Psalm 119:114-115

114 You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
115 Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
114 Du er mitt vern og mitt skjold, jeg venter på ditt ord.
115 Vik fra meg, voldsmenn! Jeg vil ta vare på budene fra min Gud.
Today’s verses!
I have re-found a love for trading in forex and maybe in time stocks (need more capital to trade stocks hough). I’m still learning, but I have a colleague and friend that’s teaching me the ropes. Taking my time, although I’m impatient…
Take care guys and gals, God bless!

1 Corinthians 1,18

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
18 For ordet om korset er dårskap for dem som går fortapt, men for oss som blir frelst, er det Guds kraft. (- Norwegian)

Short but powerful verse today. I’m still getting used to writing detailed texts, so it’s an ongoing process.

Me religious??

This might seem weird and stupid, but even though I’m reading the bible and liking it… I still don’t consider myself religious (christian, or similar). I believe in a higher power, and calling it God or our Lord is as fitting as any name. Do I believe that God created Heaven and Earth? No.. Evolution all the way.

BibleI done bought me my very first bible ya’ll!

If you had asked me a year ago, buying a bible would be wasted money… Ah well…

I am currently reading the bible, not studying it yet. The study will happen after I’ve read it C2C (cover to cover). At present I’m getting through two or three chapters a day, working days, maybe more weekends.

– 1435 pages… Ain’t read in a day!

Genesis 29,1 is my current “position”, and Jacob is on his way to find his wife from the daughters of Laban.


Genesis 8:22

“As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”

“Så lenge jorden står, skal såtid og høsttid, kulde og varme, sommer og vinter, dag og natt aldri ta slutt.”

I never thought I’d find this much joy in reading a religious text! Finding a verse and posting it here.

My thought is to post a verse (not daily as I’ve done now) and write my thoughts on the topic, maybe going a bit more in depth on the subject. I will post verses from the whole bible, not just from the passages I’ve managed to read. I don’t think I can read fast enough to have the material to post.

I hope to maybe be able to post a weekly passage, but time will tell.

Thank you for reading, and God bless!

Sept. 16th, 2015 – Verse

Colossians 3:23-24
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Paulus’ brev til kolossenserne 3:23-24
23 Alt arbeid skal dere gjøre helhjertet, for det er Herren og ikke mennesker dere tjener.
24 Og dere vet at Herren skal gi dere sin arv som lønn. Tjen Herren Kristus!

I have always believed it best to work and take directions from our heart. Only recently I started reading the bible (as I lost my father to cancer) and in there I read about our Lord and our hearts. At present, I’m still reading Genesis. I’m taking my time to try and understand the text written as best I can!

Note: I still don’t consider myself a christian, even though I’m reading the bible and finding joy in some verses. I like to stay educated and that’s part of the reason I started reading the bible. In fact, today I went out and bought myself a new and pristine bible, with the latest 2011 translation, and not the 1930 text I have been reading :)

Exodus 34:21
21 “Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.”

Annen Mosebok 34:21
“Seks dager skal du arbeide, og på den syvende dag skal du hvile; om det så er i våronnen eller høstonnen, så skal du holde hviledagen.”

How many of us can say we follow this text? I sure know I can’t claim to rest, although  I can say my work used to require me to work Sundays, but as I “moved up in ranks” I’m free from regular work. However.. I have to say, I’ve yet to actively follow this verse, but as I’m reading the Bible (yes, I’ve started reading the bible cover 2 cover) I become more and more aware of these texts.

I’d love to hear from you about this, either in a comment here or send me an email.

God bless


New series

Hey guys, about time to write something again.
A couple of days ago, I picked up a free lawnmower and got it home to do some work before selling it again. It was given away as non-starting, but it had been run a couple of weeks ago. I did some very basic testing like spark, air filter, etc. Nothing bad, except the fuel smelled funny, almost like diesel. The previous owner said she had run it dry, and then filled it up and couldn’t get it to start again. I’m going to empty the tank, open the carb and clean it out and hope that sorts it. It fired for a second or two, using start spray directly in the carb.

Doing those small tests, brought be an idea; I’m going to start a new series of videos on my YouTube channel. Pickup 2 Profit, sounded like a great name so that’s what I’m going with. Here’s a link to my first video in the series. This first item, I’m doing in multi part videos, however I think I’m going to make 1-video “shows” that are a bit longer in the future.

Hope to see you again and I hope to have you watch, comment, like and subscribe to my videos!


I went an did it… I splurged on a new camera for my videos. Having used a camcorder up until now, this time I went DSLR which I’ve wanted to do for some time now. I used to be really into photography and have an early Canon EOS 400D, with no video options.

For once, I did a lot of research, and landed on Canon EOS 70D or 700D hopefully the former. The store didn’t have a 70 in stock, and I didn’t want to wait for them to order and get one, so I ended up with a 700D, which covers all my needs.

More in depth post as soon as I’ve used it a bit, and can say I have an honest opinion.

YouTube Giveaway

In light of my slump (read last post), I really wanted to do one or more videos. Got the idea that I’d do a giveaway to my subscribers. Here are the details:

Open until June 20th
New and existing subscribers
Must follow me on Instagram (
Send me a message on YouTube of your first name and Instagram account name.

On June 21st or 22nd, I’ll do a video on the “lottery-draw”.

Good luck!

All ahead; STOP

I have been in such a bad slump lately… Can’t seem to get my head spun right and able to  make something new.
StopI’ve designated it: Makersblock!
Sometimes it feels like there’s nothing I can do about it, other times it’s just another bump in the road. Ever since the bridge on our main highway collapsed, it’s over doubled my travel time to my shop. This, in turn with there being heavy traffic and lots of stops and queues, has resulted in me not wanting to drive there for a while.

I don’t have any good space here at home to do any real work, and I don’t want to drive all that extra way just to test out a small idea. Driving for 35-40 minutes to test a 10 minute idea, … I could (and should) maybe gather up things, and drive to test out several things but my mind just doesn’t seem to be in it. I’d like to have a place where I could also take 5 and surf the web, maybe to learn a new thing. My shop is currently located in a barn where there’s no internet connection possible (yes, there are a few places like that).

Ah well, I guess I should just muscle through and get going. Please let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see!
