Feeding the Homeless

Yesterday, while in bed before school, I was praying, like I try to do everyday and God put this homeless man on my heart.  I see this man from time to time when the boyfriend and I are going to his house, and I can't help but feel incredibly bad for him. Anyways, I was praying for this man like I felt God wanted me to and then I felt like I should take him some food. I texted the boyfriend about it and we came up with a plan to make spaghetti (because how often do they get real home cooked meals?) and take it to a few people.  This morning, we bought ingredients and went back to my house to make the spaghetti.  When it was ready, I put it into six different containers to hand out. I had the boyfriend put silverware and napkins in a sandwich bag and we also gave them a bottle of water.

The first person we gave food to was Bruce, the guy I was talking about.  He was so kind and appreciative.  I actually don't think I would mind talking to him again some day (even though I didn't really talk to him).  He actually holds a sign that says "Poetry for Food".  We helped him write it out today on a Little Caesar's pizza box and we also kind of decorated it with a smiley face heart and a bible verse.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.  - 1 John 3:16

Did I mention that he is on youtube?

We also gave food to his friend, but she wasn't there at the time. A man laying near the library and two other women. We only gave away five because we couldn't find another person so we ate the sixth one ourselves. It was pretty delicious spaghetti, if I do say so myself. I really hope they enjoyed it!


  1. The More I learn about you the more I deeply respect you. This was a really nice thing to do. It makes me realize sadly that I dont talk to God as often as i should, an di should because it does help. It makes me realize that i'm to lazy sometimes and i should help, I do when i can but i should do more. Hmm Thank You so Much :)
    P.S. I like your fashion sense.

    1. I've fallen off my routine sooo much since this post. I can definitely tell what dramatic of a difference a month has had. Hopefully this coming month, I will start reading and praying again. I kind of miss it.
      P.S. Thank you? xD
      I pretty much wear whatever is comfortable, I guess. Pajama Pants, FTW. I'm obsessing over shorts now that the weather is getting warmer though.
