Tammy Tangent Tuesdays
In Honor of the Firefighters we lost: Michael Hallenbeck and David Ruhl
Call for Action: Let’s be the Hands of God serving our Local Firefighters!
Hello Beautiful! I pray you’re having a great week so far! It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!!! This weekly challenge is one filled with compassion while pouring out blessings and much-needed prayers into our own communities! With the serious and out- of-control wildfires burning here in California, we have tragically lost a couple of firefighters while battling this demon. All firefighters are maxed right now due to not only the grief from losing a fellow firefighter, but they’re being sent to other areas to fight those fires while leaving their own families. Not to mention, they’re working longer shifts exhausted just to accommodate for the slimmer crews in order to make up for the overwhelming demands. ♥♥
This week’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays challenge is to go out into our community and shout out a great big “Thank You” to all of the local firefighters who are also our First Responders. Let’s get out and visit our local fire departments and deliver them lots of goodies, along with hugs, introductions, praises of recognition, cards, and words of encouragement. They really do care who resides within their district. Station No. 6 received me with such open arms and attentiveness, I was saddened because I would have loved to have had the time to reciprocate back at them while delivering them pizza for dinner! Next time!!!
♥♥ Since we all need to be appreciated, loved on and poured into; when we share and pour out love into the members of our communities, favor and blessings abound in such a dynamic way. What a great opportunity to bring them dinner “Just because…” ♥♥
Grab your girlfriends, yours kids, your grandbabies, and especially your church body and share the love of gratitude for all they do while being the hands and feet of God! What a great way to model and witness to our kids by giving back and having fun by baking up some goodies, ordering pizza or buying In ‘n Out Burgers or even buying some items at the grocery store and delivering those tokens of love with a smile radiating that Beautiful You!
We must not forget, these brave men and women put their lives on the line each and every day and commit themselves to giving back to their own communities. They are so much more than eye candy in uniform; they have families whom they leave for extended periods of time knowing their lives could be put in danger; they’re also much more active than just fighting occasional fires. They are unsung heroes who are generally always the first to arrive at every emergency scene to assess the patient and situational emergence. They provide all medical care, whether it’s spinal and/or bone mobilization, perform CPR or administer external defibrillator treatment, and they even administer the life-saving epinephrine. If extricating human life, fighting fires and locating patients left behind wasn’t brave enough, they are also subjected to unknown and unsafe environmental conditions that oftentimes compromise their health for life!
I think our firefighters are far more deservant of praise and recognition than most even think about. I am honored and blessed to know a few of them personally and I want them to know just how grateful we are for their service! Let’s show our local firehouses how we can honor each other while we’re still alive through love and service. It takes a community to bring back the unity and being the hands and feet of God is not only rewarding, but it’s sprinkling love and light to a world that really needs to see it! Plus, you’ll make a new friend or two; it’s a win/win situation no matter how you look at it!
Since we have lost a couple of firefighters of our own here this past week due to all these wildfires burning in California, this week’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays is dedicated to our fallen heroes, firefighters Michael Hallenbeck and David Ruhl, who died while bravely battling the wildfires and losing their lives doing what they loved most. Let’s keep their family, friends, and fellow firefighters in our thoughts and prayers! Let’s love, respect and honor those while we can! ♥♥♥
