Just A Nobody

This blog was started to share the journey of what God has called me to do, serve our friends whithout homes. A long the way it has also become part of my journey as well.

I was standing talking to someone, when she came bouncing down the sidewalk. Her eyes lit up and she grabbed me, giving me a big old hug.

“Do you have any idea how much we love you guys?” she asked. "Okay", I reponded trying to figure out what she was refering too.

She went on to say, “Out of all the people who serve in this town, out of all the places we go to eat, there is only one place where we feel like we are truly loved. We can show up for dinner on Saturday, but what we really receive is love. Love that no one else shows us.”

Those words of hers have been playing over and over again in my head and I think of those who come down to the park and give so much of themselves. Whether it is every week you come down, once in awhile or help in other ways you all have a part in showing our wonderful friends that they are Loved. You love where no one else would love and you truly are a reflection of God’s love in the world. Thank you for allowing Him to shine thru you and know that there are many forgotten people in this town that love you more than you will ever know!

You have such an amazing capacity to Love Denie. I have personally seen it in their eyes when i was up there with you. There is not only a huge amount of love for you but they respect you as well - that's quite uncommon... Thanks for sharing your friends with me -
