Life

Let me but live my life from year to year,

With forward face and unreluctant soul.

Not hurrying too, nor turning from the goal;

Not mourning for the things that disappear

In the dim past, nor holding back in fear

From what the future veils; but with a whole

And happy heart, that pays it’s toll

To youth and age, and travels on with cheer.

So let the way wind up the hill or down,

O’er rough or smooth, the journey will be joy;

Still seeking what I sought when but a boy,

New friendship, high adventure, and a crown,

I shall grow old, but never lose life’s zest,

Because the road’s last turn will be the best.

~Henry van Dyke~

Enjoy Life

If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time.  Not tomorrow, nor next year, nor in some future life after we have died.  The best preparation for a better life next year is a full, complete, harmonious, joyous life this year.  Our beliefs in a rich future life are of little importance unless we coin them into a rich present life.  Today should always be our most wonderful day.

God Is Awake

Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones;  and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace.  God is awake.

An Infinite God

DSCF0174a

An infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children.  He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others.

Fountain Of Youth

IMG_3037ab

There is a fountain of youth:  It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love.  When you learn to tap this source, you will have truly defeated age.

Let Go

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one we have waiting for us.
