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.”
Hungry plants need rain to grow,
and sufficient sun.
Pray because this One you know
has every victory won.
Hungry hearts need living rain,
refreshing parch-ed man.
Saving Truth must be made plain,
redeeming souls by plan.
Servant hearts, the sons of God
have just what lost ones need.
"Give me souls, Your Name applaud,"
these ministers all plead.
"Know the Source. Provide them Grace,
and Mercy by the Book."
Jesus' Goodness in their place
in just one feeble look.
(Numbers 21:1-9, KJV; Key verse: #9)
"Know the Source. Salvation, now.
The Son, now, lives, again."
No gift I bring. Before Him bow,
Redeemer of lost men.
"Rock of Ages"
