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

"For now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face:
now I know in part;
but then shall I know even as also I am known.
"
(I Corinthians 13:12, KJV)


--------------------------------------


This life is just a grand facade
for all, that's really real.
The One Unseen is truly God.
His Hand doth daily heal.

This life on Earth is but a doll's house
compared to all, that exists.
We leave our parents to live with the spouse.
New life beyond the mist.

The latest iPhone is two cups
and string between them tied
compared to the lasting life of sups
in Christ, we will abide.

"Come further up, come further in!"
The joyful cries arise
for in the land, that knows not sin
the Lion is our prize.

"At Home at last! My country true!
Now, here I e'er belong.
This is the land. I'm finally through.
Ne'er knew I this great song.
"

"Of Narnia. Of England's isle."
"My country, 'tis of thee."
The former gone, I'll be a while,
throughout Eternity.

"Dear Lewis, I would see thy face,
but Jesus see I first.
Imagination is thy grace,
but The Savior is my thirst.
"

"Eye hath not seen, nor ear hath heard,
nor can the heart, yet, know
the things, which God bespoke His Word
to them, that love Him so.
"


--------------------------------------


"But as it is written,
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared
for them that love him.
"
(I Corinthians 2:9, KJV)
