David , as others have said , God works in ways we don't always understand. Whom the Lord loveth, He chasteneth. " Take my yoke upon you, and learn of Me". Jesus is asking us to take one end of the yoke, My yoke is easy, get along side Me and we will pull together. When we are weak , God increases our strength . The joy of the Lord is your strength . It is a positive thing to be weak in God's strength. Try to focus on one day at a time, and let Him lead you. I'm praying for you brother,
Dave

FF, i have no clue as to which hole in your body you are speaking from but your words STINK !!!!! Just because your marriage ended on a very sour note & you have little to no grief over a bad marriage that finally ended,does not mean that the death of ones spouse in a good marriage can be written off so litely as your bad marriage was.

Facts from God's Word, The Holy Bible
God said it was not good for Adam to be alone.. God made Eve, a woman for Adam.

Jesus said that a man shall leave his father & mother & cleave/cling to his wife & the 2 shall become 1 flesh. It is not easy to overcome the hurt & pain caused when 1 is torn into 2.

So now you are going to convince everyone that you lied when you pm'd me with the way it ended ????????? I think you are the one who has done the pers
onal attacks,not the other way around.

I did not add new info to this thread to have some inconsiderate member keep doing personal attacks on me during this most difficult time in my life. I am not interested in carrying on a shitfest with you ff,i will simply put you on the enemy list & then won't see your crap posts.
I entered new info for the benefit of the few who were interested in an update from me,i can easily live without this forum & i will if these inconsiderate & rude remarks to me continue. There was no call for any of your attack on anything i posted.

The new sign for the business looks very nice. The lift/table is an excellent idea also. Work smarter, not harder. :)

I imagine those new doors fit a a little tighter than the old ones, maybe you will have an easier time heating the shop this coming winter.

I am getting a lot of positive comments about the sign from customers. The lift table is something we had talked about for yrs ,i should have gotten 1 much sooner than this yr.,it makes work faster & easier,especially when working alone.

The old doors were just fiberglass,these new doors are insulated & with all new weather stripping around them should make the shop a bit easier to heat.
The one old door had been up & down so many times that it was getting onery about going up & down,it is nice to have doors that work so easily now & the main door i use is powered with an opener,making less running for me as i can use a remote when outside wanting in with equipment.

I am using AC in the shop this yr.,i had tried it for a few times last yr.,this yr i have 2 units,for a total of 15,000 btu. It is sufficient to keep it "comfortable",with the forecast high temp today of 94 with real feel of 110,the shop will likely be at 82-83 inside. I have a bigger unit that i want to install for next yr. so that even on the hottest days i will be able to condition it to about 75* which is as cold as i care to have it with AC.

I have an AC unit in my shop as well. On a hot day it is really nice, and it keeps the humidity level under control.

In the past,without AC, meant not getting much done on the real hot,humid days. Now with the AC it is like working in the shop in the winter with the doors closed. I can work in comfort & keep the jobs flowing thru.This extremely dry weather has really slowed down my work,next week i should be able to start on the backlog of snow blowers sitting here.

The sign and doors look great WH! I'll second what Rob said about the humidity level and AC. Even if the temp is kept at 79 or 80 the lower humidity level makes a huge difference in how that feels.

I like that lift table, makes me envious! :) :) I use the loader bucket to lift the tractor before propping it up but I am still on the ground. Actually on a piece of leftover insulation board that i lay on the ground. Its not too bad once I get down there and have tools in reach, but it never fails that I need the one wrench or pliers or something that I left over on the bench and i have to drag myself out and up again.....usually twice. :bang:

I didn't so much much mind working on my creeper... especially if my wife was in the shop. I could just get her to get me tools i needed.Since she died,i was under a tractor 1 day & had to get up to get some other tools,that is when it really hit me that this will be the new normal.I decided right then to get this lift,had actually looked at it over the winter with Naomi & we had it on our wish list for the future. I had always held back on getting a table lift,as i had used a table lift in the John Deere shop i previously worked in & knew there were limitations to a table lift & certain jobs that just needed more . When we saw this unit with the Deck Hand attachment o n it,i told Naomi that this is THE unit to have. After using it for several months,i can say it truly is the unit to have. Whether it is a tractor needing a drive belt & idler pulleys or a steer shaft replacement or a zero turn needing the blades removed for sharpening or a pressure washer,walk behind mower needing service or repair,this table lift will get them all up to a comfortable position without me needing help to lift them onto a work bench. :D
