My last, but not the last post from my trip to Guatemala this past summer. Not the last because I will return, but the last in this particular series. Thanks for stopping by.
In this post you can read about this stunning location. I have a deep love and appreciation for the wonderful people we partnered with in Guatemala, and and equal love for this beautiful country. Thanks for stopping by.
at this ripe young age can it be three score as i turn each page i know less not more and the more of less i know it seems it’s about letting go i let go of the boy i used to be though he still seems to want his own way so still letting go of my selfish ways that boy won’t go away that’s okay i’m learning letting go i let go of just me “i do” means now “we” can it be two score and there is so much more of letting go that i need to know for “we” letting go of seeking me in her letting go of smashing mirrors with my pride letting go of thinking it’s better to hide letting go of staying inside my head letting go of keeping my heart to myself i guess the long slow road of letting go of self letting go of expectations of well everything and everyone letting go of just taking letting go of just faking that we’re all okay i pray i practice well all the lettings go’s that wait for me ‘cause someday soon the last let go will come into my room and i want peace and i want to know that all those other letting go’s will help me see what waits for me is an eternal embrace it really is amazing grace He never has and never will let go of me
Welcome to this episode of Guatemala: the photoblog posts. Today’s episode: Why we went to Guatemala. If you are just tuning in, this is the second post from a recent trip to San Lucas Sacatepequez, Guatemala. I was part of a team who volunteered from our church to work at this church: Iglesia Galilea. We helped pour the concrete floor for their sanctuary. This was all done by hand! We helped make the concrete (we went through 340 bags of cement), then brought it inside with wheelbarrows, then the Guatemalans finished the floor. It was HARD work, but so rewarding and fun. The team was outstanding, but I was never able to stop the mixer from spitting cement all over me! Coming in the next episode: volcanoes! Thanks for stopping by.
Each late Spring, early Summer I say to myself: “Yay! Summer is coming. Looking forward to slowing down a bit.” Well, still looking forward to slowing down a bit! It has been just as busy as any other summer, but a wonderful summer as well. One of the ingredients that have made this summer wonderful is an unexpected missions trip to Guatemala.
So, this is the first in an as yet unknown number of posts on my Guatemala experiences. I am not a traveler, so I tip my lens cap to those travel bloggers out there. (For a fantastic travel blog check out https://julesvernex2.com)
These images were taken on the grounds of the home we stayed in. Our home was in San Lucas Sacatepequez, a beautiful town located about 7,000 ft above sea level. Stay tuned for the next episode featuring the reason for our trip to Guatemala. Thanks for stopping by.
Tried to take some images of what I will call “spider nets.” The are flat, and I see them on the grass and bushes. Just amazing! Thanks for dropping in!
Decided to capture some light that was dancing in front of me this afternoon. Major bonus points if you can figure out what I photographed. I’ll post the source of these images in a few days. Thanks for stopping by.
That is all. Thanks for stopping buy.
…don’t you think? Thanks for stopping by!
