True Inspiration

Hey guys, I came across something today that moved me so much I had to share it with you. As I was catching up on my blogs, I came across a post on The Lettered Cottage that featured blogger Shelly Owens of Good To Be Crazy. She shared a brief background on their family, and I was so intrigued that I clicked over to her site to find out more.

Shelly and her husband were living out their ‘American Dream’ in Atlanta with their two children when they suddenly felt like God was calling them to do and be more. Long story short, they adopted two children from Uganda and started a charity called SixtyFeet, which is dedicated to improving the living conditions of the orphan children in Uganda. I admire these people so much, and reading their story literally brought me to tears.

What a wonderful revelation, to realize that our lives are about so much more than the trivial things we concern ourselves with on a daily basis. I want to use the things the Lord has blessed me with to make a difference in the world. It’s far too easy to get wrapped up in my own life and forget about the needs of others.

Thank you for the reminder, Shelly.
