I hear what you're saying Alan...about feeling closer to God when you're doing something you're passionate about.  I feel that way when I'm up in the mountains, in the ocean, or in the vastness of the desert. When I'm somewhere where there are no manmade things in my view, it's like God is right there sitting next to me.  I sure don't get that feeling when I'm sitting in a big huge church.  I'm so glad we don't need cell phone towers to talk to God, or for him to talk to us. :)  I suspect if I had a shop, I'd feel the same way.  :)

So a couple of weeks ago, a guy in our church was explaining our core mission statement (or whatever you call it).  He mentioned 'worshipping God passionately'.  He brought up the movie "Chariots of Fire" and Eric Liddell felt God's pleasure when he ran.

My running days are long since passed but I do feel God's pleasure when I am turning a pile of scraps and junk into a musical instrument.  I seem to be closer to Him in my shop than in my church!  (Maybe more intimate is the proper phrase.)

It's really cool to hang out with Him and create!  At times, as I work, I think of Joseph and Jesus working with wood.  I have modern tools but creating with wood has not changed that much over time.

My advice: Keep chasing your passion! To God be ALL the glory!

I like that, Alan.  Thanks!

That verse is pretty special to me.  It has gotten me through some though times of low self-esteem.  Pretty much, it's like, "You can say what you want.  You can call me what ever.  But I know I am 'Holy to the Lord'!"

The placement of this on the guitar is for me as I perform to remind me who I am in Christ!  Pretty cool stuff.

Thanks for letting me babble.  ;)

Alan,

That's branding I can get behind!

Very nice, Alan.  I love it.

Here's a little reminder of who we are.  The is the neck of my latest build.

May the music I create with this guitar be pleasing to the Lord!

Thanks so much for the kind words.  I hope your therapy goes well. My brother-in-law had second and third degree burns on his hands from an oil fire.  He was told he probably wouldn't regain full use....it took awhile...maybe close to 2 years...but he actually regained full use of his fingers.  Recovery was most successful with the diligent painful physical therapy, and of course the answer to many prayers. I have found many small blessings in recent days...one being this site.  Pretty cool to be cruising along surfing the net, reading about CBG's and to find this little chapel site when I did.  I had been on this site several times before, but I didn't see the chapel site...until I really needed it. :)  It put a big smile on my face...one of those little unexpected blessings. Thanks to all who post and maintain this page. :)
