U.S. Veterans Who Will Be Sleeping On The Street This Christmas. Will You Take One Home With You?
On any given night there are approx. 50,000 homeless veterans with no where to go, and no place to lay their head. I was talking to Jesus, today, and just last week I had a conversation with Santa Claus. They both agreed that we should all remember the homeless veterans this Christmas, and provide them with something other than a cardboard box, an abandoned warehouse, or a city sidewalk. It is easy to for us to say we love and respect someone, but it is often not so easy to show it. Merry Christmas!
Unfortunately, I only have a four bedroom home and my children (2) and their children (5) will be coming home for the holidays which leaves "no room in the inn!"
I currently have two homeless veterans working for me now; one painting and wallpapering and the other doing yard work which will increase their funds for the holidays!
When Katrina happened, we had a two-story commercial building in which the top floor had not yet been leased and I personally went to the convention center and scouted for those who needed a place to stay and brought them back to the facility where they stayed until they were 'settled!' Of those assisted was a married couple, a lesbian couple, a single Federal employee and their children.
I say all of this to say, If I had the room, I would accommodate! Serving those in need is not something that goes lacking in my life!
I ALWAYS ask myself "WWJD?" It comes "naturally" when one is "IN CHRIST!"
And May God Continue to Bless ALL!
And so your answer is no. But you will not be the exception to the rule. Your past kindness will not keep the homeless vet warm on Christmas Eve. Nor will it buy U a ticket to heaven.
If you can't be "charitable" with those you live with, what makes you think you can with 'strangers?' I Jn 4:20 "...for he that loveth not his brother (family) whom he hath seen, how can he love GOD whom he hat not seen?"
GOD knows the heart!
Are you saying that you are not charitable with those you live with? Why?
"Now I am ready to visit you for the THIRD TIME...for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children" (IICor12:14)! Read vs 15-16!
I do the WILL of GOD!
I know 'my place!' Let me teach u yours!
There is no love or charity! Only selfish people, including Christians, who can talk the talk, but not walk the walk. Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! While the image of God lies dead in the streets; adrift in a sea of humanity so bitter and cold.

Are you comfortable saying Merry Christmas or do you say Happy Holidays? Why? Do you know the...right thing to say to the right person? Do you think we have become too Politically Correct?

Just curious why you can't say Merry Christmas anymore? I have never got upset when someone said Happy Hanukkah. The way I see it, someone is just wishing good times based on whatever their background is. I think it's very nice. I'm sure I'll regret the onslaught of religious debates that will...

We amass weapons to defend other countries; raise millions of dollars to send to victims of tsunami, earthquakes, etc. Thirty-nine billion dollars has been spent on a fence between Mexico and U.S., however our most valuable assets are living on the streets. Men and women who have given...

Will you be helping the homeless this Christmas, with a meal if anything?Why not write a hub about what you would do if you had the income, or salary to help homeless folks during the holidays. (Merry Christmas to all & a Happy New Years!)
