each day is like entering into a culture, a place, that i don't know alot about. by God's precious grace i'm able to communicate, teach, inspire, and somehow befriend those young ones so different from much i've ever known. i'm thankful for maw-maw's flea market that exposed me to an area like the inner city. i was taught growing up, to love those with less. now it's close and personal, a look into these precious lives. many that i hope will see God's love and goodness. when i step back and glimpse at their faces, their struggles, and desire to be somewhere else, i'm softened and reminded, this art avenue to teach is Christ's tool for eternal purposes in my life and hopefully for the students as well.
