Does the first post on a persons blog always need to say "Well, I'm starting a blog..."? If so, that's an easy enough way to start out a public diary, although it's not exactly how I would like to start mine. Let me rather start by saying this blog has a purpose, and that purpose is to connect more with the creative world. I hope to explore more of this blogging world and see what other artists and designers are doing. I plan to use this space to dialogue about what I see in the world. What I see that I like and what I see that I do not like. I secretly hope that everyone will love my blog and then someday it will help me become famous. I also hope that no-one reads my blog so that I can freely write whatever the heck I want. Since only one of those two can come true, I'm going to bank on the first.
So, hello world wide web. I've known you for a long time and I hope this blogging thing will really prove to me that the time I invest in you is not a waste (although I have my doubts).
Time to close, so what better way to close than with the word of the Lord? Recently I've been visiting the book of John on most days. This is the loudest thought in my mind as of recently:
John 16:14 "He (the Holy Spirit) will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you."
What a gift to have the Holy Spirit who reveals to us the Father. What a gift to have the Father God send his Son Jesus freely as a ransom for our sins. "For there is no other name, under heaven, given among men, by which we must be saved!"
