What a day! I had a conference all day. Then I volunteered at a free clinic in downtown Norfolk. I had a lot of thoughts about people and where I have come from, where I am going as I walked around Oldtowne Portsmouth. My thoughts were that I have been tremendously blessed. God has given me everything good in this world. I look around and see not only the poverty but the loss of direction and hope in the eyes of other that it makes me sad for them. I feel like my life is beautiful and that God has kept me and preserved me from the evil of the world. I'm sure that my good parents and nearly perfect wife has A LOT to do with it. But I can't but think of these words "If ye keep my commandments ye shall prosper in the land." I wonder how much better off the world would be if they would listen to and follow the word of God. So this is one of the many churches in Oldtowne Portsmouth. I spent around 45 minutes walking around and took photos of at least 5 churches of various denominations. Each one had its own beauty.
