{Snapshot Portrait}

On the bus heading back home after church today we, not unlike EVERY time we get on a bus in public drew some attention to ourselves. This tiny old man, who probably gets his fair share of stares with his miniature stature found Jeff to be fascinating and was almost sheepish in his attempts to communicate with  us. Getting bolder in our time here, I gestured that I wanted to take his picture. He at first was emphatically against it, and unlike most Chinese, I respected that and didn't take his picture. Then, after a minute or two of smoothing his shirt and hair, he indicated that he was ready, leaned in toward Jeff and smiled. Too bad I'm a lousy photographer and caught him looking away. Still, you can tell he smiles a lot, and his happy spirit shines through.

Happy Sunday!
