On life’s Emmaus Road

Walking closely with thee

Grace of Jesus bestowed

Calvary’s path sets us free


Wilderness gathers near

Walking down evil’s road

Christ’s love making it clear

Sinful darkness now implodes


Life’s burdens weighing down

Walking with Christ, our Lord

Mercy begins countdown

Redemption coming on board


Heaven’s kingdom awaits

Walking each faithful path

Salvation opens gate

Jesus bridges judgement’s wrath

You do what you can for as long as you can, and when you finally can’t, you do the next best thing.

Unfortunately, many people do not consider fun an important item on their daily agenda.

Chuck Yeager (1923-2020) was a United States Air Force aviator.  He rose to a rank of Brigadier General, but he had preciously been well recognized for his flying exploits.  Besides being a flying ace, he became the first pilot to exceed the speed of sound on a level flight in 1947.

Final Quest

From Colossians 1:19-20:  “For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through Him God was pleased to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of His cross.”

Haunting scene, filled with greed

Darkness shadows with fear

Every path now seems blocked

Cross waiting to appear


Journey of life backs up

Selfishness cuts in front

Noise in streets never dims

Cross waiting to confront


Sorrows keep piling up

Every heart feeling stress

Shattered hope, faith absent

Cross waiting to address


Life refreshed, poured from grace

Compassion fills His heart

Savior’s body and blood

Cross ready to impart


Mountains of sin paid for

Mercy now comes to rest

Blessing of Father’s love

Cross completes final quest

From 1 Corinthians 1:18:  “For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
