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,
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.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

time waits whispers clear
crickets barely chirp a song
quiet peaceful rest

meeting thirsty needs
rain comes down without abate
plants all sit and soak

The treasure found within a field
full worth, a lifetime's gold.
"I must have that for future yield,"
the finder's heart then told.
He found the owner, bought it quick,
with hidden gemstone in the thick.
Transaction ever bold
is worth the losses it has healed.

The life of Man is but a Day.
He lives within a dash.
The treasures keep his full display,
reducing worth to cash.
The wise ones see, that worth's enlarged
by holding stock in Christ so charged.
When dies the living flash
redeem-ed heart lives full for aye.

To glimpse unseen reveals the real
for body's sight is less
than all the vision God doth seal
for those whom He would bless.
The spirit realm holds priceless gem
once purchased by the Blood of Him.
Enjoin your heart caress
the One with Whom we have to deal.

Salvation's hope will cost you naught.
Salvation's Lord has paid
the price to find the one He's sought,
arose from where was laid.
The priceless gem was in Christ's eyes.
Each long-lost sheep made ease despise.
His Father's Love obeyed
to bring Him dear ones duly bought.

Loving plants can burden the heart.
Frosty breath throughout the yard
creates a pang 'bout new day's start.
Will plants yet live when times are hard?

The plants are sheltered overhead,
and 'round four sides with drafty door.
My faith seems weak when nighttime dread
repeats my prayers to Him implore.

We bring the cats and dog inside
to shelter them from cold, hard ground,
but plant humidity abides
in outdoor air of this I've found.

That humans need our tenderest care,
we'd never shake the head, deny,
but often we don't want to share
the hope we've found, that makes us shy.

The human needs a shelter, choice,
protecting from the coldest night.
The homeless can now oft rejoice
of beds and food from awful plight.

But what of plight when life is done?
Do humans have a lasting Home
and Father's arms in which to run?
Or does the cold of lostness cause
the unborn spirit e'er to roam?

We love our plants and hold them dear.
With animals we share our days,
but will our loved ones live in fear,
while evermore we lift our praise?

It's Christ's Commission, that we go
compel all humans, "Come inside!
Forever His great grace we'll know,
and 'neath His wings we'll aye abide."

Twinkling lights with sunny glow,
tingling skin in joy we know,
darkest night as myst'ry grows,
rest enjoyed in peace that shows.

Coffee, tea, the choice of cups
joins our food to help us sup.
Writing silent thoughts all up.
Creativity's my cup.

Is stealing moments just greed?
Or need I to rest and read?
Is nothing done, good as deed?
Peace is found when tension's freed.

Cold the bite, that helps us meet
friend with friend in warm retreat.
Heated cup and filled by meat
close by fire in quilt replete.

Words are good, but silence great
friendship's hope is on the plate.
Sitting while the minutes skate.
Quiet's never out of date.

Wintry ev'ning warms the cold
as the peace from times of old.
Moments made of lasting gold
are words said by tongue untold.

Frozen times as hearts renew
make us joyful when we're through.
Hold the warmth of winter, too
in the deepest part of you.

Anointed before I was born,
assigned to serve, today.
The calling from the oil-filled horn
to each I must obey.

Go through the daily for the new.
The tasks of now are best.
Before the Lord to ever bow
I'll meet each daily test.

To miss the job so long ago
is not the end of the story.
To draw the child to fully know
is all for His Own Glory.

The convert in the wilderness
will not prevent the crowd be saved.
Just speak to those the Lord will bless
no more they'll be just lost, depraved.

Reset your hopes upon the Lord.
His call to do your job today.
Assignments in the living Lord
are what He'd cause us live, obey.
