This precious picture leads me to pray for little barefooted children all over the world - that they know happiness but more so that they know the Lord Jesus Christ. For apart from him there is no lasting joy.
The image was taken at a small village in East Kutch – a remote region of India. This area is very dry, the soil here is arid and the inhabitants have to be resilient. The girl truly seemed like a ‘diamond’ in the rough in such surroundings.
