A Long and Winding Road

It goes without saying that the life of faith is a difficult one. I have discovered that my more recent works, those in the last 10 years or so, reflect that difficulty more than the earlier ones. I guess that's a function of age and my health struggles.

At any's one from 2012.


My eyes
Are dim
And my muscles ache.
The years have
Taken a toll too great.

But I will not bow
To time or age,
I will not stop
Or turn aside,
I will not falter,
Will not fail
For there are still
  New heights to scale.

My Savior gave
His life for me,
Shed His blood
On Calvary.
How can I give any less
To Him than my very best?

So on I go,
Taking another step

Following Him.
