Homeless Care Package {Love is Humble}

I’ll never forget Maria.  I pulled into the Wal-Mart parking lot on my usual errands.  A family standing with a sign at the back of the parking lot caught my eye.  The man held a cardboard sign, with his wife and two little girls.  My heart started beating faster and I knew I needed to go talk with them. 20170625_162534 Continue reading “Homeless Care Package {Love is Humble}”
