Wildfires





Would have been a beautiful sunrise as seen from my front porch a week or so ago.
Save for the smoke coming off Neighbor Mountain in the Shenandoah National Park. 
It's small compared to so many fires around the nation.
But still burning over a wider area. 

It's Hot Hot Hot here on the east coast. 
The Firefighters and Park Rangers, and all others in Colorado and Montana putting these things to rest are heroic. 
To say the least.

Keep them all in your Prayers, will you?

I hope that the fires stay well away, and that they are contained to a small area. Such devasation elsewhere. Stay safe.

Impressive array of garlic in the last post

Yes indeed . . . I can't imagine the endurance firefighters throughout our land have had to face in the past few weeks. Dreadful heat here in Michigan . . . very, very dry . . . I feel concern regaring the abundant use of sparklers, fire works permitted with these dry, heat temperatures!

They are amazing. I can't even imagine how hard their job is.

Oh Marme, this post means the world to me... My best friend/ex-boy (Kate knows the story, haha) is a wildland firefighter and is getting ready to dispatch to CO soon. I have seen firsthand the life these men and women live and know how much prayer and support means to them! Thank you for this sweet tribute to the work they do!
