7 Things I’ve Learned About Installing Deadbolts

7 Things I’ve learned about installing deadbolts.

1. The cheaper the cost of the deadbolt the more difficult it is to install.

2. You can’t install a deadbolt in the dark. You have to have a lot of light to see to line things up.

3. You have to have the right tools. And they are never what you have on hand.

4. That once you start the process your obligated to finish it. Otherwise you have a drafty insecure door.

5. Sometimes it takes two sets of hands to finish the job.

6. That a person with a recent neck surgery probably shouldn’t be tackling the task.

7. That if the installation instructions are incomprehensible you should return the set immediately.

When its hard

When living out my Christian faith is hard I remind myself that:

1. I’m not called to walk naked like the prophet Isaiah among the people of Israel.

2. I’m not called to marry an unfaithful wife like the prophet Hosea.

3. I’m not called to be a mime or play with tinker toys like Ezekiel.

4. Unlike the Apostle Paul I’ve not been beaten in defense of my faith.

All I’m called to do is live out my faith day by day in a relationship with God. It’s the least I can do.
