Winter squash come in all shapes and sizes and colors. But i've never before seen a Yugoslavian Finger Squash. Until tonight. There's one sitting on the volunteer table here at the Homeless Shelter where 27 people are sleeping on the floor of the Baptist church.
This squash sort of looks like "He's got the whole world in His hands."
And, indeed, perhaps that's what the 27 people who are staying warm tonight think too. Every week when i volunteer, from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m., i receive so much gratitude from so many of them.
Thanks to the community, the church and its members, the volunteers, and the homeless themselves, who keep this sleeping shelter in good working order. Thanks to all of us and to all of our helping hands.
