Some time ago, I posted this. Today, I feel the same way as I did when I first posted it.
I pushed against the heavy, ice-covered, glass front door
To take a peek into a frozen world.
I was reminded of the many
Who don’t look from a warm inside out,
But have to look from a cold outside in.
PLEASE PRAY FOR THE HOMELESS!
Here are some practical things you can do …
- keep a gift card for a fast food restaurant in your wallet –
it provides a warm place to get out of the cold
(Five-dollar gift cards for McDonald’s are great!!!)
- keep a public transportation ticket in your wallet –
many homeless ride the trains in this cold weather
- support the homeless shelters in your city.
Donations of baked goods, long underwear, warm coats, sleeping bags, and blankets are very much appreciated.
- PRAY FOR THE HOMELESS
“God, open the door of our cold hearts.
Show us how to provide warmth
For those who are freezing.”
