A Request


I’m asking everyone that may come across this post to pray for all those affected by the many fires here in SoCal. Firefighters are doing an amazing job, but the winds are not cooperating with them.
As I type, I am NOT in the path of any of the raging fires. Santa Ana winds are shaking my home…you can see smoke from one of the fires in the photo…it was impossible to hold the camera still as I was pushed aside by gusting winds. The winds are coming from the dry-brush covered hillside and canyon behind me.
I’m watching the news…as another fire begins…somewhere I recognize. I’ve been on that street many times to visit family.
Information can be found here about all of the fires in the area.
I will sleep when the winds leave…hopefully tomorrow.

Have been praying for all of you (I have a friend who just started work at Pepperdine this fall) and hoping things come under control soon!

You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers, Triple E. Ma Nature can be a real handful at times. (I'm being as polite as I can...)

You and everyone in the area have been in my prayers since last night. It's so terrible. Stay safe, TripleE.
