Extended Offer

Since I love the outdoors and do one to two backwoods trips a year, I thought it would be fitting to offer the following service. If you manufacture gear for the great outdoors and are looking for someone to test a product that you manufacture, I may be able to help. Please contact me using one of my contact forms at Northern Branches. I am well versed in GPS’s, mapping software, solid modeling (currently a design engineer), wood canoe/kayak building, and digital photography. My plans for a spring ’08 trip into the Boundary Waters are underway. The route will be a 35 to 50 mile loop probably in the northeast corner of the park. Again, contact me via Northern Branches with any questions.

School Progress

I'm back at it. I have entered into a associates degree in Nuclear Production Technologies. So far i have finished English 101 that was 5 years ago. Last semester i aced Healthful living which was an awesome class i learned a lot. Currently i'm taking COMM 101 which is Public Speaking. I love the class but as a result of a mix up i missed my first class and as of the second class i didn't have my book. The book should be here for my third class. So far the one class i took i really loved it. I gave my icebreaker speech and it went great.

Pondering #1
"Who allows you to breathe who gives you breath" he asked

They respond "Well God does"

"If you receive your breath from God!" He exclaims
"What can you do for God?"

Is this like one worm asking another what can you do for man?
I don't know but it is bothering me i know not why.

Pondering #2
I posted a Why post this may fit in.
Jesus was born without sin and lived without sin then he became sin for us on the cross and was sacrificed for our sin. He knew no sin but yet he was a man sent to earth as a lamb to restore us.

We are born in sin - i believe we are under grace until we are of an accountable age. Then as we understand our sin we repent of it turn away from it and spend the rest of our lives avoiding it.

(KJV) Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him], that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Caveat what if we are born of sin or into sin but raised in a strict-holiness-legalistic-denomination oh what am i to do? Is this the same as someone who is born American not fully understanding what freedoms and grace America affords us?
