Lovers share a sacred decree to seek the Beloved.

If you're a lover of beauty, you will appreciate JPG Magazine, as I did this morning after stumbling into this magazine online. The About page of the Magazine reads, "JPG is for people who love image-making without attitude. It's about the kind of photography you get when you love the moment more than the camera.. It's a showcase of brave new photography"

Check out Issue 20 of JPG Magazine which is themed as Beloved (photos of loved ones from every corner of the world) and Issue 19, is Faith that features an interview with a priest, an image of Mecca at full capacity, a shot of a spiritual guide at Sturgis, devotions and other examples of Faith from around the world.

In the article the writer shares Smith's daily prayer, a simple but profoundly grateful whisper to God. "God, you are so good to me."
