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 Day We Celebrate Loves

Recalling today the earliest and the best *Valentine*.

This from the Love that has never failed or disappointed.

This is the Love that is the sustaining grace of our days.

This is the continuous comfort to and rejoicing of our hearts.

Loved before the dawn of time
Chosen by my Maker,
Hidden in my Savior.
I am His and He is mine,
Cherished for eternity.
~ hymn by Stuart Townend
