In this day and age when our liberal politicians are so obsessed with being so PC and are afraid of offending other nations or groups of people so that the US of A has lost so much respect, even among our Allies, they need to go back to their history books and learn from our past heritage those things that has made America the greatest nation on earth. “Make America Great Again!” God Bless America this Independence Day!

Caring People

prov-024-01

Sitting here thinking about all the good and caring people in the world. With all the evil that the news media is always portraying it’s sometimes difficult to realize that the vast majority of people in this world are basically good people. Most people regardless of their ideology want the same things in life, i.e. food, shelter, safe home for their children etc. The truly evil people, like mass murderers are a very small minority.

During my time as a Homeless person most people that I met seemed to be kinda apathetic to the suffering around them. They are probably wrapped up in their own thoughts and problems. I know that before I became homeless I never really noticed Homeless People. I supposed they existed same as they do today, I just never saw them.

I could tell many stories of how kind people were to me when I was living on the streets. The many instances when I woke up in a doorway and someone had left me some food and money while I was sleeping. There are also many Christian agencies that provide physical as well as spiritual services to the Homeless. Such as the Church group that provided lunch to the Veterans here at US Vets today. One of my favorite radio programs is “Unshackled” from the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago. They tell of how Jesus can and does change lives.

I’m in the process of putting together my testimonial website in the hope that it’ll be a blessing to other people who have been through similar situations as myself. Plus website design is kinda a hobby of mine so I’m also getting some satisfaction out of the project. So stay tuned for the announcement of its launch. Hopefully soon, if I don’t get lazy and procrastinate. Another of my shortcomings.

Well, I’ll be saying, “Good Bye” for now. May the Lord continue to bless you and your families. Especially all you Fathers tomorrow on Father’s Day. My father went home to be with the Lord several years ago and I still miss him. Also because of my previous lifestyle I’ve missed out on the pleasures of fatherhood or being a grandfather. 🐸

Homelessness

I have an aspiration to become a writer. My main subject matter will be my experiences as a homeless person. I have made a commitment to publish something in this blog each day. I am also involved in writing my autobiography and redesigning my website as a testimony of my life. Also I’ll be working on writing short stories. This is to make people more aware of the problem of homelessness. Its causes and effects and how people get involved in that lifestyle and end up staying there.
A little about my life and qualifications: I’ll be sixty years old in a few months and have been homeless most of my life since I was twenty eight, except during times that I was in some sort of a program. More about various programs later. I have been up and down the West Coast from San Diego to Seattle, the East Coast from Miami to New York and across this great nation several times on a Greyhound bus. I am grateful that I am a Veteran because I have been able to live the past four years rent free in a little studio apartment. Which is a good thing since I am unemployed and broke. So at least now I do have a roof over my head, such as it is. But I am content in my present circumstances even though I wish that it was different. I often reflect on my past decisions and speculate on what my life could have been like if I had made different decisions. Oh well, the past can’t be changed.
I’m looking forward to the decade of my sixties. As I embark upon this new career as a writer I feel a new since of purpose for my life and am excited to be doing something productive. Also I hope to be able to receive some small monetary compensation for my labors. Even though I am mostly doing this out of enjoyment and in the hopes that some people will read my writings and give me some feedback. I feel that I have a story that needs to be told! Well, all you dear readers out there in Cyberspace, keep checking on me and remember that Jesus loves you!! 😁
