Hi Tes,

you know we are not worthy to be praised, for it is written:

 

Rev 4:11

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, since you created all things, and because of your will they existed and were created!”

 

Rev 5:12

“Worthy is the lamb who was killed to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and praise!”

 

May God bless you Guys!

Consider what happened to Abraham when he was 99 or thereabouts....

In my case, they call them great grandchildren. Geeked Of course, by then, I will add another great to that. Cool

When I retired from the USN, I promised to live until the Lord returns to make them pay for my years of service.

I LOVE that attitude Jack.  Devil

My wife's grandfather worked over 30+ years for Mobil oil company drilling hundreds of oil wells in Oklahoma & Texas. He was retired longer than he had worked for them.

I worked for General Motors 19 years and have been retired for 12.  I would like to live long enough to replace the corporate memories with the familial. Watching my kids grow and have their own families is marvelous.

YesGeeked

Several years ago, I heard James Dobson speak of the "Empty Nest Syndrome" which occurs after all the children are grown and moved away from home. My youngest is now 44, and I still haven't seen an empty nest! They keep moving back home, and when the children stopped moving back home, they sent their grown children!

NOTE: This is not a complaint. I love the fact that my children and grand-children feel comfortable living with Papa & Granny (It's probably Granny they want to live with, however.)

Yup, 2 back at the moment and a grandchild planning on using me to cut college expenses when he transfers to the university.

Jim-Ray:

I live in Sudden Valley (Bellingham) Washington, USA: or rather, at my desk here at Logos headquarters!

I am in the sales department and have had the opportunity to speak with many, if not most, of you that have posted on this forum.  My good friend Ghebreab (Tes) pointed out that there isn't much Logos Employee involvement in the forums.  Well, that's true ... this is my first post.  In our defense, they keep us pretty busy with non-forum related business the majority of the time!

Thank you Ghebreab for pushing me into posting, and I look forward to hearing from you all soon!

 

Thank you Jim-Ray to have you in the followship of  Brothership and friendship  in Christ  with all of us,who are scattered all over the world:I wish to see others doing the samething,

Blessings in Christ.

Tes "forced" me into commenting here while I was working on his computer. I am a Washington State native but relatively new to Bellingham (2 years). I Married a Canadian and "saved" her by bringing her State side:) I help out with tech support at logos and have been enjoying it!

I'm an Australian who moved to Taiwan with an American wife to preach and plant a church (we were blessed and have been successful in doing so).

During the six years I've been here I have:

* Taught English at a Montessori kindergarten (five and a half years of bliss)

* Taught English at a bǔxíbān (two and a half years of fun, but no bliss)

* Worked as a technical writer at a wireless technology company (a year and a half of interesting and career building experiences)

* Worked as a documentation editor at one of the Big Four audit firms (two years and counting of useful career oriented work)

* Worked as the director of training at a corporate training company (a year and counting)

* Completed my Masters degree at Monash (information management and systems)

* Started applying for a PhD at NTUST (industrial and information management)

* Indulged my hobby (photography)

* Had three theological books published (I have one 570 A4 page work still waiting a sufficiently bold publisher), and a handful of journal articles, for all of which work I am completely indebted to Logos

* As a lay leader of a church I helped plant, helped bring people to Christ, and preached in Japan (one visit), China (three visits), and Korea (four visits)

It has been a busy six years.

What has really helped me tremendously has been my Logos library. I cannot estimate accurately the value it has been to me. I am living in a country where I simply cannot purchase such works conveniently. To build this library through Amazon would have been prohibitively expensive, and I couldn't fit a tenth of these works in my apartment if they were hard copies.

I had to leave a couple of hundred books in Australia when I moved, but I was able to take all my Logos books with me. Since then I've gradually built up the kind of library I never thought I would ever be able to afford; it challenges the libraries in a couple of the theological seminaries here in terms of value and currency (they have a lot more books than I do, but I have far more of the most recent scholarship and I purchased it a lot cheaper).

I hesitate to reflect on how much I've spent over the years (I seem to average at least US$1,500 a year), but it has all been worth it. Having this wealth of scholarly commentary available to me has been tremendously useful in my church work, and the amount of time it has saved me is impossible to calculate. May God bless the efforts of Logos to bring a clear understanding of His Word to more people.
