Didn’t think i had time for a hike, but i love hiking right after it’s been raining. only time the l.a. sky is clear! decided to try a verdugo mountain trail i hadn’t tried before - heading more to the west side of the mountains, and headed up to la tuna peak. (not near the canyon of the same name.) not a popular trail because there was no one! although the bottom of the trail was filled with garbage and graffiti. it seemed kind of bleak at first, but once you get some elevation, every mountain is beautiful. lots of fire damage here, with lots of undamaged houses. amazing job, firefighters! #thankyoufirefighters#latunafire#verdugomountains#burbank#clearsky#gorgeousday#nationaltakeahikeday
Many thanks to friends who participated in glenlyon winery and two amigos wines club's "gathering of gratitude" party this past weekend. over $15,000 was raised for our local fire department. thank you to all who donated near and far, we are beyond grateful. lexy's mother-in-law peggy has designed beautiful hand made cards, and lexy is putting together thank you notes for our first responders, if you'd like to include a note send it to lexy!!! #thankyoufirefighters#lexystoastwines#lexystoast#bubbles#glenlyonwinery#glenellenstrong#sonomastrong
“great faith on october 8th”🙏🏻 through the fire and the smoke, your words were heard; they healed, sealed and spoke.
glorify and magnify your great power and hold us still. through the night, hold us tight, weaving us together in your sight.
through the fire and the smoke, though we were weary and tired, you sifted us all as you spoke.
refine us into sparkling gold, through your hands as they mold, strengthening what remains, just as you told... tend your flock, tend your sheep, strengthen our love, let it never go cold.
build your mighty rock, bind us together hand in hand, for your family and your plan.
build us up one by one, unite us in your highest love, holy spirit burning as one holy fire, yet gentle as a dove.
bless your people, bless your land, fill it with your kindness, grace and love; through the fire and the smoke, may your presence be upon us all who seek you lord just as you spoke.
may you be made known in every tribe and every tongue, great is thy faithfulness will be sung.
sifting through the night, finding many souls won; burning bright, humbly telling each and everyone, of your goodness and saving might, holding us tightly through the night.
shining embers, for your great glory, will be the only important story, for when we were tested; through the fire and the smoke, through the ashes and what was sifted, the night our lives forever shifted,
all that remains is love's greatest story of your great glory, that was found on october 8th. and what was found was great faith.
