What it’s Really Like to Be Homeless: From an Educated Woman’s Point of View

It can happen to anyone of us… I was the kind of person who went into a fast-food place and ordered two hamburgers; one for myself, and one for the woman sitting on the sidewalk outside. I was the one who made sandwiches for the guy who went through the dumpster outside my apartment. I was the girl who, when I was about to go on some crazy new diet, would clean out my entire kitchen of food, and take it to the homeless guys next to 7-11 down the street…

We’ve all been exposed the seemingly growing population of homeless people, wherever we go. From small towns to big cities, they seem to be everywhere now. As we rush off to our jobs or appointments, we see them sleeping on bus benches, wandering around aimlessly on the streets, and panhandling in front of what seems to be every establishment we enter. We’re amazed (and sometimes amused) by how dirty and disheveled a human being can allow themselves to get. We might even be humored by watching someone carry on a lively conversation with themselves, although we are not completely oblivious to the fact that they suffer from a serious mental illness. It’s also not difficult to reason that some of them have an obvious substance abuse problem. They come in all different ages and colors; some are teenagers with purple hair and tattoos, some are old men with decades of…

Muslim-Owned Restaurant Offers The True Spirit of Christmas.

If this isn’t love…what is?

Kindness Blog

A Muslim-owned restaurant in London is offering a three-course meal to homeless and elderly people on Christmas Day so that “no one eats alone”.

Shish Restaurant, in Sidcup, is asking local residents to spread the word of its offer and has put up posters saying “We are here to sit with you” on 25 December.

The restaurant urged people to share its plan through social media – where the initiative was widely praised.

Vicky Lanfear wrote on Facebook:

“This is the most selfless gesture I have ever seen and they should be recognised as a pillar of the community.”

Suzannah Harris added:

“What a lovely gesture; a restaurant that gives something back instead of merely seeing Xmas as a time to cash in. Will definitely visit in the new year if ever in the area.”

Linda Leach wrote:

“There is still kindness in this world. Amazing people.”

Will You Be The One?

Have you ever looked deeply in the eyes of a hungry man? Today as you sit around your Thanksgiving table, and as you partake in the various variety of elaborate dishes please enjoy every bit of it with a thankful heart. I know that today is a special day and you are all very excited to share it with family and friends. However, amidst your excitement and joy please remember this:

There are people in your surrounding areas who are dying of hunger.

So who will be the one to say a silent prayer for them? Will you be the one? Will you take a minute or two to arrange a small plate with all your goodies and deliver it to someone who needs it right now? Continue reading Will You Be The One?

Don’t Forget About The Homeless

Every now and then I would come across people who are homeless and suffering, and it would break my heart. Then I would wish silently for the power to change their lives and ask God to touch the hearts of the more fortunate people to extend a helping hand to those in need.

I just don’t know what life has in store for me. I have seen people who had everything lost it all in a blink of an eye. And the sadness of it all is that the people whom they thought would stand by their sides turned their backs on them.

So when the world forget about them, what are they suppose to do? When all hope is lost, who can they turn to? Continue reading Don’t Forget About The Homeless

A Taste Of My Love

Share Love

I’m Broke…

SO

I borrowed a dollar

To give to the child with the runny nose

Who is crying in the street

Because he has nothing to eat

AND

I borrowed another dollar

To give to the homeless man

That has no pillow

Begging around the corner

THEN

One more dollar

To give to the mother

That can’t afford a doctor

For her child that has cancer

AND

The last dollar

I gave to the teenager

To feed her child

That has no father

YES

I know it’s not much

It was just a taste of my love

Now I’m smiling

And my heart is rejoicing

Love In The Street…

Daily Prompt: Street

LOVE, when it’s freely shared without expectation, but rather from a genuine place within, is beautiful and sweet. Genuine love is contagious and when our hearts are overflowing with  PURE LOVE,  it radiates everywhere we go…especially in the streets.

There are people in the street that are aching to feel love. Most of them left their homes feeling distressed, confused and miserable. A home where love does not resides. But a pleasant smile, a nod of the head and a bright hello can penetrate their souls and re-fuel their energy; giving them hope and courage to face another day. Continue reading Love In The Street…
