We live much of life amid unique choices. Joy is anchored in The One beyond our life.
"Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement.
One fails forward toward success."
C. S. Lewis
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen:
not only because I see it,
but because by it I see everything else."
C. S. Lewis
“I have come home at last!
This is my real country!
I belong here.
This is the land
I have been looking for all my life,
though I never knew it till now...
Come further up, come further in!”
― C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle
“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
|So many cars go zooming by
upon this long white line.
They seem aloft, to nearly fly,
while navigating fine.
The trees are marching briskly past,
though moving not at all.
So firm ensconced, and made to last,
to stand, and not to fall.
Bright sun shines down upon the way.
It lengthens shadow’s mark.
‘Twill soon be done this driving day
to find our rest, and park.
The long white line’s a smooth dear path
to get us to the end
of journey’s way. We’ll eat and laugh
by Christ’s good Hand to mend.
