... Head Over Heels

A random phone photograph I took from a moving car in London.

I told my niece a story, of how I once fell in love with a boy. I had never seen him or met him. We were countries apart but I stumbled on his creation... a photoblog (I think it was on shutterstock, but I could be wrong) and the more I interacted with his creative eyes, the harder I fell... and then we eventually spoke, exchanged mails and met... Old story!

Basically, the discussion was built around how you fall in love with creatives without ever meeting them. 
You could read a writer’s work and fall in love with the writer... real love, where you see yourself married and living happily ever after. Meeting them on the other hand may not be as impressive after you move past the creative in them.
You could see a painting and fall in love with the artistic mind behind those fine strokes. I don’t often go to galleries, but I am always in awe of those paintings hanging on the walls… sometimes I don’t even understand what they mean, but I am mesmerized by it.

My niece (pictured with me above) fell in love with a poet she’s never seen, his work is quite good I admit, I read his poetry and could see why he is popular, even though his fans don’t know what he looks like, he’s so deliberate about maintaining his anonymity with a pseudo name even in these days of social media, denying thousands of young ladies hanging up his posters on their walls. He’s built a mystery around himself... but people just start dating his words and may have even exchanged vows with those words he’s written in his book and on instagram. Gabs and I were talking about this poet, and I was inspired to write this.

We look around the world and see the beauty of creation.
I see the cloud sometimes and my heart literally leaps out of my chest. I take a lot of nature shots... because I feel I just need to capture the beauty of the moment, something to look at later. It’s sad that I hardly carry a camera around anymore, but my phone is a good enough substitute for those shots. 
I am in love with the beauty of creation, and the creative mind behind it. 

I don’t have to see God to love Him and fall more in love with Him... I only have to look at the mountains, the landscapes and beautiful sunsets, to fall in love again and again.
I see the beauty of His goodness in another human showing me kindness and treating me with respect. I see it in doctors finding cures, and science making discoveries, and teachers finding ways of reaching special needs kids and mothers dropping all for that one kid in need ...

“For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense.”
Romans 1:20 AMP

The above scripture says we have no excuse not to believe and trust this God, with all the evidence around us. Don’t wait to literally see God before you let yourself love Him.
See His creations; the wonder of the birth of a child and be in awe, the wonder of a child learning to live, the wonder of animals in those animal channel documentaries showing them living their lives wildly and freely as they were created to be.
The wonder of it all.... 

A line from one of my favorite songs says, “I can see your heart in everything You’ve made”

“And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapor of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You've made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I”

 So Will I (100 Billion X) – Hillsong Worship

This God, beautiful for and in every situation. Always present… always. When your heart begins to doubt, remember what He’s done in Christ, look at His works, and be rest assured in His love. 


The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
    The skies display his craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
    night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word;
    their voice is never heard. 
Psalms 19:1-3 NLT
