Reflections of Creation

One of the greatest things that God has given humans is the ability to see beauty in the world around us. I have never noticed my dog stop and stare at the beauty of a forest or the incredible colors of a sunset, but these things have the ability to stop me in my tracks in wonder and awe. This website is my attempt to capture some of the beauty and glory of an indescribable God by capturing reflections of Him that I see in His creation.


fade with our voices

For the past hour, I've been listening to the new Jason Gray album that came out today (Everything Sad is Coming Untrue). The album is really good and one of the songs, Fade With Our Voices, stuck out to me. This song made me think of this picture taken by a young 18 year old Dave when I was in Kenya (you can read the lyrics below). I can still see the faces of some of those who live in these houses after all of these years. I hope that your worship is lived out in tangible ways to those in need. If nothing else, please pray and read the Compassion blog you can find linked over the right hand side of the front page of this blog. And please, sponsor a child; it's time for Christians to stop letting their worship fade with their voices.

After all the songs are sung
And our prayers for Kingdom come
Did we bring honor to the words we sing?

Does our worship have hands?
Does it have feet?
Does it stand up in the face of injustice?
Does our worship bow down?
Does it run deep?
Is it more than a song
That fades with our voices?
Does it fade with our voices?

Lord it's you we long to please
Make our lives a melody
That we proclaim when we live in Jesus name

Repeat chorus

So if we raise our hands high
Let us also reach them out
And if we lift our voices up
Let it be the sound of love

Let our worship have hands
Let it have feet
Let it stand tall
In the face of injustice
Let our worship bow down
Let it run deep
And be more than a song
That fades with our voices
...It's more than a song that fades with our voices
It won't fade with our voices(Let it be the sound of love...)

    Awesome post today. I'll be thinking about this a lot.

    I liked the lyrics of the song so much I had to go download the album from! Yes my brother! That is true worship. Worship must be more than a song on our lips it must be displayed in our everyday life!

    Thank you for sharing this. It resonates with my soul.

    Glenn, I'm glad you liked the album. You really should check out his live one, Acoustic Storytime. It's just him and his acoustic guitar and it's amazing. He's funny and hearing him talk for a big portion of the album is just as good as hearing him sing. He talks about struggles with stuttering and being a musician, sings an amazing song about his love affair with the grace of God, and even sings the first love song he ever wrote, If I Were a Dog (funny and awesome love song).

    Acoustic Storytime is a can't miss album if you liked this other one.


the most important part of this website

I enjoy photography and I always find myself wanting more time to be outside with a camera. The idea of posting my pictures was born out of the love for my wife, Alison (, who hates it when I do not take my days off. This website, reflections of creation, is a way to force me to get out of the office from time to time and putting me outside where I love to be. While a creative outlet for me, I hope this is an encouraging site for you, and one which helps point you to the Creator of all this beauty around us. God is so much bigger and amazing than we could ever imagine, and He loves you and me! What an amazing thought! He loves us so much that He was even willing to let His son, Jesus, die as a sacrifice for us. That fact is more beautiful than any picture you will see on this website. I hope you know Jesus, but if you do not, please email me or go to Thanks again for coming and stop by again soon.
