Tunnels Of Love

These are some of the most amazing pictures of a subway system I have ever seen. So how does one turn a metro system into something visually captivating? Well, it certainly doesn’t hurt when the subject is an architectural phenomenon as are the case in Chris Forsyth’s images. However, all train stations, new and old, have elements that can be pleasing or interesting to the eye. To start, train stations are loaded with interesting parallel lines that all lead to somewhere. […]

Fear Not!

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Got God On My Mind AND In My Mind

This article is easily controversial and many people will have different kinds of problems with it. WARNING: It is not dinner table conversation! Nevertheless, what I find especially resolving is that this mainstream look at how our brains respond when experiencing God seems to suggest that it doesn’t matter what “belief system” we subscribe to; The neural or stimulative effect is the same. This is an excellent validation that organized religion has little to do with how we are wired to […]

When You Are All Out Of Hope

A pregnancy after a miscarriage can be difficult to endure. That’s why this viral image of six moms either pregnant with or holding their rainbow babies is beyond inspiring.

When The World Goes Low…

What Is True Joy? Doing well and doing good not only go together, but are among the secret ingredients of true joy. Not the joy that comes from graduating from college, landing your first job, getting married, having a child, buying your dream car or home, or retirement. Those things are joyful, but they are also fleeting. Their elation will last for a time and will undoubtedly be interrupted by life’s unfortunate circumstances. However, true joy gives us the strength to look […]

The World According To The World. A Frightening Look.

Whatever belief system you subscribe to, I think most of us can agree that civilization is becoming increasingly self-destructive. I suppose we may have been more barbaric in the distant past (and that may be debatable). Yet, has man’s creation of increasingly complex systems including government, finance & economics, health & medicine, organized religion, education, agriculture, commerce, technology, science, communications, media, and transportation, promoted progress for the human race? Is progress leaving anyone behind? Are we eradicating sickness and poverty; improving the quality, […]

Minimum Wage? Not!

You can honor God in all you do. Especially in your profession, whatever it may be. Working for God is NOT a religious position. Working for God is the ONLY position. We can seek, serve, and honor God in every aspect of our profession. Often however, it means comprising our selfish ambitions for success and wealth creation for greater and a more impactful purpose. Always, it means performing our jobs at the highest levels and acknowledging God as the giver of all talent, skill, […]

Sibling Harmony

Too many of us have a lost or strained relationship with one or more of our siblings. These photos should inspire us to rebuild bridges of love with those whom God intentionally enjoined us with to form our family. A sibling is like an arm or a leg. They have a purpose in our lives and we need to have a relationship with them in order to find our what that purpose is. Brothers and sisters are not dispensable. God wastes nothing. […]

Let Us Never Forget the Sacrifice Of Others

When we feel the rain of challenge and distress on our life, remember those who came before us that gave us life or sacrificed so we could have life. Amen. -Greg Pai

Rainy Day Weddings

We have been so conditioned to have high expectations. Many of them aren’t even our own. Like expectations imposed on us by family or friends. Then God throws a curve ball into our expectations and our first reaction is disappointment. So often however, history writes a story grown out of such disappointments that result in glory beyond anything we could have ever imagined. I had my first date with my wife in the pouring rain. It was hardly what we would have hoped […]

London Lightning

Not So Funny…

Folks… This is not a political issue that can be solved by political solutions. This is a human issue that needs to be solved by getting in closer touch with our humanity and the value of our life. I am reminded of the time (I may be giving away my age here) that we were trained to launch under our desks in the event of a nuclear attack by the enemy; Whoever that really was. Anyhow, we have raised generations of frightened […]

What Storm?

Photographers capture splendid, stormy skies. A severe thunderstorm rocked Saskatchewan on Tuesday night. Lightning illuminated ominous clouds that rolled through the province, bringing swells of hard rain, lashings of strong winds and booming cracks of thunder.

Underground art: Stockholm’s colourful metro stations – in pictures. Beneath the Swedish capital lies an intricate web of underground train lines. More than 90 of the 100 stations in the 110km tunnel system, sometimes referred to as “the world’s longest art gallery”, have been decorated with paintings, installations… Underground art: Stockholm’s colourful metro stations – in pictures – The Guardian thumbnail courtesy of theguardian.com

Andromeda Strain

You Have A “Whole” In Your Head

This photo is called “Gimme A Kiss” and it depicts man’s fascination with art. So – Not all of us are a natural-born Picasso. However, God did give all of us an amazing gift to create and be creative. Let your creative juices flow in all that you do. Don’t be satisfied leading just a “left brain” life. Even if that is your strength. God gave you a right side too. And for a reason. To support your creativity, imagination, intuition, artistic […]

Are Clouds In Your Forecast?

Why Smile?

A smile is an expression of joy or delightful amusement. But it is also a way of giving that costs nothing. Smiling, like yawning, is contagious. This is actually a reflex God added to our design. We tend to respond to people with a like expression to theirs as part of our brain’s way of interpreting and understanding what they are feeling. So when you smile, you are gifting that smile and potentially lifting the spirits of another.

Do You Have A Train To Catch?

I know. Easier said than done. But how true and profound. Why are we so preoccupied with getting to the destination and so little attention is given to the journey. From when we are young, we are hammered to get good grades so we can go to a good college. We are convinced we need to do well in college so we can get a good job. We strive to do well at our job so we can climb the ladder. We […]

Red Boots! Red Boots!

Red Boots! Red Boots! by Greg Pai Photo Credit: Greg Pai Red Boots! Red Boots! Just in case Life rains on me through thickening fog my boots you’ll see. Red Boots! Red Boots! Protect my feet from puddled pools, torrential showers, and morning dew Red Boots! Red Boots! I thought they’d protect. Keep dry in the wet. Oh, the comfort I get. But now I regret the trust that I had in boots so red. That kept dry my feet […]

What Does The Desert Mean To You?

What a great perspective from Joy Harjo. Feels like God’s perspective too. Our perspective does not hold weight against God’s perspective. So, while having a perspective is in our nature and part of our creative and strategic thinking gifts, we should always seek God’s perspective for reconciliation to our own. God’s perspective is what we should strive to unearth and embrace because it is rooted in truth and comes directly from the source of creation.  

“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 […]

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 […]

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.”

Closeups Of God’s Creation

Photos that close in on the most finite details of creation or those that are emotionally inspiring because they connect with the heart are what I call “Close Ups” of God.
