It’s been a lovely morning here at Hope House! Everyone is all smiles at the sunshine, no one is cranky or loud. Then there is this:
A client comes in to intake and announces that he now has an address. His smile is huge and he is so thankful for Theresa Meurs, who not only works at the Opportunity Council in the Homeless Service Center, but also volunteers on Mondays at Hope House. He states that it is because of Theresa that he is in housing after an extended period of homelessness—his joy is palpable and contagious.
Into the intake office walks one of our faithful elderly donors with a question about what we need—while this client is still in there. He offers admiration for her large cross necklace and they have the most touching moment contemplating the Holy Spirit together……
Where else can you work that offers daily evidence and influence of the Holy Spirit? Love, love, love my job!
