Burning Cloud - Photograph by Frank J Casella

January 22nd, 2020

Burning Cloud - Photograph by Frank J Casella

Burning Cloud - Landscape Art Photograph Copyright 2018 Frank J Casella


This moment in time reminds me of how, sometimes, I wish that I could just burn off the clouds over my head ( the weight on my shoulders ).

But then, I remind myself that it is through the storms of life that makes me a stronger person. Every successful person, whether a founder of a company, a Catholic Saint, a single parent, or the the person who's made the greatest impact on you, even if you have not met them but would like to someday if possible, have learned through their struggles.

The late Zig Ziglar, who you know I'm a big fan of, says:


"I never lose ... I either win or I learn."


When we go through storms, in life or with the weather, it's important for those of us who believe to remember to not so much talk to God about our storms, but rather to talk to the storm about our God.  In His time, and in His will, I can tell you that you will see things shift before your eyes.

Just like the picture above, all the things going on at the surface will burn off and rise up into the heavens. .... God will take it from us ... but we have to give it to Him first.

Yes, easier said than done ... The good news is the more you let go, the easier it gets. ... then the more God asks of us. It's ongoing, and we get more strong through it.

Growing In Faith - Catholic Photograph by Frank J Casella

January 21st, 2020

Growing In Faith - Catholic Photograph by Frank J Casella

Growing In Faith

A Statue of the Holy Family sets an example, or symbol, of prayer and teaching the faith – how men and women should relate to one another in complementary ways and how important mothers and fathers are to children.

This statue says to me about structure in a few ways:

Firstly, look at the composition and body language of the figures on top. The details of their hair and body parts, and clothing. The expressions on their faces. A persons hands (artist) did all of this. All of these are types of structure.

Second, there is also the structure of the stand the statue is on top of, it’s size, the message ‘Growing In Faith’, and the shape being round to function with the form of the concrete slab below it, and I see the circular shape to be ever flowing .. how structure, as life itself, is always a work in progress.

Finally there is the unwritten message from this statue. The Holy Family as a model of the ideal family structure. Father, Mother, and Child(ren). How the roll of the family unit works to foster life and develop growing in faith.

Threshold - Faith in the LIght of Dawn

January 20th, 2020

Threshold - Faith in the LIght of Dawn

Threshold - Faith in the LIght of Dawn


“Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”


Here we have a tulip flower that is opening up with the dawn of the morning light.

Faith and hope are just that … believing in the things not seen, and acting as if it’s going to be.

Much of our experiences and struggles can leave us with a scar, as like an injury on our hand so to speak.

Yet the thing about scars is that even though they may not go away, they do heal. As time goes on, and the scar keeps healing, sooner or later it can become not as noticeable ... or be a reminder of perseverance.

Sometimes scars can be from relationships, our lives can be shattered, like a vase that falls off the table and breaks into many small pieces.

The good news is, that with time and healing in putting the vase back together, piece after piece, it may not look the same but can become instead a beautiful mosaic.

This is where threshold comes in. Each experience we have comes with it the doorway to a new day, a new era, a way to look at the past more intelligently for the future.

… A life filled with hope.

I Don't Believe in Coincidence - by Frank J Casella

January 13th, 2020

I Don

"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter." --Ansel Adams


The moon rises while the sun illuminates the tree tops from the golden hour sunset.

I don't believe in coincidence. That beauty and timing like this is to me a sign of God's love in the world. As only He can do.

Whenever I try to do two things at the same time, they both fall short of their full potential. Things line up for a reason, with God there is no coincidence.

I mean, I was walking my dog when I made this picture. But I had to stop walking and make the dog sit, so I could 'focus' to click the shutter.

The lesson here for me, then, is to keep your focus on the main thing, and make the world a more beautiful place to be.

Enjoy your day.

Bold Sunrise Pastel Sky - Photograh by Frank J Casella

Bold Sunrise Pastel Sky - Photograh by Frank J Casella



" When we have nothing to give,

let us give Him that nothingness.

Let us all remain as empty as possible

so that God can fill us. "

- St. Mother Theresa




Only courageous people are known for their honesty.

It is a lot easier to rationalize through life, or make excuses. And when we are bold enough to be honest with ourselves and others, people come to trust us for the truth even though it may hurt.

Likewise, with this photograph, the bold sunrise gives way to the soft colors of the sky, because once we take that first step of being honest, everythig else falls into place.

Sometimes we have to work through the mess, and the struggles, and with hope, but faith, God will show us the way.



" God does not love us because we are valuable.

We are valuable because God loves us."

- Fulton J. Sheen

Morning Sunrise Pine Tree Silhouette



"I know indeed how to live in humble circumstances;

I know also how to live with abundance.

In every circumstance and in all things I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry,

of living in abundance and of being in need.

I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me."


-- Phil. 4:12-13







May you have a great week, and a great start to the New Year!

Winter-fole Branches - Photograph by Frank J Casella

Winter-fole Branches - Photograph by Frank J Casella

Winter-fold Branches

The morning sunrise shines on the soft, snowy tree branches, while illuminating the Fall leaves causing a beautiful backdrop.

This moment in time makes me think how much God covers us with his purity and love, while also illuminating our lives from Heaven above.

I think it is important to be mindful of this as we go through life and work through our struggles and our successes. In the end, it is not about us, but about what we do to bring the love of God into the world.

There is not a more timeless purpose than this for our lives, at least for me, and makes life worth living.


Thanks for reading, talk with you again real soon.

The Greatest Moments of 2019

December 31st, 2019

The Greatest Moments of 2019



As we roll from one decade to the next, I think about in 2010 my being an independent artist was not even a thought.

Today, it is all I do with my photography.

But it is not about my photographs, as much as it is about sharing with humanity.

Faith. Hope. How God Loves the World.

You are reading this because you connect with this mission, and provide it - me - your valuable attention.

Happiness is never found by the person shopping for it. Rather, genuine happiness is the byproduct of making someone else happy.

You have shared this work more than I ever could, and spread happiness into the world, and thus fulfilled this mission.

The words Thank YOU! do not seem to say enough how grateful I am to you and what you do!

The simple moments that made the greatest impact in 2019, at the link below are how they fall into the big picture of this mission.


All Time Best Sellers



A happy and prosperous New Year and decade to you and yours!

Frank
