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

slowly things all grow
often days or months of time
glory blossoms new

The situation could be rather tough
without the hope of finding gold within.
The One we serve is every whit enough
to bring us good when souls against us sin.

We do much better when we think the best
of fellowmen upon this Terran sod.
The actions, that may seem a selfish test
become the heat, that's used in us by God.

To think, that God in gentle process breaks
the ugliness in our own outer shell
removes some pain, that otherwise it makes
deliv'ring us from our own inner hell.

The dinginess and crust of ore is gone,
that gold may shine and stand His floor upon.

cold and bitten by the wind
longing for the spring

days of bitter cold
nights of dark and brilliant moon
plants know restful sleep

Waiting is a tough assignment.
Looking for something to happen soon.
How do you know you’re doing as meant?
Short the distance ‘tween wise and buffoon.

End of the line, we’re waiting all day.
For Hope to stay hopeful, we need a new tune.
Cloudy the sky with wisps on display.
Dark is the night without a slight moon.

O, where is the mentor, we thought was our guide?
So where is the goal, we thought of as good?
Is waiting the task to break all our pride?
Is thinking a gift or mentally wood?

The Day of Hope is evermore the same.
Restored 'twill be for human hearts, that cry
by waiting on the One, Whose greatest Name
has Grace, that on repentant souls apply.

The Day of Hope has Peace to escort all,
who residence in Christ, Whose merits blessed
now rest upon the heads of those, who call
on Him, Who victored over ev'ry test.

The Day of Hope, it evermore shall be,
Salvation to completed souls of Earth,
who rest forgiven in The Son of He,
Who showed us Mercy, gifting us new birth.

The warmest blanket, Hope is blest fore'er,
the canvas of His greatest love and care.

Eternity,
lesson taught,
lost in thought.
Wondering inside of me.

Some day live there,
joy and peace,
full release.
Care.
