when i am hanging out with my neighbors i feel great joy in my heart. they are hard-working humble souls who consciously rely upon God for everything.. they have very little material possessions to distract their hearts from their Creator. i love being around them because i feel the Beauty of God in their hearts, their eyes and their smiles.
here are a few photos depicting the life and environment in which my friends live..
