City lights behind a fence of dreams...On tonight's hike I saw a guy standing off to the side, eyeing me. It appeared as though he wanted to say something but kept chickening out. I knew what was up. As I approached him I removed my ear buds and asked "do you want me to take a picture of you?" "Oh no" he replied. "I mean...you don't have to...but since you asked." "I'd be happy to" I replied. "I actually love taking pictures." We then proceeded to have a mini photo shoot. I directed him on where to stand and how to turn his head.
When he saw the pictures he loved them and was in absolute disbelief that a stranger would take the time to help him get that perfect Instagram shot.
Tonight I learned that, no matter how insignificant my talents and interests, if I stay open and available God will use them to bless others. #cityofhope
