    But first and most importantly, you’re an Eved Hashem.

    That should be EVERYONE’S first answer and then you can say whatever you want.

    CharlieSmall; You should have added a stipulation…”Because everyone (who does) seems to have time to read and post on the CR. If someone works in an office, they can sneak off to the CR (when they think the boss doesn’t see.)But in my job, I can’t read or post while on duty.

    The real answer is rely on HaShem. That’s what EVERYONE does for a living.

    Most people mind their own business (if they have one), others mind someone else’s business, abandoning their own.

    Rav Gifter is quoted as having said, “people say they make a living, when in reality they take a living.”

    ‘But first and most importantly, you’re an Eved Hashem.”

    When my father asks someone what they do for a living he asks them,

    “How do you keep your Ruchnius attached to your Gashmius?”

    Isnt he adorable? πŸ™‚

    candy613- it’s ‘gUarding… tonGue..’ & no offense, annoying sign-off like ‘MONIS’ was.

    & I did answer the question. I only put paying jobs. (for the babysitting, a couple of times a year I’d get a matuna or cash gift).

    and what’s funny– you didn’t answer the question! unless you’re a youngster πŸ˜‰

    When I’m not doing that I can be found with my telescope.

    Sac: Yes, tongues can get cavities, in the pink top surface wearing away, exposing a red, very sensitive lower layer. I had this as a teen, and b’h found that avoiding toothpaste, and mint allowed it to heal.

    By title I am a handyman who specializes in carpentry but as of right now I am unemployed (though I (can) do quite a lot this is my main occupation other than learning Hashem’s torah which always comes first)

    yossi z., do you also do plumbing & electrical work as well or is just carpentry work that you do? I’m only asking cause sometimes when I’m in the need of one & my regular guy can’t come, it’s always good to have an alternate person who can come & take care of the job for you.

    In any event, I work for a R.E. Management Co. & I do secretarial work (Accts. Payable, p/r, phones, all types of clerical work that entails R.E.)process lease renewals, etc…. I’m here already for almost 8 yrs. (Late April will be 8 yrs.)

    I sure can Professional. But there’s only one problem-which is that I need your E-mail Address in order to send you an E-mail cause I don’t know it. Also, what exactly do you want me to e-mail you cause I’m not quite sure what it is that you want from me?

    eclipse, I’m so sorry, I didn’t know that there’s a problem w/ patronizing someone who is part of the coffee rm. So my appologies to you in all sincerity. I hope you forgive me.

    eclipse, I guess I don’t know you well enough yet to know that you were just kidding. Besides, I’m only here in the coffee rm. for just a few days-right?! So I’m not so well versed in everything that goes on here in the coffee rm. If not for this particular thread, I would’ve never known that he’s a repair guy.

    For the record, my screen name is: Hummingbird & not Hummy, nor bird. I like it in it’s full name.

    #1119667

    @not I- “I didn’t know you get paid for being an Eved Hashem.. Definitely not in this world! “

    THAT IS NOT TRUE at all.

    Ayin shema in the second paragraph where it says Hashem will give us rain and good crops for our animals if we love Hashem with all our souls and do His mitzvos. That seems to be reward in this world.

    Someone once explained it to me.

    You are NOT an accountant (or whatever else it is that you do…). First and foremost you are an eved Hashem. Therefore, you are an Eved Hashem who WORKS IN ACCOUNTING. So I guess if anyone asks you, just say, I work in [fill in whatever it is you do that gives you parnassa] rather than I am a [whatever you do]…

    With that said, I am an Eved Hashem, and I find extreme fulfillment as an educator, i.e. I teach for a living… and I LOVE it!
