"God and the firemen" is the people's cry;
But when 'tis out and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the firemen slighted.
~Author unknown, from The Fireman's Journal, 18 Oct 1879
Yes wildfires come in all ways, but it is how we handle the loss or tormoil that really counts.
Why not take a step today to go to someone providing a service like firemen, police, military, etc. and see what you can do for them? Stop by their station and ask - what they could use, a meal? Blankets? Toys to give children they run across? Or perhaps you may even see if it is a neighbor that may have trouble - an elderly couple or widow - what wildfires could be going through their lives as they age? I bet they could use a helping hand, grocery pick up, lawn mowed, etc. We get so caught up in our own lives and the hustle and bustle of this world, we forget our fellow mankind.
Think about what is important in your life. As many right now can attest to - you can lose it all in flames in a matter of seconds. Pray for the firefighters and all those people losing everything. Think about your blessings.
Tell me, what would you grab in a matter of seconds? What are those items most important to you? Send me a comment!
Until next time....
Update Today - - Yet another fire broke out, this time nearer my home. When will this stop? Pray for rain!
