I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Insults, injuries, and illnesses

It seems like a larger number of people than normal are hurting this year, whether financially, physically, or emotionally.  This is the time of year, though, when celebrate a great gift -- the gift of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  No matter how badly you feel, no matter how much you hurt, no matter how empty your pockets may be, each of us is richer because of His birth, life, and death.  I pray for all people everywhere that this Christmas season will ease that pain, that something will happen to bring joy and happiness to each one's life.
