These white little vases are kept unglazed because life is beautiful in its raw simplicity and fragility. Life is also transitory, so at the end of the day, what is most purposeful to you?

I learnt recently that the word “Passion” is from a Latin root word which connotes to suffer. Today, we often use the word to express strength of emotion, and nothing quite captures both old and contemporary meanings as the passion of Jesus Christ. Thank you our Lord and savior! “How deep the Father’s love for us How vast beyond all measure That He should give His only Son To make a wretch His treasure How great the pain of searing loss The Father turns His face away As wounds which mar the Chosen One Bring many sons to glory Behold the man upon a cross My sin upon His shoulders Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice Call out among the scoffers It was my sin that held Him there Until it was accomplished His dying breath has brought me life I know that it is finished I will not boast in anything No gifts, no power, no wisdom But I will boast in Jesus Christ His death and resurrection Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer But this I know with all my heart His wounds have paid my ransom” #meaning of #passion #jesuschrist #life #charis #love #grace

"How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom"

Meaning of Asobi

Calligraphy

 

Asobi (遊び) means play in Japanese. It also means journey or to wander in Mandarin. The pictorial form of this character 遊 depicts a journey (巡行) with a flag (旗)and a student (学子). It represents how people used to go on boat journeys to observe and learn from different places in the olden days. It is interesting how it came to embody an element of play when the character is incorporated into the Japanese language. Perhaps this is indicative of how journeys are inherently fun by nature!

I have always been a fan of Chinese Calligraphy as there is a certain spirit imbued within the moment of writing, which is captured on paper with ink. The thought of trying out calligraphy has been swirling in my mind for some time and I finally got hold of some paper, ink and brush yesterday. What I felt at the moment, I transferred to my brush. In many ways, it is like how I work with clay. I find it easiest to create when I immerse myself into the moment when it is just me and the way the clay is responding to my hands.

I have not taken any lessons in calligraphy and hence the writing is raw. I decided to give it a go nonetheless, because this is what asobi is about to me – to have a free spirit of experimentation and not be daunted by the unknown. Like the ancient student sitting on the boat going on a voyage of learning, it is exciting to find our way in this world and to choose where to dock.

2014 is coming to an end, and a new beginning awaits in 2015. May you continue to enjoy your personal voyage through life!
