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.
