Most of us are with family, around a huge spread a the table, sitting in front of a warm fire -
thankful for all God has given us.
The names in the title of this post are homeless men and women.
They may find food today… but just like yesterday they will have to search for it…
A few will be invited to churches to eat a great meal and even fewer will go to homes of volunteers to celebrate Thanksgiving.
But most will sit in a tent or in a homeless shelter thinking about Thanksgivings past, and the love ones they shared it with.
The High temp to day is going to be 39 - and the low 27…
I'm in my home office and the heat is on and I am toasty warm…
I have nothing to complain about…
Some of our homeless friends will be in front of a fire - only to keep warm or perhaps to warm a hotdog or some ramen noodles -
that is if they have food at all.
One camp in Nashville is urging their group to save on food stamps so they can have their own feast today. That camp will feed around 40 - and who ever else wants to join them…
The hunger of the homeless is everyday not just this day.
They are hungry every day.
They are cold every winter day.
They get sick just as we do…
They get tired just like the rest of us.
They are people just as we are people.
and we can't forget that.
Today the heroes of the streets are Father Charles Strobel - Ingrid - Lindsay - Steve - Melinda - Johnathan - Nathan - Rachael - and her sister Ryan and his brother - Bobby - Craig - George - Irene - JoAnn - Tom - Jordan - Jon - Jeff - Ming - Dina - Feeby and her mother - Daniel - Kathy - Paula - Mia - Cindy - Lisa - Sherry - another Sherri - Gibson Cage - Jeff G - Komail - Judy - Barbara - Fred - Dot -
and the list goes on and on of all the people who support and work with the homeless.
Please perform an act of kindness for someone in need today…
and then do it again tomorrow and the next day and the next.
You will be richly blessed.
… and please say a prayer for the names at the top of this post.
Activists for homeless - inmates and the poor of this world.
