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.

Today i will start the trip of unraveling my spirit. I know my body, haven't met my soul but live with my spirit yet don't know it's confusion. The way it is explained to me is we have a body, a spirit, and a soul. I've interpreted that to mean our body is a temporary vehicle for our soul and our spirit or spiritual life will determine where our soul will go.

The unraveling is i was raised in a very religious rearing and that in itself is not the problem. The problem is i have witnessed the power of god, seen and heard the tangible, felt his presence and delighted in receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit. I am not writing this to dispute or argue upbringing beliefs or religions. I am just trying to reknit my fabric to heal my spirit make myself realize my despair my deep sense of nothing. I have a very happy family life. I just want to fill my life to it's fullest potential. I do no longer listen, hear, or always obey i don't even talk to him anymore. What a waste considering i at one time was on fire and lead worship for 3 years.
