“In the beginning God created”

Those first words of the book of Genesis hint something of God’s artistic nature.  Ours is a God who delights in the intricacies of the pedal of a flower growing on the side of a mountain for no one to enjoy but Godself: beauty for the sake of beauty.

Part of what it means for humans to be fashioned in the image of God is the desire to share our creations.  

I’m on a journey to create.  Believing every person is an artist of a sort – and I do use the word “artist” loosely, having never had any formal training but with a passion to give expression to my journey I occasionally pick up a brush or a camera.  Please be gentle as you interact with my work.

peace, dwight

The text reads:

“For the secret of a man’s being is not only to live . . .

but to live for something definite.”
