Shadows of Divine Things

My Photo
Location: Texas, United States

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

Excellent Quote

Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

I'm Published

Wow! One of my Flickr photographs of the Dallas Mavericks was chosen to be published in the Dallas Schmapp Guide. You can see the photo in the guide at this link. The photo itself is below.

I'm curious as to why they chose this picture since it was taken with a point and shoot digital camera and was taken from a pretty good distance. I had a much better photo posted on Flickr that was an action shot and taken from near center court, and the lighting is better. That photo is below.

Oh well, go figure, I'm just happy to actually have a photo in the guide. GO MAVS!!!
