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

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.

Paul lost his sight before his way was shown.
The rest of his life for his writing was known.
Christ's Church through his writings, now greatly has grown,
but once he was selfish old Saul.

Patrick lived a bondage day,
a slave in Ireland, so they say,
until God changed his heart and way.
his Lord of life-giving call.

In Freedom miles and years then changed.
The days he walked God rearranged.
He taught of Christ, Who sins exchanged
for a life of lasting bliss.

He helped his Irish friends receive
New Life in Christ, His Word believe.
Their hearts be knit to Him and cleave,
Success defined as this.

We all have days, that seem as loss.
The good we do can't mount the cost.
We wonder at our heavy cross.
Can God be pleased with us?

But He, Who weaves the tapestry
will bring success His child to free,
and when He's through full liberty
will banish night and dusk.

Success He gives to all, who hear
Salvation's Call within heart's ear.
These days of life are ever clear
in Time and evermore.

Our "Yes!" today receives His Gift
the defeat of His cross He used to lift
the blame of Sin on Him to shift
for He is God's Great door.
(John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10,13)

Giving plants a lovely home
can fill the heart with joy.
Finding space, no more to roam,
relationship's employ.

Nandinas make my heart to sing.
Diminutive bamboo,
clumping bush red berries bring,
and wondrous aspect, too.

Rosemary is a pleasant herb,
that makes a goodly bush.
Its aromatic sweet as a verb,
a dancing nose will push.

Mexican heather is summer hardy
in heat and humidity.
The purple blooms look like a party
on wood and green, we see.

And when we finish tucking in
these "children" in their beds,
we give a drink, a watering in,
and good words as we are led.
