Stayed up late and attempted another square.

Halfway

After a while... it went wild. Seems like it was salvaged.

Beauty from ashes...

Paired up with the other two, the three became interesting.

Been on the road for work this week, but started and finished a couple things. Some time drawing on the plane, in hotel and during down times.

Here's the first one:

Angular and formal structure. More like a puzzle to set up and solve.

Then, I started another one. I wanted it to be more freeform and flowing. It was challenging to complete and make sense of. For this one, I took several photos along the way, posting them on Instagram too.

Here are the two drawings, side-by-side. They represent a lot of time scribbling away. They're good neighbors.

I revised the original red/black Mystical School note to mashup other pages of notes into a single design. Wanted to make something square.

Whenever something resonates the truth about our relationship with Holy Spirit, I jot it down on cards. Sometimes, like in this example, I forget to attribute where the phrase came from... but is likely something from Graham Cooke.

"The Holy Spirit will bring us to a place where we can trust God for everything and where God can trust us with what he wants to give us."

"The Holy Spirit will bring us to a place where we can trust God for everything and where God can trust us with what he wants to give us."

Today, my family made a pit stop in Glen Rose, Texas to visit Carl Baugh's "Creation Evidence Museum." Wish I had done a little more research before making the trip, since the kids did not enjoy it. The kids were completely bored, so it was impossible to enjoy the place, but here's three things learned:

This week, I started working at Bottle Rocket, a company in Dallas the focuses on mobile apps and games. Since even "mobile" is getting blurry, their "pilots of the future" motto is more compelling.

The founder, Calvin Carter, gave a talk to a small group of newly hired folks on "passion." I've never experienced someone in leadership invest and speak into the lives of workers like this. I'm speechless at how special this week has been, so here are some notes.

"Passion"

"Passion"

The talk covered the company's vision, but tied back to our personal values and how they affect the world around us.

The way you treat one person is how you treat every person. ... How you do anything is how you do everything. ... Values only matter if we live them.

Everything in Heaven is Connected to the Presence of God

Everything in Heaven is Connected to the Presence of God

I was not able to attend Bill Johnson's appearances in December, but caught them on YouTube recently. This statement of "everything in Heaven is connected to the presence of God" caught my attention. So, I focused on it and strung some other ideas along.

Rolland Baker - Voice of the Apostles 2012
It is God’s initiative and I am thrilled with Him & trust Him. I don’t know what I am doing. I’m not here to tell you how to do anything. I’m here to say that all I know to do is to approach God with more humility than ever, with more brokenness than ever, with more empty-handedness than ever, with more repentance than ever, with more lowliness than ever, more confidence in Him & less in myself than ever, and throwing myself on His mercies saying... God, I don’t deserve a thing, but YOU died for me & I appeal to YOUR death on the cross for everything. That is the only basis of my confidence in YOU. I bet my life on it. I am YOURS. There is no ‘Plan B.’ I want nothing to take away from the power of the cross.
— Rolland Baker, Voice of the Apostles 2012 (notes)

This quotes comes from 2012 when I was watching Voice of the Apostles online. The talk was by Rolland Baker, who has an amazing demeanor and back story. He joked with people in the audience, asking them why they had paper and pens out. He laughed at their attempt to take notes... since he does not know what he is doing.

Rolland hit a point in the sermon where this chunk came out and it hit me deep. He was speaking from a depth of relationship with Jesus that was deeper that I've known. Since then, I go back, re-read it, and get my heart in line with it.
