PhotosByGil endeavors to capture God at work and our joy when He surprises us. C.S. Lewis called it being "Surprised by Joy". His main tenant was that great joy can't be contrived, it is always a surprise. I have found that:

  • Joy is found in the beauty of nature whether it is a gorgeous sunset or that moment when wildlife looks you in the eye and says 'You are OK. I accept you as a friend.'

  • Joy is found in the interactions between people in a close and comfortable setting - in a belly laugh and in a look of respect or love.

  • Searching for joy is like sowing seed, the more you search, the more you find. Just be sure to confine your search to that which is wholesome.

I pray that your search through this web site will be joyous.

Sincerely,
Gil DeHuff
