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.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

Funny faces dancing high,
smiling out at me.
Kitty cats and doggies lie
above the mounts I see.

Ocean-going vessels steam
to regions far beyond.
Schools of happy fishes team
in a joyous, loving bond.

Flowers sprout and dance in rows
upon the golden dusk.
Children slide upon the bows,
while learning full to trust.

Dinosaurs and elephants
all lumber slowly by.
Books of pages, thoughts they grant
in readers' grassy lie.

Speeding cars and motorboats
make way throughout the blue.
Sheepish lambs and bearded goats
are baaing over you.

Candy canes and cupcakes call
to hungry passersby.
Pizzas and big hotdogs fall
the need to satisfy.

Baseball bats make homers soar,
and Jordan slams it home.
Lazy days by canoe oar
make thoughts and bodies roam.

State the state you think you see.
Capital idea.
Country homes all shining free,
hopefully to see ya.

Art of hopes and sleepy dreams.
Paint by hand or nod.
Imagination has its themes,
which viewers then applaud.

Dozing off on pillows blest
by He, Who made it all.
Waking with the mind refreshed
as pictures ever call.
