Homes for the Homeless

At the end of our road they are building another city center, to include homes, businesses, restaurants and shopping. I say "another" because just in the past two years they already built up two city centers about a 5 minute drive away. It truly is amazing the amount of stores that are already here. I honestly cannot imagine what else they could put in that we don't already have. Alongside the new places to buy things, the builders are putting up homes to fill with the people to go shopping. It is truly incredibly how fast these homes go up literally overnight.

As Kody and I drove past the new construction, he also was amazed. "Woah!, there is a house over there....hey, there are lots of houses over there." And then came the conversation that has left me pondering for days.
Kody: "They are building new homes here. Maybe they are building new homes in the city too."
Me: "Maybe."
Kody: "There are so many new homes out here. People in the city should come here to live in these homes."
Me: "Honey, homes cost alot of money. That is why the people in the city do not have a home. They do not have the money to buy one."
Kody: "You know what, people should give money to the people in the city so they can buy a home. When we go downtown I am going to bring the money from my piggy bank and give it to they people in the city so they can buy a home and they are going to be so excited."
Me: " Yes, baby, I'm sure that would make them very happy."

And I decided to leave it at that. He doesn't need to know that the money in his piggy bank isn't enough to buy a home. He wants to give out of his abundance and his heart is beginning to ache for social justice. And that is something that makes his mommy's heart sing.
