eagle’s flight – on coming clean – 11/25/14

Poetry is my calculus. It’s my way of laying out where I am, what I’m thinking, what my opportunities and roadblocks are so that I can look them over and hand them to God for help in moving past the roadblocks and being thankful for the growing places. And sometimes, these explorations resonate beyond myself and I delight in hearing where they have touched others. 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

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

the way – the way – 1/24/13

My faith keeps me walking forward, when I don’t see very far ahead. I fall back into myself and what I believe is tested by the emptiness around me. My cues and prompts that have guided me from outside, are silent or find no purchase on my soul.
So I come back to the God I know, and take another step. I have nowhere else to go. 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
