TREE OF LIGHT For I am the vine You have become My branches So abide in Me When it comes to clay, one never really knows if a piece is going to turn out well, because anything can happen in the kiln. So here’s a pre-firing post by a young and inexperienced potter who, in his fear and uncertainty, remembers his Master Potter for whom nothing is uncertain and from whom every living vessel is created. I am but a tiny branch among many, and one that took decades just to sprout. But I give thanks because now I too belong to Him who fills me with water and quenches the thirst in my spirit. May I always abide in Him, so that I will bear good fruit, and never be cut off. #studioasobi #madeinsg #diffuser #light #ceramics #pottery #potter #unfired #tree #vine #branches #john15

TREE OF LIGHT
For I am the vine
You have become My branches
So abide in Me  When it comes to clay, one never really knows if a piece is going to turn out well, because anything can happen in the kiln.

捕风捉影 | A chasing after the wind This morning I saw this reflected on our floors. Our blinds were closed, but as they were facing downwards, the bright sun still entered into our living room through the gaps and it was beautiful. A brief moment later, the scene faded. Clouds outside must have temporarily passed over the stream of light. What is vain and what can stand the test of time? Money? Glory? Approval of men? What can bring true lasting joy and fulfillment? Only the things that stand on truth will hold firm when the waves come crashing down. Anything built on moving sands may look sturdy for a while, but it all goes away like the passing glimpse of light when the trials come. The world promises much, but in the end it doesn’t satisfy. 一切乃过眼云烟。There is a far better answer – which is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. And it is our hope, that everyone shall find this answer. #light #Ecclesiastes #reflections #life #faith #hope

SHEDDING That which I once was So quickly fading away As the Light shines through This bowl took a long time to make. After the many hours spent carving out the delicate clay body, it then sat for months on our shelf awaiting its turn to be glazed while we busied ourselves with more urgent work. Then finally we got back to it, and before we knew it, it was finished. And isn’t this so much like my walk with Christ? In so many areas of my life I’ve allowed myself to be distracted by all sorts of things, when I could have just easily taken that next important step in my faith. Enough of half measures. May the Light shine through all the dark and hidden corners in my life, so that my old self can just fade away and be replaced by what is pure and eternal. #light #shine #porous #perforated #carving #pottery #ceramics #studioasobi

SHEDDING
That which I once was
So quickly fading away
As the Light shines through  This bowl took a long time to make. After the many hours spent carving out the delicate clay body, it then sat for months on our shelf awaiting its turn to be glazed while we busied ourselves with more urgent work. 
Then finally we got back to it, and before we knew it, it was finished.
