Love God, Love Others ~ Our Family Motto

I've been trying to find a beautiful photo or piece of art to hang in our home that would remind us of why we are here {not necessarily here in Australia, but here on earth}.  This thought: Love God, Love Others - Serve God, Serve Others has been on my heart for awhile.  It comes from Mark 12:30-31:

"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind,
and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
And the second is like namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself,
There is non other commandment greater than these."

Since I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, I decided to go to Picasa and see if I could make one myself.  I'm going to send this photo off to be printed on a canvas (minus the 'photography by Jen Bauer').  Can't wait to hang it on my wall!

Great photo!!! Was this taken somewhere here by any chance? Looks pretty similar to the view at either Dripstone or Lee Point ...

Good eye! It was Dripstone.
