It’s been a long, hot, dry summer! My azaleas are wilted almost every day and we have long since given up on watering the grass in the yard! I don’t know if there is enough water to save it! I have even started driving along and watching the horizon to see if there are any smoke clouds from the wildfires, too. Checking to see if they are close to homes of friends and family.
I can’t imagine being a volunteer firefighter right now. Working a normal day job then being called out, at all times, to fight fires not knowing if there will be enough materials or budget to make sure everything is taken care of. It must be physically exhausting as well as emotionally exhausting.
I don’t know if words are enough to let them know how much we appreciate their time and efforts so remember to pray for our firefighters and first responders. Make sure they know how much you appreciate them and pray for their safety, and while you are praying…. remember to ask for rain, too!
Isa 58:11- The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
