Oh Lord, so far today I’ve not hurt myself nor anyone else.

I’ve not coveted my neighbour’s tools, and I’ve not damaged any of mine.

I’ve not been led into temptation to buy one of those fancy laser guided saws that Norm uses on The New Yankee Workshop.

I’ve not messed up any of my projects, nor had any cause to take Thy name in vain.

For this I give thanks but Lord, I’m gonna get out of bed pretty soon, and then, I’ll need all the help you can spare….

LOL…Maybe that should read I’m gonna go out to the shop now. Maybe he heard me cussing when I found out I mixed up my styles with my rails…again.

Ah yes, finding out that 7/16” instead of 1/2” indeed became significant….that prayer would come in handy.
