Looking to the future
A Community Center is being built. It gives room for quality educational programs and gatherings.
For twenty years they have fed, given legal assistance and health screening to any coming for help. This is a place that extends blessing and assistance to others.
Going inside didn’t feel right.
Leaving wasn’t easy.
I turned around to look again. I’m glad I looked. I’d parked far away. Up a hill, under a tree. It was a perfect moment. People arriving, sharing with friends. Clear morning sky, a temple and a “mountain tree.” There isn’t a day I don’t miss the mountains. There was a sight, a gift just for me. Took one camera click. Then, I could share that moment with you.
