When Nikki and I married we took a quiz called “The Strength Finder” by Tom Rath. It shows you your top 5 strengths and ranks them from strongest to weakest. Mine were the following: Connectedness –  People strong in the Connectedness theme have faith in the links between all things. They believe there are few coincidences and that almost every event has a reason. Ideation – People strong in the Ideation theme are fascinated by ideas. …

Churning Light - The Daily Haiku - Aaron Blakeley - Blogger - Writer

Exploration runs in the veins of humans. We explore our world, we explore each other and ourselves. There is one mystery that I have found that satisfies but is always an ever running spring of fresh discoveries. God’s infinite horizons are forever churning with light.

There is a lot of things I could say about him. I think I will stick with I love you.

Kina

What can I say about my foster children that can even be uttered with words? Though difficulty may abound and your life is quite complicated you are still so very precious.

Sometimes when I consider this world, our cells on up to our relationships, I am stunned. Believe what you will of creation whether it be a literal seven days or the cosmic dance of creation condescended to us as seven days. Our universe if a finely tuned watch and it is only the Makers order that keeps it in check. Both in his verbal order to exist and his organization of ever single atom and physical …

Shadow Rest

Nature can be so dangerous, a cliff, fog bank, tornado, avalanche; you name it! Nothing man-made releases the same amount of energy as nature left to its own devices can release. Stars explode, planets are cracked and melted into balls of lava in the void of space, yet in all of this God is not only in control but infinitely more powerful than all of these natural events combined. Truly his wrath is not only …

I have a camera with a surprisingly good macro lens. I was playing around with it on a recent hike and came across some moss. In this tiny little forest was a beautiful complexity that when viewed with our naked eye just looks like green specks. A beautiful vista contained within another beautiful vista. Is this not how our universe is no matter how far you zoom in and no matter how far you zoom out …
