that God is sovereign and has His plan for Northern California, the state and even our nation. God bless the men and women working to protect others.



Information per CalFire:


Fork Complex, Trinity County, 15,184 acres – 9% contained

River Complex, Trinity County, 12,524 acres – 8% contained

South Complex, Trinity County, 15,026 acres – 3% contained

About sarahb5149

When tasked with how to describe myself, I get quiet, leading people to believe that I am trying to come up with something deep and meaningful. In fact, I am trying to decide which to display without confusing them. I'm a Christian. And that doesn't mean that I simply say it - I love the Lord and have figured out over the years that He knows what He's doing, even when I am stomping my feet or looking at Him like I have no clue what is going on (*hint* it happens more than I'd care to admit). Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a wee lil' thing; I kept my first poem in all of it's stammering, unevenness. Wife and mom, daughter and sister, aunt and Sunday School teacher, I adore the roles that God has given me. A bit of a sci-fi nerd, geek and self proclaimed dork, there isn't much that I won't try at least once...unless it involves mayonnaise because that stuff is just gross. View all posts by sarahb5149
