I don't watch a lot of television during the fall and winter, there
just isn't a lot to watch after the World Series and before Spring Training,
but I have found a show that is become an addiction to me-The Discovery
Channel's Monster Garage. It is awesome. Jessie James, assembles a crew
of mechanics to transform an ordinary automobile into a custom machine.
They do more than trick the cars out, they literally transform them. In
one episode, they made a school bus into a pontoon boat that really floated,
in another they made a Limousine into a fire truck that put out a fire.
Another time, they turned a Mustang into a lawn mower that cut grass at
60 miles per hour. My personal favorite was the time they turned a car
into a hot air balloon.
The rules are simple, the crew has seven days and $3000.00 to use to
make the transformation. The automobile has to operate in its normal form
and then transform into its new form. If they are successful, each of the
crew gets a $3500.00 set of tools to take home with them and the satisfaction
of doing the impossible.
I love this show-it is awesome. Why? I'm not a mechanical person. I
almost never work on my own car. I like it for the same reason I watch
"This Old House," or I used to watch Bob Ross paint every Saturday Morning
on PBS. I like being around the creative process. There is something that
comes alive in me when I watch other people create something. It is the
same buzz I get when I am creative.
Where does that yearning for being creative come from? I believe it
comes from God. No, I'm not saying that God is implanting a special desire
in my heart to watch Monster Garage. But I do believe that God has given
us the desire to create. And I know that when I create, I feel close to
Because when we are creative, we are taking after our Father.
