You do know who He is, but that is not the most important question, the question is “Do you know Him?”   God doesn’t want you to “recognize Him”, everyone does that, He knows you, and He wants you to want to know Him!  Recognition is a lot different than a relationship.  A daily, moment to moment walk with Him is the key to success in life, and knowing Him will change your definition of “Success”!

 

God loves you, He wants only the best for you, He has your back, He knows your future, He cares more for you than you could ever understand or even imagine.  Why would anyone not want to have that kind of loving Father as their best friend?  You can’t earn it, you can’t deserve it,  you can’t win it!  A relationship with Him is greater than the biggest winning lottery ticket ever, far greater!  Having Him is the greatest prize, and it can only be given freely, from Him, to you.  The sad thing is, He is offering you and every one else this prize of the greatest value, but most walk away and never accept it.

 

It’s easy.  Recognize that you are lost without hope, that you have broken many of God’s laws.  Ask Him, with a sincere heart, to forgive  you, ask Him if you could belong to Him.  He has never said no, and never will, not if your request is sincere!

 

What are you waiting for?

We completed the Arches-Canyonlands workshop this morning and it went fantastic.  We had a great group of guests and my team out did themselves!!!  Jim, Bill Pekala, and snake were in rare form!  It was really fun to do some different kinds of photography.  On the last shoot we went out out the Green River Overlook in Canyonlands and got just a few minutes of nice light, but we had a blast. am flying home tomorrow from Salt Lake city and will post again Tuesday, so this will serve as the Monday post.  Thanks again to our great group and Bill, Jim and Snake, you guys make feel like a champion!  Enjoy the last take!!!

We did our second night shoot early this morning. from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. and I wanted to share some of the Monochrome images, which sere fun to make!  The Fuji X System cameras allow you to make Monochrome and two different color version of each image, which is handy, here are a few from this morning and sunset last night.

Just went over to Milt’s Stop & Eat and had a burger, best in the world!!!!   This image is not from there, but it could be, it’s a great  throwback place to relive the glories of cheeseburgers past!
