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

Timbrous voice
assures with peace.

Smooth word choice
to give release.

Hopeful
and deep,
fatherly,
rocks to sleep.

Tarnish spots
on tools galore.

Useful ones
of times before.

Throw away
rusted hopes.
New the day...

Start.

Beaten,
Bruised,
and
Losing blood.

Jesus died in shame.

Malicious souls
would end His Life.

But Who laughs last?

Every year they go to town
on floats and the back of a horse.
Others march and make a sound
with instruments of course.

The ones, who walk and show the town
their group in the greatest way
are flanked by some, who jump around,
gymnastic athletes they.

Young ladies crowned by town or school
adorn some modern coach.
The adulation must be cool,
so cheered by many folks.

The education floats are great.
They teach us to serve the best.
What scientists have learned of late
show we are truly blessed.

But one must wonder how it's done,
that ev'ry year's the same.
We're marched toward the carnival and its fun,
excited as we came.

A thought's perplexing as it's true.
"Though great improvements have been made,
the name is never more as due.
"It's still just 'fair' as always played."

"We jump and joy and do cartwheels,
expressing all we are.
"The wondrous things we meet in meals
are ecstasies by far."

"A piece of boar in a sizzling pan
enraptures all our souls.
"Some cackled shells by chef's great plan
bring the joy of feast so whole."

"The tubers of the loamy sod
affect us in great ways.
"They're baked and dressed for king or God
or fried, in bowls displayed."

"'To speak is human, to moo bovine'
is a phrase not of good (the word we can't use.)'
"Yet utter joy is the fluid fine
as a serial bliss we can't refuse."

"We pan the land from yeast to west
in search of dough and crust.
"We slather the slice with marginal best
and share with those we trust."

"From cherries so red we gain beans so green.
It's roasted end so brown.
"Enjoy the cup so loved and preened
with pleasure going down."

"Again, we sip a boiling cup
with leaves of color rare.
"The future tannins biff us up
as do white, green, and reds with care."

"On the wing, we sing of the bird in the spring,
'til munch it's bliss on a plate.
"Some gnaw it breaded as their thing,
but for me mild and mellow's great!"

"We're tossed about in soul and mind
to find a healthful bowl,
"but spring we fast to leaves so kind,
oiled slick to make us whole."

"Best Buds we are. Enjoy we do
our stationed pleasures blessed.
"We make your days of wonder through
when some new thing you test."

By faith, we have the Life we live.
We move from day to day.
By faith, Salvation is a Gift.
We Joy and work and play.

By faith, we open up our hands
to show the ones we are.
By faith, our futures, all our plans
are safe from near to far.

By faith, our sins are dead and gone
through Calv'ry's open grave.
By faith, our Hope is lasting won
by One, whose no one's slave.

By faith, though Past accuse us sore
the Future stands secure.
By faith, I know that Life is more
than this lone earthly tour.
