(The Known God) Post for Day 281 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


The worship of the golden calf of old has found a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any truly human goal.

Pope Francis


The Known God

Life is marked by the perception of worth. The more you place value on a thing the more important it is to you, but have you ever considered why Moses wore a veil on his face when he came back from spending time with God and why the veil of the temple was torn in two when Jesus died upon the cross? And more importantly have you ever wondered why the most sacred name of God is lost to humanity though it is the one that should hold the greatest worth to us all?


Read these verses for the answer and you too will begin to see beyond the veil.


Matthew 1:23 … and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with (Within) US.


John 10:

34 Jesus answered them… Ye are gods

35 …and the scripture cannot be broken


1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I AM known.


2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image


Exodus 3

11 And Moses said unto God, Who AM I…?

14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.


Hebrews 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh


Matthew 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.


John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body.


2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.


Though only a dim reflection it takes time for a child to grow to resemble their Father.

(Smoking) Post for Day 280 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


If you want a midget to look like a baby, don’t put a cigar in his mouth.

~Chuck Jones



I find fire in the mouth is best left to fire eaters and God, because if you see a child smoke and it bothers you then deep inside you know that it is inherently wrong.


2 Samuel 22:

8 “Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of heaven quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry.

9 Smoke went up from His nostrils, And devouring fire from His mouth; Coals were kindled by it.

(Herding Cats) Post for Day 279 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


“Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are God.”


Herding Cats

When it comes to social media people are like cats. They follow links like stings and amuse themselves with small furry creatures. They are finicky and indifferent about what they find to be important and they often suffer from an awful superiority complex. But most of all they are pushy or sound asleep when it comes to the most important things… The truth is the world is not here to amuse you. You are a part of it, so act like you are a part of something instead of digitally setting yourself apart.


Proverbs 4:

25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you.

26 Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established.

27 Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.


(The Sparrow Horse) Post for Day 278 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.



The Sparrow Horse

In Ancient Hebrew the word for ‘Horse’ in the Bible means ‘Sparrow’ for its swift and cheerful flight. It is the joyful means of conveyance of understanding, also known as swiftness of thought. Wisdom is not found by accident but through a driving force to overcome opposition, and so we all, at times, may need a little nudge in the right direction or a carrot to lead the way.


Proverbs 26:3 A whip for the horse, A bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the fool’s back.

(The Practical Cycle of Life) Post for Day 277 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


Karma brings us ever back to rebirth, binds us to the wheel of births and deaths. Good Karma drags us back as relentlessly as bad, and the chain which is wrought out of our virtues holds as firmly and as closely as that forged from our vices.

Annie Besant


The Practical Cycle of Life

The Practical Cycle of Life is not about life and death so much as it is about revisiting the past from the future. More often than not we all return to past wrongs and try to create future rights, or we fall into the trap of trying to take those past rights and create new failures by trying to do that same thing all over again. Life is not stagnate and it is always in motion. The past is gone and the wheel, though it comes around again, has moved on from where it started and if you do not get on board you are going to be left behind.


Philippians 3:

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

(A Quiet Moment With God) Post for Day 276 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


It is only imperfection that complains of what is imperfect. The more perfect we are the more gentle and quiet we become towards the defects of others.

Joseph Addison


A Quiet Moment With God

A quiet moment with God is not a complaining session about others but a self-reflection of God living within you.


Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

(An Interesting Point) Post for Day 275 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


‘Easter’ is a movable event, calculated by the relative positions of sun and moon, an impossible way of fixing year by year the anniversary of a historical event, but a very natural and indeed inevitable way of calculating a solar festival. These changing dates do not point to the history of a man, but to the hero of a solar myth.

Annie Besant


An Interesting Point

Though I do not fully support the quote above it does raise an interesting point. Have you ever noticed that Christ’s birth and death are a type of marker for the solstice? And yet have you also ever asked yourself why Christmas is a fixed day but Easter is movable?


Matthew 27:60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.


Matthew 28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.


Mark 15:46 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.


Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.


Luke 24:2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher.

(False Prophets) Post for Day 274 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.



False Prophets

Just because someone seems to be wise and know all the answers doesn’t mean they really are. If their personal doctrine teaches anything racist, sexist, elitist or anything other than love you are listening to a fool in owl’s clothing. A truly wise person knows they KNOW NOTHING and thus they are constantly growing and learning without pride or prejudice.


Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.


1 Corinthians 3:

18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

(Meet Adam) Post for Day 273 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


And there never was an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.

Neil Gaiman


Meet Adam

Adam is all about change and he has a big heart and he is always ready for action. Through Adam we have all been blessed with life and the possibilities to excel, and from the First Adam to the Second Adam (Christ) this little guy is meant to be a reminder of the wonders we all face in our daily journey.


This is my latest wire creation. I was playing with an idea for a armature type figure that can be posed and worn as a reminder of our actions and challenges as well as the gift of life itself. What do you think? Do you think anyone would want to buy one? If I get positive feedback I will put him up at

After all this is one of the ways we fund our ministry.


1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

(Lost In Two Worlds) Post for Day 272 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


Time moves in one direction, memory in another.

William Gibson


Lost In Two Worlds

Some look to the future while others look to the past… but only in between is reality. Do not get lost in a world that doesn’t exist. Now is the balance is of life and death, each moment must die so a new can be born, and thus we “die daily with Christ” and we are “born again”. This means you are constantly growing by giving up what you think you know so that you may see things clearly without expectations. Expectations are the enemy of peace as they are the offspring of both past experiences and future hopes but they only breed disappointment.


Ecclesiastes 1:

9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
