YESTERDAY, I did not want to miss posting this!

Firefighters are among my heroes! My Grandpa and Daddy were firefighters, I was blessed to serve as a firefighter in Osceola, Indiana back in the 80’s.

Happy International Firefighter’s Day to all those in AFR and statewide departments who work tirelessly to serve their community with commitment, compassion, and honor we thank you. Your hard work never goes unnoticed and your dedication to our communities is an inspiration to continue our calling to serve. During this historic fire season we are inspired daily by the dedication and interdepartmental efforts to better serve each other and our state.

Gov. Lujan Grisham Requests Presidential Disaster Declaration for New Mexico Wildfires
Request comes ahead of schedule, will get relief to
New Mexicans faster
SANTA FE, N.M. – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Wednesday submitted a request to President Joe Biden and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for a Presidential Disaster Declaration for New Mexico as a result of widespread wildfire activity across the state. Gov. Lujan Grisham has declared states of emergency under her authority in Colfax, Lincoln, Mora, Sandoval, San Miguel, and Valencia counties due to wind-fueled wildfire activity.
“The state has aggressively pursued a Presidential Disaster Declaration for New Mexico, using every available tool and technology to document the damage that we know New Mexico communities have sustained and are still experiencing in order to expedite the process,” said Gov. Lujan Grisham. “I am laser focused on getting New Mexicans the disaster relief they need and deserve, and I am confident that FEMA and the President will grant our request.”
While requesting a Presidential Disaster Declaration is typically a lengthy process that often only begins weeks after the conclusion of a natural disaster, the governor and state officials have been working diligently with federal authorities to expedite the filing process for a Presidential Disaster Declaration, using science and data to show how these fires were so dramatically affected and increased by a statewide windstorm in order to more rapidly meet the required financial threshold for damage and enable federal assistance to be available to New Mexicans more quickly.
The governor’s request for a disaster declaration includes both Individual Assistance and Public Assistance for New Mexicans and local governments affected by wildfires.
Relief requested by the governor in the form of Individual Assistance includes:
  • Housing Assistance
  • Crisis Counseling
  • Disaster Unemployment
  • Disaster Case Management
  • Disaster Legal Services
  • Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
  • Child Care Assistance
  • SBA Disaster Loan Assistance
The state’s request for Public Assistance from FEMA includes Category A, debris removal, and Category B, Emergency Protective Measures, in addition to a request for Direct Federal Assistance. The FEMA Public Assistance Program provides supplemental grants to state, tribal, territorial, and local governments, as well as certain types of private non-profits, to quickly respond to and recover from major disasters or emergencies. Categories A and B are categorized as emergency work that must be completed within six months.
Upon declaration being granted, FEMA will deploy staff to New Mexico to administer the federal assistance programs and support assistance delivery. The application process for New Mexicans eligible for Individual Assistance through FEMA will open following the expected approval of the governor’s request for a disaster application, at which time the state will advise New Mexicans in affected counties how to apply for federal relief. Affected New Mexicans are strongly urged to wait to submit claims for Individual Assistance to FEMA until the disaster declaration is approved in order to ensure they are properly classified under an approved disaster declaration.
Gov. Lujan Grisham has also requested Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant funding for the state to implement additional actions the reduced or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from future disasters.

Today is National Day of Prayer:

The World is at war, Russia is committing war crimes against Ukraine, America is in a civil war, people saying they are going to burn down America if Roe v. Wade is overturned. America is so ungodly, lawlessness spreads all over our country. Oh Lord! We are in bad shape.  Barna research: Only 6% of Americans have a Biblical Worldview, that equals the wrath of God.

Today, millions of Americans will turn to God and observe the National Day of Prayer as war, economic turmoil, plague and political divisions rock our world. Join CBN News for a special livestream event dedicated to exalting the Lord. Here’s what you need to know. 

Ukrainian officials say they have successfully fended off Russian attacks in the east and reclaimed some territory. Meanwhile, Moscow is trying to stop the flow of Western military aid to Ukraine by targeting railroads across the country.


The Federal Reserve will raise its key interest rate by half a percentage point – its most aggressive hike since 2000 – to combat rising inflation.

Hundreds of folks in New Mexico have lost everything in the wildfires. We are drier than a bone, New Mexico is also in a spiritual drought. New Mexico along with the whole world feeling the wrath of God. Evacuation efforts continue for residents in Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak fire area

Matthew 5:13  

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.

The Wrath of God has been present for years in America, many are blinded by it, made it political, put politics before God and made it their god. So many Pastors do not even want to touch a sermon on ‘The Wrath of God.’

Truth about the Wrath of God

I have warned for years that many Pastors put the salt on the shelf and replaced it with the candy jar.

Oh Lord we’re in such bad shape here in New Mexico, so many do not know you Lord here in New Mexico. We pray many will come to you we pray for repentance and forgiveness of sins! New Mexico expects You to bless this state, but we are terrible sinners .Oh Lord we’re in such bad shape my heart breaks, only you can save the state. We murder your children here in New Mexico through abortion and shootings, oh Lord we need you, but many go down the road with Satan. The fires are so bad Lord, many are losing homes and dreams for a better life. So many homes and ranch land have been destroyed. Lord I pray many come to know you through this on going tragedy, in Jesus name we pray, Amen

On May 2, Politico dropped a bombshell, leaking the contents of an initial draft of the majority opinion from Justice Samuel Alito on the challenge to Roe v. Wade, which appears to indicate the impending overturn of the landmark ruling that made abortion legal across the United States.

The article reported that justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett voted with Alito in conference.
