Kenai Fjords Alaska - "From the Beginning, before the World Began"


The Lord brought me forth 
as the first of his works, 
before his deeds of old; 
I was appointed from 
from the beginning, before 
the world began.  
When there were no oceans, 
I was given birth, 
when there were no springs 
abounding with water; 
before the mountains were 
settled in place, 
before the hills, I was given 
 before he made the earth or 
its fields 
or any of the dust of the

Kenai Mountains, Alaska - "My Kingdom is Not of this World"


Jesus said, "My Kingdom is not of this world, if it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders.  But now my kingdom is from another place."  "You are a king, then!"  said Pilate.  Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king.  In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth.  Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."

Without dreams, we reach nothing.
Without Love, we feel nothing.
Without God, we are nothing.

for you will remain.

never be broken, says the Lord,
who has mercy on you.

Ask, Seek, Knock - Matamata, New Zealand


Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.  Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?  If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him?  So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Matthew 7:7-12

“Who is a God Like You?”

18 Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
    but delight to show mercy.

He will again have compassion on us;
He will tread our iniquities under foot.
Yes, You will cast all their sins
Into the depths of the sea

Micah 7:18-19

Who Gives the Sun for Light?


Thus says the Lord,

Who gives the sun for light by day

And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,

Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar;

The Lord of hosts is His name:

Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown - "For Where Your Treasure is, There your Heart will be Also"


Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths an vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:19-21

Shotover River, South Island - "The Eye is the Lamp of the Body"

The eye is the lamp of the body.  If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.  But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness.  If then the light within your is darkness, how great is that darkness?

No one can serve two masters.  Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.  You cannot serve both God and money.

Matthew 6:22-24

South Island, New Zealand - "We Fix Our Eyes Not on What is Seen"

 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far out weights them all  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18
