The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him. – Proverbs 23:24 NIV
My husband is the CEO of Heading Home, a nonprofit that helps the homeless population in New Mexico. We took our son to my husband’s new office in Albuquerque, and the new office overlooks Coronado Park, a homeless encampment that the City plans to shut down.
I hope that by giving our son a glimpse of homelessness will instill an appreciation and a compassion for those who do not have as much as we do. We are truly fortunate to have a roof over our heads.
The Lord sees the homeless even though humanity is tempted to look away. He knows each person by name. Amen.
