I studied music in college, it was a disaster. Then I went
to a technical adult evening class. I was having memory
issues. Next I took a legal course that I did very well in,
but it was all open book testing, too easy. I didn’t do real
well in school so I took on whatever jobs I could do with
my short comings. A lot of people thought I was goofing off.
What I didn’t realize was that along the trail of my life I had
been around way too many toxic chemicals. This made it
rough to work for others because even I was confused as to
my poor performance. I got fired from many jobs
During the time of my studies in building maintenance
I met a christian group that said they loved God very much.
I moved in with them only to find out they were far more
concerned about how much they could get out of me and
profit off of my free labor.
God had given them more than they needed and they they
still demanded more. I had to get away from them. I was
very young in the Lord at that time, I was very hurt
So I wound up doing mostly self-employment type of jobs or
jobs that put me in a position of having to work mostly alone.
Not really fitting in anywhere I learned to act as a free agent
doing everything for people such as portrait photography,
recruiter for truck driving school, professional shopper,
and marketing cars which really wasn’t all that bad.
Next I ran my dad’s business after he passed away in
1992. It was a repair , auto parts business and car wash.
It was perfect for me and I love it.
The local political people refused to allow me to continue
on as my dad did even though I had the right to do so…..
After all the insanity I was told I was entitled to a veterans pension.
Which I am very thankful for at age 61. Without the US Veterans
Administration I would have been in a world of hurt.
Now having being down this not so easy path(s) in
life has taught me to be humble and have a better
understanding than most concerning God’s compassion
for my fellow man.
calling. To be a defender of the forsaken using whatever skills
and resources God supplies.
Recently a young lady asked me if I was a scientist due to my
interest or at least my curiosity of hydroponics. It’s a project
I have high hopes in regarding better farming for
orphanages all over the world. A lot of christians shy away all
this modern talk, but as long as all is true, and done in the
Light I am a person that believes God will supply us the
right tools and people for the right jobs. I tell people I am
not a know it all or holier than thou, just most likely a lot
more open to being blessed than thou …. Amen.
Love In Christ,
