About

tree avatarI am a retired engineer and live happily with my wife in a coastal village in Cornwall, England. We have two children and five delightful grandchildren.

In this blog I will try to share some of the treasures discovered in the trials, challenges and joys in my Christian walk. A heavenly journey, but I hope with my feet on the ground.

What I write, often challenges or brings me joy, but always makes me think. Maybe it will do the same for you, so come and join me on the walk with Father.

This blog comes from my personal walk with Father God, through struggles, fears, trials and joys, that are common to most of us. My own personal ‘speciality’ is that for some years I have experienced chronic fatigue syndrome, CFS – sometimes called ME, myalgic encephalomyelitis – and my wife has had a chronic disabling illness for much longer. This has served to accelerate our healing journey with Jesus – life-changing!

I will explain the reason behind the title. ‘Senior Eagle’, because I am retired and am of a ‘certain age’ and I am learning to fly as in Isaiah 40:29-31.

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

My username ‘wayfarerjon’ – wayfarer because as a Christian I am walking along the way with Jesus and the rest is self-explanatory. By the way, I like boats and  there is a small sailing boat called a Wayfarer that is sturdy and reasonably fast, but that’s another story.

If you would like to know a bit more about my background have a look at “Carer or Sharer” or my wife’s viewpoint in “The 39 Steps”
