When God Smiles…

As a photographer, I have learned to observe the very subtle changes in a person’s expression in slow motion. Like the breaking of a smile that I can often induce with a joke or a facial expression of my own. And it is such an awesome spectacle to witness. I remember as a child wanting to sit in front of the oven with the light on and watch the cookies bake. I must say, there is something very special about watching a miracle […]

Thank You God For The Miracle Of Life!

There isn’t a single phase of this process that just doesn’t drop your jaw to the floor. I can remember all four of my miracles and while all were very different journeys, all equally amazing. From the moment you learn you will be a mother or father; To the preparation for the new arrival; Then comes the day God sends this little spirit down to earth and into your arms… And finally, the blessing of family. “This is the miracle […]

Miss Universe 2015: And The Winner Is… (God’s Perspective)

Beauty is in the eyes of the Creator; Not the beholder. What was the Creator of beauty’s take on the events of Sunday night’s pageant?

She Could Not Complain…

During my most difficult challenges, it never ceases to amaze me how a nearly impossible diversion from “what I don’t have” to “what I do have” re-centers me in peace, joy, and gratitude. I have yet to find a situation to the contrary. I do not believe one exists. Even when I felt my glass was empty, I had to realize “I still had the glass.”

Up Close and Personal With Flowers

David Leaser is using new technology and special techniques to capture God’s amazing handiwork embedded in all of nature. His images draw us closer to the detail and color we often miss for many reasons. Without a doubt, with the right intent, innovation and technology can enhance our appreciation for God’s creation. It’s one thing to use a macro lens on a camera to capture the smallest details of flora and fauna. Then there’s what David Leaser does, which is […]

Even If You Didn’t Sneeze…

Unfortunately, overused and under-appreciated. One way we can share God is to share Him by name in the form of a blessing. Nearly every culture, language, and faith holds such a prayer in the highest regard. But somehow, we have reduced this glorious expression of love to a reflex in response to a sneeze. I pray we all share God every day through this expression, even if someone doesn’t sneeze.

A Handwritten Note…

I have to believe that typing shortcuts into a device or simply dictating a message loses so much of the potential to communicate. Three aspects of communication are under attack  by technology. The first aspect is time. Time allows us to fully contemplate and complete our thoughts increasing the probability that our audience will understand what we are trying to communicate. Technology is an enemy of time because the more time something takes, the less effective the technology. The second […]

I Sense God Speaking Mystery…

Our circumstances are perfect in God’s eyes. Whether they are overwhelmed with trial and uncertainty, or filled with total bliss, they are a part of our plan. Hence, we should approach them with blind faith that God is with us, all the time. Wallpaper Download Area Click the appropriate button and save the wallpaper image to your device.

God is the Creator of mystery and mystery creates wonder.

…You Never Know What God Is Going to Reveal…

As a photographer, you never know what God is going to reveal after you press the shutter. Can you find the heart God placed around this lovely couple on their wedding day? God is the ultimate photobomber. He is in every picture!

Only God!

Our God-given Talents… Our God-given talents allow us to build amazing structures that physically connect us. Imagine the potential for us to be spiritually connected.

A Newborn’s Prayer

A Newborn’s Prayer Thank you God for this first day of life. I had a chance to look around today and noticed that Your world can definitely use me. I think I would like to stay and serve You all of my days.

For What Could I Thirst…

It is very easy to go through the day preoccupied with everything that is wrong in our life. Trust, this is what I do for a living! However, that just happens to be my job. But for the majority of us (including me in my down time), it is vital that we pick our heads up and focus on that which is “working” in our lives. The desert season is a time when our life seems barren, dry, and lifeless. We […]

“He Didn’t Tell Me How To Live…”

We have enormous influence on our children even when it seems they are not very interested in us or distracted by the forces of the world. Still, God has tethered them to us and even when they seem least interested, they are learning from us. Let them into our personal world and space where they can watch us at our best. Maybe it’s at the office, or in the kitchen or garden. Or maybe its watching a tender moment with our spouse […]

“In God We Trust…”

The Founding Fathers of the United States knew this much. They didn’t imprint the currency of the new democracy with “In Government We Trust” or “In Gold We Trust.” They knew that the value and security of the republic’s entire economy could only be safe and preserved in the hands of God. Unfortunately, over this country’s relatively short history, the rich and powerful have managed to shift the trust in our economy into their own hands and we are living the […]

…The Potential Of The Day…

Blinds or shutters can close what is inside off from what is outside and vice versa. The moment we awake in the morning we have a powerful decision to make. Will we “open the blinds” of our hearts and minds to see the potential of the day? Or will we keep them closed by avoiding the risks we may have to take, and effort we may have to invest in order to uncover the day’s treasures? God created each of […]

No Man Can Think Clearly…

The emotion of anger was given to us to so that we may know peace. Even when justified, our response to a situation with anger should serve as an immediate signal that we are much better designed than to harbor or carry it. Anger will always get in the way of resolve and levy a tax on your physical and emotional health. Peace is an alternative that is always at hand, and will carry the day as we respond to situations with love, open-mindedness and […]

Dear God. I Know You Are There…

“I Know You Are There Because I Am Here.” by Greg Pai I have been young I have been old At times withdrawn Other times bold I’ve felt rich I’ve known poor It’s loved that I love And ignored I abhor I seek joy Avoid pain Told I’m predictable But can act insane! Often I’m smart Sometimes not so much Occasionally strong Sometimes needing a crutch I can be honest And yes, I can lie Because I am not perfect Except in Your […]

Only God!

Spiders have between two and six spinnerets at the back of their abdomen. Each one is like a tiny showerhead that has hundreds of holes, all producing liquid silk.

Yes Demi! There Is A God!

We don’t need to understand God’s plan. We just need to participate in it and put our full trust in Him. It occurred to me that if we did understand or had full knowledge of it, we would likely get in the way. Sometimes I really don't understand God's plan. I guess that's when you need to trust him the most. — Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) December 7, 2015

You Must Be The Change…

What are you waiting for friends! 🙂 Contribute your God-given gifts to impact the world. Our talents, skills, and resources are multiplied when they serve a purpose beyond our own needs. God put a “You” in Us, not in Me!

I Am Africa

I Am Africa (by Emone Emmanuel; Photo Credit: Greg Pai) I am Africa the brave As strong as the earth The thickness of black Is my gift from God I am Africa the wise The well of knowledge The fountain of wisdom The home of sages I am Africa the beautiful My color is my pride I am the beauty of nature I am a shining star I am Africa the black I am the home of man The first […]

…The Purest Of Human Pleasures

The garden is just one of many ways God reveals His awesome spectrum of color, design, and possibility. It is truly a gift of love for it is boundless just like God’s love for us.

…There Went The Neighborhood.

“We have an overwhelming responsibility to restore our world to the sanctity of the garden the way God intended.” -Greg Pai

Seasons Change (End of Fall)

by Greg Pai Photo Credit: Mo’NY (Sophia, Bulgaria) End of fall Seasons change Rearranged plans and pace Never can find the perfect time for troubles I may face Fears takes hold Touch bottom that’s bottomless Escaped confidence; Surrender all choice Unrest in the unknown disrupting my home An absence of God’s voice? End of fall Seasons change Firmly chained, to mysterious fate Where is trust when it I need it most Why must it come too late Falling leaves depict the end of […]

…Passion Resides In All Of Us.

As sure as our hearts beat, passion resides in all of us. Only when we find God’s purpose for our life, our passion is activated and then… Watch out world!

On Tranquil Pond

On Tranquil Pond (by Greg Pai) Photo Credit: Dan Park (New York, USA) On tranquil pond the reeds of grass atop a pane of glass I stop I pause I dream of moments past Bubbles pop the surface from Koi who serve God’s purpose Such beauty So hard to measure Could it be for my pleasure Oh my great God What a treasure Hues of blue Splashes of green Yellows, browns complete the scene As only God could So pristine […]

Our Version Of Truth…

“Justice” should never be “Just-For-Us.” It should be for all. But it can’t be if truth is not sought. I’m afraid the function of the judicial system is to favor the “one who gets the most marbles” rather than pursing, presenting, and prosecuting the facts. If the latter were the case, why would we need two sides? Wouldn’t we all be on the same side? The side of truth?

Anger Is A Wind…

We can only reach our God-given potential when we trade anger for peace, joy and forgiveness.

I’ve Developed Into Quite A Swan…

Contrary to an aging body, the soul can grow in beauty and radiate the same throughout the world. Just the way God created us.

When Time Flies Still

A photograph has the technical ability to freeze time still.  But a photograph that stirs the emotions has the God-inspired ability to freeze time while activating our mind’s senses and the pumping of our hearts. It is a stillness embodied in motion. “I like it when time is so still that I can actually observe the clock turning under it’s hands” -gp As we train our eyes to behave a bit more like a camera, we will begin to have a greater appreciation […]

Don’t Believe The Hype – Beauty Is Not In The Eyes Of The Beholder…

Beauty is not in the eyes of the beholder (as the world would want you to think). Beauty is in the eyes of the Creator. Oh… If only we had such perfect vision.

“I Do!”

Nothing says I do like “I do!” This picture captured the exact moment and what a moment it was indeed.

Saving For A Rainy Day

“If for only a moment, as I looked through the lens and framed this shot, I was able to dream of what it would be like to cut these wires of bondage and tension, and witness all God’s children ascend into the heavens and into His loving arms. A world free of violence, oppression, starvation, and disease.”

No Such Thing As Coincidence

Coincidence or God’s timing? Let’s ask the more pertinent question first. What is a coincidence?
