Caleb our example

20130309-065237.jpg

As I was reading the word today I came across this passage… It made me long to be of a different spirit; Just like Caleb was…

It is challenging when we think of what that really means. When we look at the life of Caleb, we see a man who lived by faith and not by sight, he saw the world around him as God saw it, then acted as God would act.

Let us all strive to be the Caleb’s of this generation. Who knows if we might see the real promised land without seeing death!

2012 in REview–2013 in PREview

Here is my annual report! courtesy of the fine folks at WordPress… it is interesting to see it all, but quite dismal overall as far as traffic goes, I would like to say “2013 will be better, I’ll post more and get into it properly again” but that would be a lie, the truth of the matter is… I probably wont.

Why?

There are two reasons for this… one being my new Web Design business, Farbox Creative which is taking large chunks of my time (there will be an industry blog over there too) but the main reason I doubt I will be finding the time is the fact that on the 31-12-2012 I got engaged to a truly amazing woman(Seen here:bottom-right), and so there is a truck-load of planning to be done which may preclude me from reviving this blog fully.

So! I wish you all a blessed and safe 2013 and hope to post at least occasionally ;)

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

BPC:Falling

This challenge was a fun one, after convincing my Dad to let me trace around him with tape, (Note: this can result in unintentional hair removal) I ascended to the roof to snap the photo, had I more time, I would have tried again and framed the shot better, but overall, it was a fun entry.

So, Cutlery…

7 Things I Learned in 2011

Well it is that time of year where everyone seems to recap their milestones in some way, so I figured I would jump on the bandwagon in my own way.

This list is in no way definitive or complete, but just what came to mind. I will also say that some of the things that made the list are not totally new but I have attained a far greater understanding of them.

1:People pleasing gets you nowhere.

There is a desire in each of us to please others, in some Continue reading

3:Success is not yet Measurable

You are working long hours, there is that deadline on Friday, you are throwing everything you can at it, and you have the ulcer to prove it. With an hour to spare you open up a new fresh email to your boss starting with the statement “It is finished”. Relief floods your system when you click send. you achieved! you attained the results needed. Well that is the way it can work in the secular world…

In Spiritual leadership, it is not Continue reading
