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.

Okay, I've been a Jeremy Camp for a few years, but I'll admit that I haven't hardly listened to his last album, Speaking Louder Than Before. Today while shuffling through 4,000 songs, his song, Healing Hand of God came on. After hearing that song, I am ashamed that I haven't listened enough to this album to even notice this song. It's awesome! So, I want to share the chorus and second verse with you. I hope you have an amazing day, and I hope you know that "If you feel the weight of many trials and burdens from this world, there's freedom in the shelter of the Lord."

I have seen,
The healing hand of God,
Reaching out and mending broken hearts.
Taste and see the fullness of His peace,
And hold on to what's being held out.
The healing hand of God.

I have touched the scars upon His hands,
To see if they were real.
He has walked the road before me,
He knows just how I feel.
When you feel there is not anyone,
Who understands your pain,
Just remember all of Jesus' suffering.

    Great lyrics and thoughts. That's a good reminder.

    And I really, really like this picture. I think it's one of the ones you should enter in the photography contest--this one and maybe the prayer garden one, too. I'm glad you decided to enter the contest. =)

    Silly wife, contests are for photographers! I belong on a Trix commercial!

    For the record, I have not said I would enter any pictures into the thing that isn't a contest. Even if I was going to submit a picture or two, this would wouldn't qualify since this was taken in Texas.

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.
