“We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about … when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea.
We are far too easily pleased.”
C.S. Lewis could paint a picture with far less than a thousand words.
What have I become,
My sweetest friend,
Everyone I know,
Goes away in the end,
And you could have it all,
My empire of dirt,
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt,
I wear this crown of thorns,
Upon my liars chair,
Full of broken thoughts,
I cannot repair,
Johnny Cash’s haunting voice seeps into the corners of your soul.
“Truth, what is truth?”
Pilate’s famous question of Jesus…right before he allows him to be crucified.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart,
Mind and Strength.”
“Do unto others as you’d have them do to you.”
Jesus Christ, when asked, what the greatest commandment of God was.
This is not a religious blog, though I am a Christian.
I’m just a man…thinking about Truth
And knowing Truth is simple and isn’t relative.
That’s the hardest part…the torture if you will is
Knowing the right thing to do it and doing it,
Every time, when even when I think no one is looking.
(just like I tell my kids to do)
