It’s amazing that you can generate this color splash from a cell phone photo. When I shoot I want the photos to be as natural as possible so I stopped using filters. So far my Instagram account has been a collection of photos from my daily life in California. I may switch it up in the coming weeks to give it a bit more structure. Stay tuned lovely people. God bless, Matthew.

A Pause for Prayer

A friend wrote this on Facebook and I wanted to share. Reblog if you feel this.

"Rotating blades of rage & depression
Seeking to slash my peace & obscure my direction
As though I’ve forgotten my confession
That Jesus Christ is Lord
So the only cutting should be that of the Spirit’s sword
Performing heart surgery for this cardiac arrest
Due to feeding my soul a whole buncha mess
That I know I can’t properly digest so I attest
To the fact that I need to repent and rest
Why are you discomforted within me, O my soul?
The days of God’s lovingkindness are not the days of old
So where is the faith that is supposed to be humble-yet-bold?
Why do I act like I’ve never been shown and told?
That my Abba loves me in spite of me, this is truth
So the question is, am I living for myself or am I living for You?
May the Holy Spirit convict, comfort, and guide me in my pursuit
By grace through faith, may I abide in You as I bear much fruit
Selah…”

It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.
Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.
The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of  many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.
Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.
There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.
Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.
One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.

Heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. Crazy.
