I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are look­ing for Jesus the Nazarene, who was cru­ci­fied. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.

Mark‬ ‭16:6‬

But he was pierced for our trans­gres­sions;
he was crushed for our iniq­ui­ties;
upon him was the chas­tise­ment that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.

Isaiah 53:5

“Are – are you there too, Sir?” said Edmund. “I am,” said Aslan. “But there I have anoth­er name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very rea­son why you were brought to Nar­nia, that by know­ing me here for a lit­tle, you may know me bet­ter there.”

In response to my post the oth­er day, John Philpin respond­ed with a quote from his Mum. I real­ly liked it so want­ed to share it here for more peo­ple to dis­cov­er.

Mom: “Remem­ber … don’t for­get to write to me at least once a week – even bet­ter – every day.”
Me: “Every day! There wont be enough to say every day!”
Mom: “You will find that the more you write the more you will have to say, because then every­thing is impor­tant. If you only write once a month, there will be noth­ing impor­tant enough to write about.”

Don’t forget to write

As Abra­ham Kuyper once said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human exis­tence over which Christ, who is Sov­er­eign over all, does not cry, ‘Mine!’” And rule with absolute suprema­cy. And though it may not seem so now, it is only a mat­ter of time until he is revealed from heav­en in flam­ing fire to give relief to those who trust him and right­eous vengeance on those who don’t.

Even if I turn out to be wrong, I shall bet my life on the assump­tion that this world is not idi­ot­ic, nei­ther run by an absen­tee land­lord, but that today, this very day, some stroke is being added to the cos­mic can­vas that in due course I shall under­stand with joy as a stroke made by the archi­tect who calls him­self Alpha and Omega.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that who­ev­er believes in him should not per­ish but have eter­nal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to con­demn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

‭‭John‬ ‭3:16–17‬

Pro­duc­tiv­i­ty is effec­tive­ly stew­ard­ing your gifts, tal­ents, time, ener­gy, and enthu­si­asm for the good of oth­ers and the glo­ry of God.
– Tim Chal­lies

“The best” isn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly a prod­uct or thing. It’s the reward for win­ning the bat­tle fought between patience, obses­sion, and desire. It takes an unrea­son­ably long amount of time to find the best of some­thing. It requires that you know every­thing about a pro­duc­t’s mar­ket, man­u­fac­ture, and design, and that you can nav­i­gate decep­tive pric­ing and mar­ket­ing. It requires that you find the best thing for your­self, which means you need to know what actu­al­ly mat­ters to you.
