Thankful Number 16

I am thankful for a roof over my head. Yesterday, as we went out to our car to go to church, here is what we found:
It's not a soft dusting of winter snowflakes, no, it's ash. I'm sure most of you know that there have been many wildfires around LA. Devastating fires that are taking the roofs away for many, many families. I think about 1000 homes have burned in the past week or so. As I saw this ash, covering my car, I said a quick prayer of thanks for my roof. Even if it is over 50 years old...I thank my lucky stars that I still have it, and I pray for those who have lost their roof. May they have another roof very soon.
