my Ghanaian neighbors ~ photo display

"Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor and look upon him with a bright and friendly face."
~ Baha'u'llah

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..
