CHRISTMAS HOMELESS

Christmas is the time to be jolly, or so we are told. For the homeless and the lonely it is a bleak empty time. Hearing carols sung, smelling the aromas of Christmas fare and seeing the happy faces is the reality of a world removed for those who are without.  

How can they rejoice in a Savour born who came to give them life abundantly when they are destitute? 

In our home we have made it a priority to pick one person and supply them with happiness at Christmas.

I guess if you have never been alone at Christmas its hard to imagine how it feels.  Believe me, its an emptiness only understood when experienced. It is a feeling of exclusion from society...
In Hebrews 13:5 Jesus says, "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee."
So to be Christ-Like, we need to do the same for the forgotten... Give to the Poor In Spirit Today.

  1. That is such a sweet thing of you, and your family, to do for someone on Christmas!
    I haven't read The Hiding Place yet, but I'm going to very soon. I'm looking forward to it so much! Hope you had a very merry Christmas!

    Blessings,
