Why Light of the World Photography (LOTW PHOTO)?

As part of being a believer of God I know that His light has to shine through me and that’s why I started LOTW PHOTO.  His light shines through me, by how I live, the kindness I show others, and who I touch in this life.  As such one of my travel and photography prayers is that God use me to be a light to others by showing kindness and/or helping others while on my journeys.  Kindness to me can be something as simple as asking somebody how they are doing, giving them a friendly smile, or if there is a need and I can do something about it, addressing it.  All for God’s glory, not mine. “You are the light of the world….”(Matthew 5:14a)  “…… let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
