Passion. (Five thoughts)

Human beings are designed to be passionate, designed this way to be passionate towards our creator.

What a gift. Not only did God create us able to love, he designed us in such a way that we can experience it passionately.

We all have passions, I would say I'm passionate about music, tea, Lord of the Rings, writing, Apple computers, my friends etc.

And those things are all good things. But I need to remember to keep Christ as my passion, or master passion if you will, that is, the passion that impacts and rules over every other passion of mine, be it writing, music, tea, my friends, and even Apple computers.

What astonishes me is the passion that God displays towards us.

A problem of mine.

I love listening to people talking and as a result I tend to write page after page long conversations. Need to work on that.

(P.S. I'm working on a longer post, but I'm not near finished with it yet.) :-D

On Dry Erase Boards.

I purchased myself a dry erase board yesterday. I find it's a great way to sketch out quick ideas for my story or for drawing things like menu items at a café. Unfortunately it's not permanent so anything you want to keep has to be copied over to something. But still it does help me to "Think Temporary" and serves as a bit of a "Buffer Space" for ideas. It's nice in developing an idea for your story because you can erase things and put in something else extremely easily.
