Inspire Me Monday #148

Hi friends and welcome to Inspire Me Monday, hope everyone had a nice weekend!  We have been getting crazy amounts of rain which is not normal for San Diego but very much needed.  I felt so bad for our family visiting from Chicago, trying to get a little sun, no such luck.  The good thing is I’m slowly organizing one room at a time, while I hunker down in this crazy weather.  Have a look at last week’s features!

Meet Our Adopted Syrian Refugee Family

I’m excited to share with all of you that we have adopted a Syrian refugee family through Heart4Refugees here locally in San Diego. Watching the horrific and heartbreaking news and feeling so helpless I prayed that somehow our family could help. When we heard about this local organization we knew it was our calling.  Watching the millions of refugees that were forced to flee their homes and countries we couldn’t sit back, we had to do something!
