As I hope you all know by now, I LOVE VIDEO. The english dictionary definition for Love is: an intense feeling of deep affection. Need I say more? Yes. Lately i've really been trying to figure out what I want to do with this gift God has given me, or on the other hand, what God would like me to do with this gift He's given me. The props from the homies are expected I guess you could say and the recognition i've been getting from people in the area and nationally is finally setting in. I've got this guy over here calling me to shoot something for his studio and i've got another trying to get together to show him some editing techniques. Now if my last name was Couillard (no offense) i'd be all over it like a fat kid on cake but needless to say it's not, nor will it ever be. HUMBLE THE LORD HATH MADE ME AND HUMBLE I SHALL BE. I've come to grips that as for right now, I don't need to be paying bills with mediocre videos, I don't need to be searching for ideas and I definitely don't need to be listening to anyone but God himself (and Chris Lauri). I'm fine with working the 9-5, paying off bills and filming/riding in the off time. I know all the work i've done will someday pay off. I'm in no hurry to do anything but be obedient to what i'm being told to do. It's just how it is, how it happens and how i've come to find the most happiness. Amen?
Last night I spent 5 hours filming my friend and brother in Christ, Zack Black inside of the Elks building. Now if you're not from Ceourd'Alene or not familiar with "the Elks Building" that's located downtown than you will be fairly soon. It's an old run-down community center from, gosh i don't even know, the 60's? Anyway, the place is now filled with lumber, antiques and as of last night, skate ramps. My friend Tim said it best last when we had just finished setting all the lights up..."dang Josh, look at this, look at where we are and what we've created...how sick is this!?"
For him to say that made me realize just a portion of how great God has been. If I can do what i've done in the last 6 months since recommitting my life, imagine a lifetime eh?
In conclusion, sorry i've been typing your face off but this is only a portion of what's been happening lately. I just got to the office from being fired from my job. "not only so but we also rejoice in our sufferings..." and rejoicing I am. Never really enjoyed that job or the owners but i stuck through it and now i'm excited to see what God has in store for me next. Stay tuned for more updates and the short from "the Elks Building" i'll have up within the next few days. Until then, God bless you fools...
