JESUS?

Today we remember you. Today is the day we remember your birth and when you started your incredible journey. I really really REALLY can never express what you have done for us and do it justice.

Thank you Jesus for what you did…

Thankful for My Wife

My Wife

One of strongest things about me is my Wife. In fact i would say that she probably stronger than  all my qualities put together. It sometimes seems that way when i realise that i have been acting like an a**e and she’s the one who is right which happens alot and yet she can be so humble about it most times too.

I am the luckiest man alive to be married to such an amazing woman.

Thank you Jesus for my Wife

Thankful For Parents

By Family, God No Comments

Parents

Our parents deserve the most respect out of any people we know. They are responsible for so much. I am so lucky to have had two people being my parents who have taken on the responsibility with gusto pride and mostly love in their hearts.

Parents are responsible for molding us in to the people we will turn out to be. They are responsible for making us. They are responsible for raising us to be people in our own right. I think about the prospect of becoming a parent, something i have not had to seriously consider, and it frightens the life out of me. If i can even do half as good a job as my own parents i think I’ll be doing really well.

I am so glad to have had parents like these.

Thank you Jesus for my Parents and I pray that you would be with those who are not so lucky as i am.

Sisters

I have two wonderfully amazing sisters. These two women are truly inspirational. My two sisters, Sandra and Angie have loved me as their little brother all my life. They are both brilliant mothers and wives.

The amount of strength and patience it takes to bring up kids and be a good spouse is huge and these two do it so well. I respect and love them dearly

Thankful for Nieces & Nephews

Nieces & Nephews

The above picture is one of my many nieces. This is Leah. She is one of the cutest little babies i think i have ever seen. My sisters have developed a habit of producing these really cute kiddies. I love all of my lil nieces and nephews – there are quite a few of them and they are all really amazing little guys.

I love when we have times with the family and we get to see my siblings and all the kids. It’s amazing seeing them all grow up so fast. It really makes me think about when Ruth and I start our own family. Some big thoughts engulf me at that stage but in an inspiring way.

Then i have to go to the others= side and include the Nieces i have inherited through Ruth. Those girls are great. Been so great getting to know them and seeing them turn in to two beautiful women.

Being an Uncle ROCKS!!!!

Thank you Jesus for my Nieces and Nephews.

Thankful for our home

By God No Comments

Prime Real Estate

Our Home

According the the UK government there are over 10500 people who have applied for homeless accommodation in the last quarter of this year and we live in one of the richest countries in the world by poverty standards!!! When you start to think about people in 3rd world countries the gravity of poverty really begins to sink in.

We are lucky to have a home. We are all lucky. If you have a roof over your head that you call home – then this applies to you too. With that in mind I am so very thankful for our little flat that Ruth and I can call our home.

I pray that those who are not so fortunate will be safe. That Jesus will protect them and that above all they would come to know Him because he really is amazing especially when you realise what he’s really all about.

Thank you Jesus for our home.

Thankful for my Health

Peeling cross

My Health

There is an ironic theme today because as i write this i am feeling really l ill with a horrible chesty cold and a really bad sore/seizing throat and yet i am being thankful for my health! In context i’m thankful that generally i am healthy. Over the past week i’ve heard that two people my friends know passed away with Cancer which is so so very very sad.

Our bodies are really so fickle with such a delicate balance of temperatures, chemicals, bacteria and viruses all working together to keep our systems tip top.  It’s amazing the norm is actually not being sick. When you look at how it all works the odds suggest that we should all be broken and we shouldn’t be able to get unbroken. I work with a guy who used to be an imunologist and i remember chatting to him about deseases and such and he was and still is amazed at the human bodyies ability to fight off desease and viruses.

So I am grateful for the fact taht, while i feel rubsih as i type, I am generally very healthy indeed.

Thank you Jesus for my Health

Thankful for My Job

My Job

I am so lucky. I really really am. I really love my Job. Even though at the moment i’m going through a bit of a rough time i still love it. Every job has its tough moments – that’s a given. I’m just amazed that through these rough parts in this job i’m not screaming inside wanting to leave.

I get to go to work and do what i love doing – make movies. I get to pull all my skills together to create films and then i get to hone and refine those skills even futher.

HOW COOL IS THAT!!!

Thank you Jesus for a great job!

Thankful for Church & Community

Church & Community

When i say church i mean “church” and not  “the church”. I’m talking about church as Jesus intended it  and not the political quagmire it often is. Church as community is awesome! When it all works in the way it should it really is fantastic. People rally round and drop things in times of need and you find yourself giving the same treatment. In true community your friendships and relationships are honest true and so so good!

This isn’t just confined to church. The same concepts can be applied to any group of friends but i guess it’s easier to recognise the actions of a tight knot community working well together in a church environment – at least that is what i have seen. As a result of this i am so thankful for our church Oaktree

Oaktree is such a great church. It’s so far from stuffy liffeless churches that so many people assume is what the church is. I have made some amazing friendships and met some really amazing people. They are a great support to Ruth and I and they hold no punches and call me up on stuff too.

If you have pre-defined ideas on what church is i dare you to come to an Oaktree service and think the same afterwards.

Thank you Jesus for Oaktree!

Thankful for my ability to Create Films

My ability to Create Films

I love making films. A For as long as I have been doing it i have loved it. Part of it is in the same Geekfest thread as graphics and web design – figuring out how best to do something. Its alkso to do with my love of film and creating narrative. I suppose you could say i love telling stories and i love to tell them in this medium the most.

In the last few years i have been doing more and more directing to the point now where my job title is Director/Editor. I am especially loving haviong a more holistic view of the process and creating a vision for a project and seeing it through.

Have a look below at some of my  at my YouTube videos.

My ability to Photoshop

AI am in no way ever going to claim to be great at doing graphics. I have realised over the past few years where my skills really lie and graphics is not my speciality but i do love creating stuff and the fun you can have with photoshop is endless. Whether its creating funny shopped photos to creating logs or web designs photoshoping can only be classed as a truly AMAZING tool.

I would be lost with out it and that is why i am thankful for it – see a small gallery of some shopped items.

My ability to design websites

Another one for a geekfest nomination. I started this website in 2004. I rember a couple of frineds had blogs and i thought it was a rather cool idea. I think it was my curious nature that drove me onwards to continuously imporrve it na dto get to the poimnt i am now where i can build and run entire websites on my own. I’m no pro and would never claim to be but i would say all the web stuff i have done has been a labour of love. I get huge enjoyment and a sense of achievement when i figure out how to do certain tasks.
