Our prayers are with these people as they watch their homes and businesses, being destroyed. We pray our Lord will send the needed rain, to aide the firefighters in their work.

I have been hearing about these fires on the news. 2 years ago the company my husband works for had their terminal almost completely destroyed by a wildfire.

They are really spooky. But, I live in Oklahoma and we deal with tornadoes.

I guess every area in the world has it's own unique disasters to deal with but I must say that it does seem as if California has had more than it's fair share the last few years!!
