Please pray for my Spyderco proto!
Well, my designed proto made it to it's first show recently thanks to Sal and Mr. JHONES! I believe it has to "prove itself" at a few more shows before a decision is made as to whether or not it hits production. I was excited to know that my proto was sharing a spot with Dialex's!!! Yeah!
At first, i thought it might be a bit "early" to ask for those with a relationship with Christ for prayer on the production of my prototype, but I was wrong. I ask that you please pray for my proto NOW. I mean, ya don't put on your seatbelt right before you crash right? HOPEFULLY, you put it on before you start driving. Same thing with my proto...it made it's first show. It's "drive" has begun.
My friend's make comments about "fame and fortune" if my design makes it into production. Did I design it for these reasons? Nope. i know that some money and some recognition will have to come should it reach production. Did I do it in the hopes of recognition? Nope again. I did it to get back at Onion! KIDDING!!! I love this industry and had a concept that I thought would work well in Sal's line. Period. I don't know how Alexandru The Great does it, but it ain't easy designing around that Trademark Roundhole!!!
Anyway, maybe I have posted this due to pulling quite a few 16hr. shifts due to "shortage of staff" lately, so i may just be talking gibberish. LOL! I jumped the gun awhile back regarding my proto, and I apologize again for that one Sal, but this time though, it's different...my concept was tangible! It was "there"! It's drive has begun, and that's a start, but it's destination is unknown. So please, drop a few kind words for my proto when you're praying, and I thank you in advance for doing so...in the book of Matthew it states, "Where two or more are gathered in My Name, there I am in the midst of them." Mahalo for your time, and as always:
Proverbs 16:3...Commit YOUR works to the LORD, and YOUR plans WILL succeed!
