A Weekly Journal Chronicling My Life
As It Intersects With The Garbage Dump Community Near La Ceiba, Honduras

...and the garbage dump decalres His glory!

at least the views do.

we're getting evening thunderstorms almost nightly here.
it's nice, it cools things off considerably after drearily sweltering days
and it gives you good reason to simply sit on the front porch, drink coffee and reflect.

and this is what we're treated to before the rains come each night.
sometimes i have to force the boys to look up and take stock of what God's given us.
they think i'm insane.
i think they're nuts for not appreciating the scenery so i guess we're even.

on a different note entirely, my refrigerator freezes things like a champ.
after just an hour in the "fridge" part, the water in the pitcher starts to freeze.
the other morning I pulled out a perfect upside-down ice mold of the water pitcher out from within the water.
i was moved to take a picture.

Yes, God's glory even in a dump.

An early church teacher, Irenaeus, said that "The glory of God is the human person fully alive." More recently, Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador said, "The glory of God is the poor person fully alive."

Thanks for seeing God in all the right places.
