Odds and Ends 05

The new phone came in Friday afternoon. It took hours at our local provider’s store to get it activated. We still have no solid idea why, except that part of it was the failure to get a UIC programmed into the device. Somehow it was sent out without an identifying code. But there were other issues. We won’t be ordering from our provider’s online store again. At any rate, I’m now back to a flip phone and it’s all good.

The last two weeks have seen weather too cold or simply too nasty for riding. We even got some 4 inches of snow a few days ago. Today I gave the bike a tune-up because tomorrow should be all warm and sunny. My body is rather unhappy with the lack of activity. Maybe I can get some pictures worth sharing; I’m heading out to Draper Lake.

Jack posted an interesting article this weekend. The idea is to climb up out of the pit of being a hen-pecked man. What has often disappointed me is the number of men who, having once been taught the truth, still refuse to be men. I’ve run into this a great deal over the years and have had to give up on some guys because they can’t be bothered to take the first step of introspection and laying claim to their divine heritage. They don’t know who they are, and somehow think it’s okay. Women can have similar problems; you’ll notice Jack’s article assumes a man is dealing with a woman who doesn’t know who she is in Christ, either. It’s not just a man or woman problem.

Pray with me about finding a job. I’ve learned the hard way that God won’t prosper the usual methods for me. I have to wait until someone approaches me. It doesn’t have to be a conventional job by any means, either, but I sense the need to be doing something.

    You have my prayers as always and will include your job search to be as He wills. What type of flip phone did you get? I am still trying to find hubby a decent one as that is all he will consider…

    Thanks. I got a Kyocera Dura XTP; it’s a rather expensive flip phone, but it’s designed for industrial and outdoor worksite use. Most carriers have at least one version or another of this thing. I added a 32GB SD memory chip so I can take pictures or even videos if I encounter something worth it.
