The Son confers with the Father one last time before stepping out of Eternity to save mankind.


Stylistically inspired by some of Nannan Zhang's earlier work.

On of the most beautiful Catholic Churches inside and out that I have ever seen.


Today, Gesù Catholic Church remains the spiritual center of downtown Miami. As the oldest church in South Florida, Gesù invites all to visit this historic landmark that has been serving South Florida’s Catholic community for nearly 120 years.


The Fathers of the Society of Jesus have been instrumental in the establishment of Gesù Catholic Church from its inception. Gesù Parish was established as a result of the large Catholic community present in Miami. The original wooden church was built on land donated by Henry Flagler, and as Miami began to grow the need for a larger Church became a necessity. In 1921, the first cornerstone of this concrete and steel structure was laid to suit the needs of the growing Catholic community in Miami.


For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Is the Lord God who is the All Powerful,

who was, and who is, and who is coming.

“No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened.”

― C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce


“I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now...Come further up, come further in!”

Waldino "Never Say Never"

Someone handed Jesus the book of the early preacher Isaiah. He opened it and found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the Lord is on Me. He has put His hand on Me to preach the Good News to poor people. He has sent Me to heal those with a sad heart. He has sent Me to tell those who are being held that they can go free. He has sent Me to make the blind to see and to free those who are held because of trouble. He sent Me to tell of the time when men can receive favor with the Lord.”

Luke 4:14-19

Isaiah 61: 1-3


One of the biggest blessings during a trip to Cambodia. Here a heartfelt greeting. This elderly lady lives on "Jesus Street", so named by a nearby missionary. Several people lived in in houses no bigger than 10 x 12 feet. Alone, these people are undoubtedly are the lingering legacy of the insanity of the Khmer Rouge years of 1975-79, when the regime murdered about 1.7 million or 20% of the population. Many of the the "lucky" who survived were single members of destroyed families.


Two videos with mission pictures:

Hillsong, “Praise Him”

Hillsong, “Children of the Light”


Another mission trip will likely follow. Join in. DE COLORES.

Go and make followers of all the nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to do all the things I have told you. And I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”

Matthew 28:19-20


Imagine, the following song has millions of hits on YouTube, but the Spirit just introduced it to me Sunday night:

"Light Up the Sky" The Afters


Light light light up the sky

You light up the sky to show me You are with me

I can't deny

No I can't deny that You are right here with me

You've opened my eyes

So I can see You all around me

Light light light up the sky

You light up the sky to show me

That You are with me

Never-ending power. Spirits soar as the heavens open!

C3 Church - Undivided


Lord pour out Your spirit

Come down in Glory

Open up the Heavens on us God


Open up our eyes to see

The things that You see

And not our circumstances

You have touched my lips with fire

My sins forgiven

So here I am send me, Lord



Savior, He can move the mountains.

Yardenit is the traditional Christian site for baptism and it is believed that Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist near this spot.

'Hell' is a bad translation of 2 words: 'Sheol' - the grave; and 'Gehenna' - name of a Jerusalem area where a lake of fire consumed the city waste. #truth All die []. All shall resurrect when the Kingdom comes, and be taught justice by Jesus & his Elect. Those who disobey even then will be destroyed ( metaphor).

God's kingdom is like a jewel merchant on the hunt for excellent pearls. Finding one that is flawless, he immediately sells everything and buys it.

Matthew 13:45-46


I spent the night looking for some video reference to this. All seemed off mark. Although many interpret Jesus as speaking in parable, nothing is more direct. Let go to what distractions hold you hostage to a temporal existance. Set your journey towards your heavenly home.


After some searching, the search led to a song with captures the essence of Matthew 13: 45-46: "This is My Desire" Michael W. Smith

Lord, I give You my heart

I give You my soul

I live for You alone


Every breath that I take

Every moment I'm awake

Lord, have Your way in me


13 August 12. The night's rain brought reprieve from the oppressive heat and humidity. By 10:00 am, the sun regained its overlording ways. Here, sunlight sparkle, refracting in a most unique way, as light refracts through rain water collecting in a large lotus leaf. Look closely - heaven shimmers in the distance.

The Escape to Egypt

13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”

14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

Matthew 2:13-14

Candles for Mother Maria at Basiliek van Onze Lieve Vrouw ten Hemelopneming in Maastricht.


Early on Sunday morning, even before the sun had fully risen, these women made their way back to the tomb with the spices and ointments they had prepared. When they arrived, they found the stone was rolled away from the tomb entrance, and when they looked inside, the body of the Lord Jesus was nowhere to be seen. They didn’t know what to think. As they stood there in confusion, two men suddenly appeared standing beside them. These men seemed to glow with light. The women were so terrified that they fell to the ground facedown.

Two Men: Why are you seeking the living One in the place of the dead? He is not here. He has risen from the dead. Don’t you remember what He told you way back in Galilee? He told you that the Son of Man must be handed over to wicked men, He must be crucified, and then on the third day He must rise. Luke 24: 1-7
