It’s Sunday morning and I just found a new blog called “Old Digger,” created by Margaret Cloud. This photo is her with her husband, Charles. Her most recent post, “Honoring the Homeless,” made me pause to learn more than I thought I already new about this dire situation. I urge all of my readers to take four minutes, right now, and really read what she has to say. You know the old adage, when we join together and work as a unit, we really do make a difference.
Here is my response to her post:
Your post came at an appropriate time, when most of the world has celebrated the holiday season. I pray many times throughout the day, because there is such a desperate need for prayers to be answered.
We tithe regularly, and a major portion goes toward Catholic Charities, who are forever helping the needy. We did animal rescue for years and still feed homeless kitties. We give to the poor and homeless, and even helped a child have a cleft palate operation. We donate to preserve our wildlife and the environment.
After reading your post, you have impressed a new reason for us, as a country, to try to figure out how we can help more. How we can do something in our towns. We live in the Washington, DC metro area, and I just do not understand how … after being such an enlightened country during the second half of the last century, that the situation of our beloved country has come to this pass.
Thank you for writing this because I look on it as a gift, the voice of an angel calling out, to be not only listened to, but to be heard.
