This mix is mostly Christian music though they can apply to most life situations. This is my second year of being homeless and vegan (two years soon and end of September respectively). I have stayed in four shelters identified as Christian or some kind of mission from Chicago to Denver to Kearney, NE to Houston. There is no stereotypical group found here as you may conjure up images without this kind of experience. It is so difficult sometimes with spiritual warfare that can be of the mind and spirit or the battle of life between the streets and sometimes struggling to keep a place to sleep. Sometimes it feels like a job or recovering or whatever it is you are trying to accomplish is nearly impossible. With daily sermons or speeches, messages, music and or videos, classes on the Bible or life skills, meetings and constant prayer it seems with faith, time and hard work, almost everything is possible. This mix of all the Christian music left of the year and some new ones is dedicated to the Star of Hope Men’s Center in Houston. It exercises strong faith and other specific skills similar to the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago in some ways, but very different in other ways. I was a person who rarely liked Christian music and still am very picky about it, so this is a rare mix along with a rare thing I am doing by letting go of my iPod. This year has been about taking big breaks from the mixes while exploring and understanding other parts of our culture in America and putting what we can into those as we would have with our main passions. I’ll be back with the top ten lists soon.

No encore?

It has been a challenging move to Houston. I had a partial vacation out of the shelters with lots of volunteer work. I even buried a street cat.

Now I am focusing on God and working out the reason I was called to this amazing city.

Bad news is I am selling my iPod to make sure I stay vegan. You can bid on eBay with user TreasureTradeToo. It has a lot of pictures in the mirror because I only have the camera on this device. I am rambling to say there may not be an encore to 2018-7. I used a few tracks from the encore list and it was short, but sweet. Will the year’s mixes end here? Only time will tell. I’ll be figuring out this challenge and others I will try to address in the months to come.
