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




“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.”

J.R.R. Tolkien



“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

wondrous red aglow
precious joy at end of day
settled peace at night

Wide-eyed faces, sweetly beaming,
What wonders fill their ev'ry day!
Great hope is dancing on display!
Age relents in life redeeming.

Ancient mind it wanders dreaming
throughout the life of youthful play
Wide-eyed faces, sweetly beaming,
What wonders fill their ev'ry day!

Rueful thoughts of youth not gleaming,
his weighted middle on display.
His hope renewed from heart to pray
Heaven's portals young hearts teaming
Wide-eyed faces, sweetly beaming.

sun's strong rays make weak
wilting plants and sleeping cats
run mostly at night

A lasting friendship, cherished, precious gift
requires the care of china on display.
Neglect will push it past the breaking point.

We share so many words, that daily lift
our hearts to hope throughout each coming day
these seasoned words our lives to bless, anoint.

The early days of fervor rarely drift.
Connection's strong, together come what may,
but suddenly a difference of viewpoint.

Foundation's crack has come by little shift.
They're mystified, and have not much to say.
The reason's same of which they both pinpoint.

A thoughtless slip of tongue was lightly spoke
as now the friendship lays in pieces, broke.

built for shade and writing books

up and down they roll
grassy-covered, hopeful place
wonders never cease

Ofttimes the way our lives may go
is neither good nor bad.
The days of sameness ebb to flow
while the heart's not glad nor sad.

We do the tasks of ev'ry day.
We drink and eat and bathe.
We put our work upon display,
but no one's there to rave.

The farmer throws the seeds around
and waits for food to grow.
Some years the crops are rich, abound.
Some years the ground says, "No!"

But even in the years of good,
there are months of same old days
when growing things apart from their mood
just grow without the praise.

The Joys are not for each new morn,
though joy can still be found.
We know successes first are born
in dark and loamy ground.

Sometimes the trudging weighs me down.
Sometimes the fog is bleak.
The days of sameness make me frown.
The waiting makes me seek.

Each talent grows through same old years
of grunting out through joy and tears,
unhelped by hope, ignoring fears,
still striving past all looks and jeers.

The Lord has made this earth His own,
and we through sin it broke.
They march through the years and wait alone,
a by-word and a joke,

but when all Time is fin'lly o'er,
we'll the sameness of the Lord explore.
They'll always be as they were before
in strength, that never breaks the store.

If God can wait six thousand years
to prove, that He has won,
then I can wait through the sameness dear
as His obedient son.

Striving t'ward the goal ahead,
past all sweaty souls,
"Finish first!"
is the nisus sort of thing to do.
