SD Rescue Mission: Thanksgiving Dinner

“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins?  And not one of them is forgotten before God.  “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” -Luke 12:6-7

Witnessing the compassion, praise, and prayers from people that were serving at the San Diego Rescue Mission was incredible.  Everybody serving was definately working unto the Lord and doing it with gladness.  Both young and old came to this event and were enjoying themselves with good food and music.  What captivated me the most were the children as young as infants having fun with the festivities of this event.  It never crossed my mind how many children here in San Diego were homeless.  Yet, they hold so much appreciation about life if you give them a chance to speak to you about it.  Ironic is how many homeless hold so much more appreciation about life than ones who have too many.  God has never forgotten them.  They truly are more valuable than the sparrows in the world, and witnessing the joy filled in that room is evidence that they, too, believe.
