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
https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/1059917-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.

Hurry up to get it down.
Write, and write, again.
Edit 'til the weary frown
will finally let you win.

Word Count: Ever-present foe,
insatiable its gut.
This task doth not a subject know.
Each bard must crack this nut.

A poem of a springtime flower.
Essays teach of God.
Novels must have lasting power
to make all eyes applaud.

The Israelites must find their straw,
complete their tale of bricks,
but writing ever has a law,
"Get focus! Get it quick!"

The deadline barks as writers jump,
"2000 in a day!"
The ready pen will noggin thump,
demanding best display.

So, hurry up or not at all.
Just write and write, again.
"You've got a job!" it ever calls.
"You're paycheck has to win!"

Some day we'll write to edify,
but now, "Just get 'er done!"
The deadline barks. We must comply
with subject best or none.

The gift of friends of ages all,
extends beyond today.
I'm thankful for the privileged call
to act within this play.

Respect is due the human race
to old and young from God.
We bless the owners of each place,
and workers we applaud.

The owners bring resource to bear,
and workers gifted hands.
Directors lead us and they share
the smoothness of good plans.

Song and dance brings joy to heart.
Smiles bring light to minds.
Blessed friendships, that we start
last throughout Life's long times.

Newsies sell the headlines, rare,
although some may repeat.
Entertainment lifts from care,
and gets us on our feet.

Jack and Katherine have grown
to be more than "just friends."
Racetrack rules New York as known
by song and dance, that blends.

The victory of Life we see
is Win-Win from the start.
I bless you as you bless me,
and Joy then fills each heart.

Predators fly.
Doggie retreats.
She rests inside the house.
Fortress blocks out the bad.

Christ, the Lord, has risen, today.
He's the Fortress of our safety.
Distress is but a day.
Shalom is lived fore'er.
