Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My script of joy, immortal diet,
y bottle of salvation.
My gown of glory, hopes true gauge,
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

~Sir Walter Raleigh

A hiker, walking for pleasure, likes to choose between several alluring trails.
The pilgrim desires only the road that leads home.

The Best News

While shepherds adored Him
and stars shone above,
Creator Incarnate touched earth with His love.
Revealed in that Baby a glow in His face
Was Heaven's own glory,
God's truth and God's Grace.
Hosanna, hosanna to God up on high;
Sing praise to the Lord and His name magnify,
For He has come near us and dwelt on this sod,
To give us the right to be Children of God.
~Jeffrey B. Davis
