In the midst of economic, social, spiritual and psychological challenges in our daily life, there are angels stepping forward to alleviate suffering. The angels donate their time, financial resources, food and love. They are inspired by inner guidance, which is God in action. They are led by spiritually from within. They see and observe the helpless and needy and are moved by their inner spirit to help alleviate the suffering. It’s the inner knowing and acknowledgement of the people needing help and assistance. The angels do not expect in return. they give from their heart. lately, I have been seeing few homeless people begging for money while I am driving on some major street corners in Las Vegas, Nevada. Many of them just standing around with a cardboard sign “Homeless”, “Hungry”, and “God Bless”.
I do carry a phone number of Las Vegas Rescue Mission in my car and advise the homeless person to get some help instead of begging on the street corner or at a super market parking lot. Few times I have seen some homeless men at fast food joints parking lots. Some of these men have mental and psychological problems and neglect to receive care. Occasionally I see few women asking for money at parking lots. In many USA states there is non-emergency phone number. For Las Vegas it is 211. When the number is dialed, the caller gets a visit from the help provider and refers them to appropriate agency for food, shelter, clothing or medical care. The helper even comes to meet on a street where the homeless person is standing. Some of these homeless people are reluctant to seek help from the helping agencies.
I also carry in my car some energy bars and soup cans (with easy to remove the lid) to distribute to homeless when I see them at street corners. I found the dollar stores have affordable energy bars and soup cans. The angels are known to volunteer at homeless shelters in the dining room or at their thrift discount stores. The angels are inspired and motivated to reach out to others. Everybody is a prospective angel. If you currently are not participating or involved helping the homeless who are hungry, why not jump in and reach out for them? It’s great for the soul and the receiver is thankful. It helps the community as well.
