I am a New Yorker by birth, a Kansas Citian by choice and a Christian by grace. I am married, have two grown children and two grandchildren. I have worked as a soldier, technician, software designer and a pastor. I am now retired. I began blogging here in late 2004 but the title of this blog came to me in the late 1980s. Since then I have become convinced that life is all about redemption. We often don't see hardship, trial and suffering through God's redemptive eyes. Really, pain makes no sense unless you believe that God can use it.. eventually.. for good.. to help another traveler.. to comfort someone who is hurting. To that end I post a daily devotional thought and a prayer reflecting on the teachings of the scriptures. My hope is that I might encourage you in some small way.
