I am a Writer, Poet, Therapy Dog Mom, Homeschool Mom, Nana, and much more. My days are full, but there is always time for writing and reading. It is my prayer GOD will choose to use me in the "craziness" of each day.

A month ago, I was hiking in the mountains of Virginia. I came across this natural bird condo. I was drawn to this birdhouse condo of sorts. Look at all the holes in this tree where the birds live.
I watched the birds come back and forth and I thought about the bird houses my husband has put up near our home. The provision of shelter is often taken for granted. My own home is more than I could have ever dreamed, asked, or imagined and I am forever thankful.
There are those who proudly live in grass huts, small apartments, and homes of all shapes and sizes all over our world. Then there are those who do not have shelter at all. They are exposed to all the elements. Some choose to live a life of homelessness, but in our current economy there are many who have found themselves homeless and did not choose this path.
Today, I pray for each person affected by homelessness and/or hunger. This is a day to consider giving beyond your normal gift to your local food banks and shelters. If you have never given before, now may be a day when you can start. The smallest donation goes a long way. Recently, I learned the food bank can stretch a $1 donation and multiply it by 12, because of their buying ability. If you do not have any spare assets, because of your own situation you can continue to pray. Prayer does change things. It moves mountains. Do not think prayer is a "small" contribution, because it is NOT.
