National Roof Over Your Head Day

Today is National Roof Over Your Head Day. I thought that was appropriate to post about during the holiday season. So often we get caught up in the whirl of parties and baking and decorating and finding just the right gift, and what should be a joyous season becomes a season of immense stress. We forget to stop and be thankful for what we have.


I’m celebrating National Roof Over Your Head Day by saying a prayer of gratitude for our home. On this gray, chilly, rainy day, we’re warm and dry. Especially in this area, after the August floods, this is a blessing that many don’t have. Homes are in various stages of reconstruction, or have been destroyed utterly. Today, I don’t take the blessing of a home for granted. Whether your house is modern and luxurious, small and cozy, or just an average house on an average street, take time today to appreciate the roof over your head.

Today would also be a good day to consider making a donation to a local homeless shelter or other organization that gives people a place to come in out of the rain.
