Jesus Homeless

A few days ago,  seen a homeless man. I  stopped and gave him some change & asked him his name, after I prayed with him.  As I was leaving him, I heard a voice which tried telling me I was an idiot & a fool to do it. I began thinking maybe he wasn’t really homeless.

Today,as I was leaving my house,  I noticed my neighbor had someone raking his yard & cleaning it up for him. It looked like the homeless man. I ran to the store and did what I needed to do. When I was returning and I pulled  into my driveway, I seen the homeless man just leaving my neighbors. It was Josh the homeless man. I called his name and he asked me how I knew him. I smiled & said I remembered him. He smiled as did I. I handed him the few coins I had in my pocket & said God bless you and he went on his way.  Yes. He was the homeless man, and yes, he was most definitely, homeless.  Its not often we get a confirmation of something like this, but when we do, praise be to God. When we don’t, trust in God.

There is a quote I have been holding in my heart for many years and one try to live by.

“See God in all, Serve God in all, Love God in all” – Blessed Maria Teresa of St. Joseph, Foundress of the Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus.

Please keep Josh in your prayers.
