“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.
