I stand alone
tilting in the wind
needing no one
balance only sand
I stand alone
cold feathers is my plight
I fall like a stone
rejected in my flight
no longer alone
warmer with you there
you calm my inner groan
life together gladly bear
No need to stand off balance and alone.The Bible encourages companions who stand firm and keep us from being foolish.
“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.”
“A man of too many friends comes to ruin,
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?”

Awaken to a dawning day
over that hill lambs frolic and play
it does not promise absence of stones
there will be those times
you will feel all alone
while at another widening turn
as you boldly trudge
you honestly learn
to make your way into the light
suffer not of darkness’ fright
for where you go
persist to be
nearer warmth of heart of shackles free
one foot forward
walking stick my companion
hike into New Year
toshidama cha doko wo megutte mata modoru
New Year’s gift of tea–
where did you go
on your journey back to me?
“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”
― C.S. Lewis
“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
God has never promised to solve our problems. He has not promised to answer our questions… He has promised to go with us.
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
Sharing a Happy New Year with the CDHK folks!
A New Day and a New Year is dawning holding many promises, many turns in the road. May your way be straight and filled with the hope of Light!
