Happy to be Homeless

A gentleman came to my office the other day and informed me that he will not forget this Christmas.

“Is that good or bad?” I asked

“Good its the first Christmas where I am clean and I can remember it.”

Hearing a comment like that always blesses my heart. This guy is someone who has used our shelter many times, and it touched my heart to hear him be that thankful.

On Christmas Eve we always do a candle light service. We AIT in a big circle, read the first two chapters of Luke and then start sharing what we are thankful for. We turn the lights off and as each person shares they light their candle, this year was heart warming listening to everyone share.
