As I look through the photos, I ask myself "who is she ?"
is she some ones mother or grandmother?
What did she do with her life ?
What has she experienced ?
at the time , all we could ask our selves was "what is she doing here?"
so many questions, but no answers.
She arrived one day to one of the projects we were working on .
she sat in the middle of the room and watched us work for about an hour. she was probably thinking
"who are they ?"
are they some ones children or grandchildren
what are they doing with there lives
so many questions, but no answers.
Its so easy to get locked in or focused on the task at hand, and we can miss what is going on around us. We need to be like Peter and never be in to much of a rush,or to busy to stop and help those that we pass at the gate beautiful.
Но Петр сказал: серебра и золота нет у меня; а что имею, то даю тебе: во имя Иисуса Христа Назорея встань и ходи.
Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."

Okay....I meant to say "try to find her" not "tried to find her" jet lag has me living in the "past" tense still.
