Homeless: Can You Find Love?

Many single women are under the impression that they will meet the man of their dreams, in the actual place that they dream.

I’ve met people who’ve found the one in the mall, grocery store, even the club. Contrary to public interest and the disproportionate weight that disease may out-way finding love in the club, I must add “the club” as a place that I have heard three women out of their own christian mouth say that they found the one.

I wonder what the odds are for a shelter. The rational part of our minds tell us that any person in a shelter isn’t fit for a relationship. They need to get their issues in order.

Well ladies and gentlemen, I am seeing this first hand. Husbands and wives in the shelter (in separate man and woman dorm’s) meeting in the multipurpose room, and content with their situation. Is this a good representation, of course not.

Addiction to drugs and alcohol, sleeping in tents, feeding raccoons and living outdoors while not on a camping trip, is not by any stretch of the imagination sexy, or romantic!

I have seen a woman who is street homeless call the police to the shelter to get a stay-away order on her boyfriend who, she punched in the face. Now that must be love, right?

I’m a lover. I love-love and I know that God can bring two people together in spite of their lack of finances. I just believe the impossible is possible.

I believe that two people can be mature emotionally, and spiritually, and find themselves in an unlikely place, and be breath taken by each other.

When you look back with people who have been married a long time, they often talk about how they had nothing when they first got married. They built together.

I’m often reminded of my pastors talking about how they started out. They have this old video where he is eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich saying that he is the happiest man in the world! Now they can eat whatever they want I’m sure.

Every relationship starts somewhere and its a powerful testimony of God’s ability to be everywhere at the same time, and the agility of hope.

I believe love can be found anywhere, do you?
