A New Friend

Today I met someone that I feel as if I can call him a friend.

He is not like me, he’s not my color or in my situation. But he is like me, what I mean by that is some of the stuff he has been through I have been through. I told him some stuff that I have never told anyone else. And he listened he didn’t pass judgement, because when I looked in his eyes I so understanding and compassion not pity. He is married with a beautiful wife and 2 daughters. I have never been married or do I have children, but he is like me.

So tonight I have hope for God has heard my cries and provided me with inspiration just by placing someone in my life that I can call a friend. Not for what I can do, but for who I am.

I go to a church called Caldwell Presbyterian. I consider the people that go there my family. I am still homeless but I have hope tonight. The devil was defeated today but he will be back.

But I have hope tonight because now I have a friend.
