I love to walk around my neighbourhood. There is so much beauty in the people, the colour. the buildings, the life. And the glimpses of hope that spring up from between all the grime, the brokenness and the hurt remind me of what God is doing in this world. In the midst of all the brokenness and pain, God is busy with his work of restoration, hope and reconciliation. Sometimes you have to look really hard too see it but there in the middle of all the death is the tiny hint of green. I love to walk as much as I can because it slows me down long enough to see what can only be seen at a slower pace. Beauty it seems revels in the unhurried pace of the walker.
A beautiful piece from the master Freddy Sam
London based street artist David Shillinglaw (aka Dodie Boy) did this piece in Woodstock
What makes this even more amazing is that it done on a stippled wall!
