More about me:

As I enter my second retirement, I can only express my deep appreciation to God for the opportunity to touch the lives of the amazing students here at Creighton.  After 40 years as a civil engineer in the construction industry, I felt that I had completed my life’s work.   God, however had a different plan – a MUCH BETTER plan.  He opened a door to Creighton University and its Energy Technology Program which I would never have imagined.  An opportunity to teach and lead a program that has proven to be some of the most rewarding and satisfying work of my life. 
That process has only further refined my total trust & faith in following God and seeking Jesus with all my heart.  His plans are always so much better than anything I could have ever imagined.
But of course work could never be the top priority of my life.  Over the years, I have been engaged with a truly amazing church with an un-apologetic commitment to Jesus that has changed my life and future forever.  My wife Linda and I have four children,  4 grandchildren and 5 foster  “grandchildren” that have all been such a daily blessing in so many ways.
I am looking forward to see what God has in mind for this next stage of my life. 

Writing these reflections:

It is not surprising that God provides these reflection opportunities with the precise readings that I need to hear at that specific time.  Spending time in prayer as I write & rewrite each Daily Reflection opportunity is truly a blessing.  My prayer is that God can use these thoughts to bless you as well.
