Thursday November 29th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      The Butte County Sheriff’s Office released body camera footage from Deputy Aaron Parmley on Pentz Road in Paradise, California, Nov. 8, 2018. In the middle of the Camp Fire, Parmley was helping evacuate the Feather River Hospital. Flames came up on both sides of the roadway and his car broke down.
      He turned on his body camera to capture what he thought were his last moments. He survived.

      Just blown away by how kind this man was to rescue these poor dogs that were left to fend for themselves.

      “……..In the early morning hours of November 8th, Jeff Evans stepped out of his Concow California home, alongside his 92 year old dad Chuck, to find the sky bright orange with clouds of smoke obliterating the sun. Winds were whipping the fire into a hellish inferno headed right to his home of 22 years.

      Chuck drove a quarter of a mile and realized there was no way out, the flames were already there.

      With heroic courage, father and son dug fire breaks and put out flames that threatened their lives, as Jeff Evans mom sat inside and waited through the hell that had entrapped them in their home. Jeff and his dad knew that day could be their last, but they were going to give it everything they had, and they did.

      The fire passed, leaving the small town of 710 in utter devastation.

      Jeff was in an evacuation area, and he could have chosen to leave, yet he stayed. As he drove through the burned out homes of his neighbors, he saw one dog, then another, and another, and then more. The dogs would be frightened, and thirsty and hungry. He took them home, to have a place to sleep and to eat and be safe.

      Each day he went out to find cats and dogs abandoned during the fire that came so fast that people could not get to their animals, or could not bring them to safety. He posted on community sites that he had the dogs and they were safe, people could claim them and be reunited. Those that were burned, he cared for. Those that were afraid to come with him, he brought food…..

    The Holy Apostle and Evangelist Matthew of the Twelve.

    Saint Matthew wrote his Gospel in Aramaic (some say it was in Hebrew), but it was later translated into Greek and shared with the Faithful within the Holy Tradition of the Church as the first book of the New Testament.

    He shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Holy Land and in the surrounding lands before enduring a Martyric end to his earthly life in Ethiopia.

    Saint Matthew is commemorated today – November 16th – on the traditional Orthodox Church Calendar.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    This was recently in APPOMATTOX, Va. Another faithful dog waits for his owner who will never return.

    Just hours after a house caught on fire in the 100 block of Crawley Lane, a dog sat on the front porch, drenched in the rain.

    Appomattox Volunteer Fire Department Chief Jonathan Garrett said a man inside the house during the fire was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

    Garrett later confirmed to 10 News that the man died.

    When fire crews arrived, Garrett said the house was fully engulfed in flames.

    “The fire was seen coming from the roof of the house. When we got there, we found fire in the kitchen area and smoke coming out throughout the house,” Garrett said.

    The home is a total loss.

    “It’s pretty extensive on the inside of the house,” Garrett said.

    When crews spotted the dog, Garrett said they brought the doghouse closer to the front porch.

    “We were hoping he would go in there for some shelter,” Garrett said.

    However, the dog continued to sit outside in the rain.

    “We notified animal control and they will, based on their policies and procedures, come out to see if the dog needs to be taken to the shelter,” Garrett said.

    The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

    Friends remember Lexington Va. Solider Who was Killed in Afghanistan

    LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) – We’re learning more about a hometown soldier killed in Afghanistan this week. According to the Department of Defense, Army Captain Andrew Ross, a Green Beret who grew up in Lexington, died this week in Afghanistan.

    According to an official report, his vehicle was hit by an IED. Two others were killed.

    We’ve learned Ross was due home in just a few months. He hadn’t even been marries a year.

    Friends who live in the area say Ross had been a dedicated leader his entire life. They say his loss is a loss not just for them but for the country, saying they’ll miss the man they called a “Great American.”

    Andrew Ross was one of a kind.

    “He had a different quality and his family does,” said family friend David Miller. “They just have a love for their country and realized what he was risking.”

    They say Ross was a leader even in high school. As captain of the soccer team, he was a standout on the field and in the classroom.

    Another family friend, Robby Jones, said it was no surprise to them he ended up in the military – a captain at that. He knew in high school he wanted to go into the military, and ended up graduating from West Point.

    “His desire to go out and make things better wherever he was serving, it was undeniable,” Jones said.

    They said Ross was on his second deployment to Afghanistan.
    According to the DOD, Ross was assigned to 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He, and his team, were were supporting “Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.”

    Neighbors Miller and Jones said their kids were best friends with Ross.

    Watching him grow up from a toddler to a young man, he became an extension of their family – one they never ceased to tease.

    “Well I’m just gonna tell you this – the boy was a hottie!” Jones joked. “Somebody’s gotta say it, he was very well thought of from the ladies side of the house… There’s stories and they’re out there man and they’re all good!”

    The last story they heard from Ross was just a month into his recent deployment in Afghanistan.

    They say he called all his family friends every once in a while, just to tell them he loved them.

    “You know you’re honored. You know you made an impact,” Jones said, becoming emotional. “So you know, as an adult, to make that kind of impact is cool. Because your respect for him is great and he turns around and gives you the same kind of respect back. And you know that’s special.”

    It’s special coming from a special forces soldier.
    Who’s clearly left a mark on his hometown.

    “He chose a path that he knew was difficult and you know, we’re lucky to have people that do it and he certainly was one of them,” Miller said. “He certainly will be missed by all of us, we loved him very much.”

    For the benefit of any who might read this, being typed 12.31.2018…for the purpose of experimenting with html for sentence indentation, one our commenters who writes poems here suggested that go back to an older article and test the html. I want to post a poem tomorrow early am on the open thread but need to indent the part of sentences that are too long for the first line. So here goes…
