I am a Sergeant in the Detective Bureau in my hometown sheriffs office. I worked my way up from the radio room, to patrol, to the Bureau.
I got hurt on the job, blew 2 disc in my spine, and managed to get arthritis in a joint in my spine to boot. So I am sidelined while trying to get better.
I really don't know what I am going to do if/when I get better. I know God has a plan for me, but I just cant see it yet.
Oh and don't feel sorry for me Brothers. I have two sons, a 5 year old and a 2 year old. The blessing from this back injury has been that I have been able to be a stay at home dad and raise my boys.
Amen. He does have a plan. I got to spend time home with my kids when I injured my back doing carpet work. So I know what you mean. That was a geat blessing. The Lord then brought me to the point where I have the job that I have now. Our great Lord will direct your path and lead you into something good I'm sure.

Started a 4 yr electrical apprenticeship (at 16yrs) 1968 with ICI, retired 36 yrs later (still with ICI) as an electrical technician. I enjoyed nearly every day.
I now enjoy every day with our Lord Jesus.

That's half the battle right there! If you enjoy what you do most of the time. Good for you! Yes, enjoy the rest of your time with our great Lord. :)

Quality Manager in a CNC machine shop. Funny thing is I have no mechanical ability what-so-ever and have survived in this job for 24 years!!!
(I can do paperwork like crazy! ever heard of QS-9000 or ISO9000 or TS16949 quality systems - those I can do!)

I FINALLY got around to apply to ASU this coming Fall and got accepted...after kicking it around for awhile I finally decided on a major there:
Multimedia Writing & Technical Communication (http://www.asu.edu/provost/smis/asup/bs/mwtcbs.pdf)
which sounds long and fancy, but what it breaks down to is website development.
Then I got laid off my job as an Executive Assistant in May and guess what job the Lord has led me to?
I'm a Webmaster and training coordinator for a company here in Phoenix! The training coordinator part is the primary part of my job (for now), but in six months or so once I've revamped and modernized the way things are done around here, they're planning on hiring someone else to do that and leaving me to manage the website alone.
I've only been here a month but it is hands-down the best job I've ever had. The people are great, the potential in the future is enormous, and I am free to explore my technical and creative abilities to my heart's content. They (my bosses) are EXTREMELY happy they found me and I am equally happy to have been found.
Plan on going to college anyway and getting the degree.
