POVERTY AND ME
God has blessed me tremendously and has allowed me to not only be part of the fashion industry in my youth but allows me to still enjoy the industry as a blogger, now that the good looks have gone away, in my eyes.
I am extravagant and a bit ostentatious, but I am also a man with a very deep heart who genuinely cares about the poor…this is the part I hate…I am now in the process of opening St. Elizabeth Ann Seton soup kitchen where I will personally myself feed the poor and homeless, and no I will not be wearing my high end fashion while doing this LOL, but seriously this is a concern that tugs at my heart every time I pass a homeless person on the street or see poor kids in my own neighborhood panhandling for money. As I said God he/she has blessed me and if I do not give back it will all be of naught and I could not sleep at night knowing I have done nothing to help the poor. Am I doing this to quell my shamefulness at loving high end fashion? It certainly is not. I feel I am adorning this temple God has given me, not all of us can do this, true, but for those who can and do I think it gives God glory to shine bright and if he/she has blessed us thus it would be sin not to…this is purely my outlook on the matter…I also make sure I am not CONSUMED by high end fashion…picture it, me in raggedy cheap jeans and a flannel shirt, yes I get down like that too.
