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.

Once And For All


"It is finished!'

It is not the sigh of relief at having reached the end of things.

It is the unutterable joy of the artist who, putting the last touches on the picture that has engrossed him for so long, sees in it the realization of all his dreams and vision and can nowhere find room for improvement.

Only once in the world's history did a finishing touch bring a Work to absolute perfection;

and in that day of days a single flaw would have shattered the hope of the ages."

~Frank W. Boreham

"For Christ, the Messiah Himself

died for sins once for all,

the Righteous for the unrighteous,

the Just for the unjust,

the Innocent for the guilty -

that He might bring us to God."

~I Peter 3.18, Amp.
