eagle’s flight – The Road Ahead – 2/19/15

I’m in a period of underemployment currently, working as a contract writer doing performance reviews of network switches. These 3rd party reviews are used by marketing departments to let people know how “my switch is better than your switch”.  And … Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – still working – 4/21/14

I seem to be getting older. And for me as a working adult, that means I’m not as quick at learning new computer languages as I was. I’m not as eager to jump in and do a quick competitive programming experience needed to join Facebook. I failed the Google interview test, because I didn’t know terms now taught in CS courses. So it becomes increasingly up to me to figure out how my experience can be used in the job marketplace. Fortunately, I have made friends through the years who respect things I’ve done and look out for me. Fortunately I continue to draw closer to God who has promised to provide and opens up new perspectives and opportunities for me to walk in. Continue reading

eaglesflight – the gathering – and in conclusion – 12/6/13

Jesus’ sermon on the mount. ends with a number of interesting musing points. I’ve found my most effective musings are when I try and walk out, to incorporate some (perhaps small) part of what I’m reading into how I live. And as I do that, I uncover parts of me I’ve not been aware of. I begin to see in the midst of life what I must let go of and what treasures I must walk more deeply into. Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – rafting – just like us – 9/17/13

Looking at my own callings, and the clumsy way I grow up into Love. I get discouraged, but find a friend in Simon the fisherman, whom Jesus named Peter. I find, I too learn to see with God’s eyes in fits and starts, but all too often see through my own preconceptions or through the eyes of others who would like to believe the Universe operates as they have made it.
(see especially the story in Matthew 16, Luke 22, and John 21) Continue reading

Eagle’s Flight – the gathering – Abraham – 8/19/13

So what does the walk of faith look like?
What hope do we walk towards in our life?
What hope does God provide?
How is that hope kept alive as we walk?
And what relationship are we hoping to have when we get there?
And what relationship do we have while we walk?

How is my hope kept alive? … on fire? Continue reading

endings and beginnings – a wedding – 5/9/13

The wedding of my daughter, went off well, the right event at the right time. We forgot the requisite number of important things to keep it real, but the people interactions were the most important. And now I’ve mostly recovered and am back working at my usual list of occupations (and preoccupations J ) but the new completeness of these two joined is companion to a new emptiness as she now calls home a place removed from us. Continue reading

ah, to walk the way (1) – 12/28/12

As Christmas winds down, and is put away, I am returning by chewing on my scriptures to pull me back into the everyday. I am surprised to find a resonance with the psalmist of 119, who knows what’s good for her, and has a deep desire to walk it out, but can’t be relied on to stay with it, to keep the commands. She* keeps asking for help, and so do I. Continue reading
