I like your Isaiah 22:22 tag. 

I am descended from the House of David.  Also born on the 22, so maybe?  1dunno1
The one that has always carried me through is Job 5 17 kjv old.

When you do embrace it. Know the Lord is real. 

Five years ago I thought I would never retire. Last year my wife and I started praying about it. We both have not only retired, but we were able to move out of a city that we both did not like, back to my home state and into the country. 

Prayer is so powerful. 

Praise the lord.  Heartflowers
Doin' what I can with what I got

I cannot even explain how crazy this last 18 months have been. Just because my wife and I pray. Do not get me wrong we have hard times. Yesterday I wanted to sell every thing and become a homeless person out in the forest.  1dunno1 But a few more moments on my knees and I feel better now. The world is F'ed up. But the world is for satin. Jesus will save us all from this nightmare.

Turns out it just needed a fuel system drain (water) a new fuel filter and new plugs.
He was happy as shit that I only charged him 75 bucks.
He then asked me if I wanted an old lawnmower.
I am always on the lookout for old shit to salvage for parts.
He gave me an old Sears Craftsman Lawn Tractor circa 1970 ! This fucker even has a 3 point hydraulic lift on the rear. Hasn't been run in about 20 years and the tires are flat and dry rotted, but this thing is neat as hell !!
Will tear it apart and rebuild, just to see what it's about - apparently Sears only made a couple of thousand of these.

This is exactly how I feel. Sometimes I want to run and never stop, but I too get on my knees and pray.  My husband works so hard, and we are getting old.  He cannot even move the way he used to, my heart breaks.  We both work so hard.  

But we have two sons who are adult with autism, and while they are independent, and work, and finish school, we still need to supervise them.  Their heart and soul is so innocent.  This f-ed up world would destroy them.

I like to repurpose various things. 

Components that were salvaged from a facility being decommissioned, are reused in a new project.
