Hard Work Pays Off

March 11, 2019


 “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.” Ecclesiastes 9:10A  


I have been blessed with good jobs all my life.  I just passed the milestone of working 49 years at Volvo/Mack.  I am thinking about retiring when I get to 50 years.   I have worked 60 years full time at three different companies.   My work at Volvo/Mack consists of the following jobs:  programming computerized inspection machines, designing inspection fixtures, and creating specifications for new inspection equipment.


God has given me the tools I need to do my work.  I have been inspired by my hard-working father and his father.  I can visualize an idea in my mind, then put the idea on paper and work out all of the details required.  I can then make many of the parts whether they are made of wood, metal, or some other material.


Jesus was a carpenter while growing up as was his earthly father, Joseph.  My father suggested that I work as long as I can, and I have been doing just that! 


I have an extensive wood working shop at home.   I am presently building a metal working shop at home.  I enjoy many hobbies:  working on several rental units, collecting classic cars, photography, working on electronic projects, working on wood and metal projects, and traveling with my lovely wife.



Dear Lord Jesus, I think you for saving my soul and for providing for me and my loved ones all these years.  Amen.
