SHORT PUMP, VIRGINIA

After residing near the Short Pump area for the past two months, I realized that though I understood how much cultural and ethnic diversity existed in the area, I had yet to reach out a hand and meet any of the faces I saw. In an effort to put some names and a few stories in the arena, I tried–with a few friends, of course, a "Humans of New York" type project. I am amazed at the variety offered by a little shopping suburb of Richmond, but just as sure as ever that our Father God is the most imaginative and talented creator.

"You search out my path & my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways...I praise you, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well."  Ps. 139.3,14
