I’m sure that my loved ones and “peeps” that are closest to me are not surprised to hear that every time I see extreme weather hitting any region of the world, my thoughts immediately go to the homeless people and animals that are sure to be affected.
As soon as the weather professionals began their dire warnings of this current “arctic blast” that is hitting parts of country really hard, my heart went to my toes with worry over what would happen to those without shelter.
Little Elsa is one of those poor souls…am so glad she is safe, but my worry continues about those that are still, literally, left out in the cold…
Bless the homeless, this day and everyday, keep them from physical and emotional harm, fill their hearts with hope for the future and for today, comfort the homeless as they walk their difficult paths. May I know that anyone, even me, can be homeless.
Bless the homeless with enough food to sustain them, with enough warmth to shield them from the elements, with the power to wrestle personal demons and win, with the will to go on, and build their lives again.
May hope touch each homeless heart, spirit and life, let the kindness of others bring lasting benefits, bring freedom from addiction, illness and misery, open their humanity to include & embrace themselves.
Bless the homeless with self acceptance and love, spark their imaginations with belief in the future, bringing the possibility of a better life, a safer life and a more secure life.
