Prayers up for you all in Paradise, Finch!
Having been within VERY close distance of one of the largest Southern California fires last fall, I can say that prayer works. Pray for the safety of those firefighters, they are a rare breed and I’ve never seen anyone work as hard as they do and risk their own lives to save a complete stranger’s home. God bless them all!
P.S. If you have any firefighter outcamps/stations near you, buy as much foot powder as you can afford and drop it off for them (their feet sweat horribly in those boots and the foot powder will help keep them dry as possible). The firefighters down here were very thankful for it.
Just saw your post number 4. It must be hard to watch from so far away. Prayers up again.
