Lost in the Crowd

This little guy was patiently waiting in line with his parents at a medical clinic in Guatemala. He was squeezed in with people all around him with this lost look on his face. Good news, he survived the day.

Make a Joyful Noise

During Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Antigua, the mood is pretty somber focusing on the death of Christ, which is mostly a Catholic tradition. However the real power for Christians is the risen Savior. It is finished! The Resurrection power made a supernatural place for me (Heaven) to live for Eternity.

With gas prices raising more people in the US may take to riding a bike to work everyday. This will present a new problem, were to park all those bike? I'm sure the government will also find a way to tax all those cyclist and parking fees will be at a premium.
