I believe that one day, the Lord will come back to get me. Hallelujah. If I live right, Hallelujah, I will go on to that righteous place. I believe that one day, Hallelujah, all my trails, all my tribulations, they will be over. I won't have to worry about crying and suffering no more. I won't have to worry about being disappointed, because my God, Hallelujah, is coming back for me. Whether I am a man with a dress and a wig, My God will love me for who I am! I might not walk like I'm supposed to walk. I might not have sex with who I'm supposed to have sex with. My God will love me for what I am! So don't worry about me, worry about yourself. Because as long as God believes in me, I'm not worried about what folks say, Hallelujah.
At the coming season of Our Lord's birth there are special ways to help. There is no holiday line in the budget so we depend on generous donations. As we shop for ourselves and gifts, it would be fantastic to remember the sacrifice Our Lord made for us and try to make some sacrifices for others. Christmas is a particularly difficult time for our teens at the center, perhaps the most marginalized of all the homeless. In a season often associated with family it is easy to see why young people would have feelings stirred up. We are asking for gift cards in only ten and twenty dollar denominations to McDonald's, Target and CVS only. We want to limit ourselves to these three places so teen jealousy does not appear. These gift cards will give our teens some buying power that they do not usually experience. Please send out an email to your family and friends asking for help as well.
