Wildfires may be just a newsflash on Long Island where the cool fall air does not signal a water shortage. But these are perhaps the two most significant issues of the American Southwest. Water is the most ignored at-risk commodity in the artificially lush Los Angeles area that has literally made water run uphill as it carelessly drained the water recourses of the state. In parallel, the recent rash of suspicious fires is a scary reminder of the death and destruction that sears through the region each year. The tinderbox of homes and trees are clearly at the mercy of nature and sociopathic arsonists testing skill and daring of the first responders…. the thin line of defense against wildfires.
About the Book: Tunnel Visions
Working 5 miles inside a water tunnel in 1971, Willie Carter was one of 17 men killed in a methane explosion. The ensuing underground fire burned for two days before Los Angeles firefighters could attempt a rescue in what became known in California as the Sylmar Tunnel disaster.
Tunnel Visions, a work of “faction,” blends fact and fiction, weaving together the historical facts of the Sylmar disaster, the current struggle for control over California's diminishing water supply, and a fictional plot to attack Los Angeles' water delivery system.
Tunnel Visions occurs on a single day, during which Nick and Cindi experience a series of harrowing events as they attempt to stop an act of eco terrorism.
Kurt Kamm’s expertise in the parallel issues of water and fire educates his readers in the telling of a fictional story laced in facts … providing a deeper understanding of the men and women across the country who fight the fires … and the politics. au

They failed everybody that lives in the city of Benton Harbor. There was no evidence, no witnesses , no nothin. the jury failed the people. We must stand together and fight.

Meet author Richard Tiller. Richard will be chatting with me about his book, Tough Conversations with the Heart of Jesus.
About the book:
If you will ever have to face another tough conversation, this book was written for you. Tough Conversations with the Heart of Jesus offers a Biblical perspective on how to anticipate and engage in these encounters in a way that will achieve the best results for everyone involved. The key to success in tough conversations lies in the heart. Skills are important, too, but if you have the right heart for tough conversations, the skills come more easily. Jesus shows the right heart for tough conversations. The biggest obstacle to success in tough conversations is fear. Eliminating fear changes everything. Jesus shows how to replace fear with courage, anxiety with calm, weakness with strength, insecurity with confidence, and pessimism with optimism. Tough conversations have been some of the most difficult challenges that human civilization has faced throughout history.

I pray that God will enabled you to further open your eyes and ears to Gods' word through The Real Deal Bible Study. We will start with the book of Genesis which means "In the Beginning" and close with the book of Revelation, the Greek word meaning "Divine Revelation".
In Luke 8:17, we learn all is revealed, "For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad."
In Mark 13, Jesus warns us to ready our self, pray and watch because no one, not even he, knows when the end time will come. "Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is (Mark 13:33). Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I foretold you all thing. Have you not read?
“Walking with God is to stand where God stands, and to fight for whom God fights: the poor, the weak, the powerless and the defenseless. Walking with God is to have the courage to know that fear and trepidation before the might of the powerful is overturned by the fear of the Lord! Walking with God is to understand, without doubt or equivocation that justice is what Yahweh requires

The video has gone around the world. At the 107th Holy Convocation, Supt. Earl Carter preached a controversial message about sin and the alternative lifestyle. A young man took the courage to declare his deliverance and the world laughed at him. Do we owe him an apology? We are going to explore this situation and come to an understanding about this whole situation.

Life is astounding! It is a glorious thing worth seeking and embracing in all its glory! This is my witness even at this time of shifting from this world into that of the mystic.
I read a book that I got from my grandchildren whose story had been remembered by me only for its singing and the beauty and innocence of Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, Babes in Toyland. I had read half of it to my grand daughter at an appointment and I was not really impressed. Because of its historical (in my history anyway) significance I finished the book on my own. I was taken back by the profound symbolism that I found there.
It really defined life as I see it today at 58 as a lifetime Christian and 8 month old in the study of A Course In Miracles. I want to share it with you from start to finish first reading. I will be reading from an edition retold and illustrated by Toby Bluth.
I will go into the symbolism I see on another day. For now please enjoy this Christmas classic as my gift for your holy days. ;) Love, Christa-Ann
