Most of us probably have an idealized view of home, much as presented in this picture above. Home is belonging and safety. Home is warm and comfortable. Home is a happy place.
But lest we forget, not everyone has a home to retreat to and for far too many homeless people, home is just a memory or maybe a dream.
It is OK during this Holiday season to curl up by the fire with a cup of cocoa and appreciate the warmth and love of your home, but don’t forget to share what you can to help those who do not have a place to call home.
Thank God for your home and then thank God for the opportunity to help those who don’t have a home.
