Guatemala Photo Of The Day – Zully’s Grandmother

Over the past three summers, we have had the opportunity to visit with Zully’s Grandma (La Abuela).  She and her husband live next door to Zully’s family in a hut made with cornstalk walls, a metal roof, and a dirt floor.  This is the life she is used to growing up in Xenacoj.

There is a contentment on her face.  I’m sure life hasn’t always been easy for Zully’s Grandma, but I get a real sense of peace when I look into her face.

She reminds me that contentment does not come from things – from gathering wealth.  True contentment is found in family and in faith.
