Why I Created This Blog (Very Late)


More than those who watch for the morning---
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
Psalm 130

There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious.
CS Lewis, The Last Battle



Blogs come and go and most of the good spots in the blogosphere have been taken. So, why create another one? I’m not a writer but, like Sid the caterpillar, I don’t want to be stranded in a photographic memory. I want to enjoy the sweet nectar in God’s creation and the joy would be incomplete without the praise.
C.S Lewis still said it best:

I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation. ( Reflections on the Psalms)

…Can it be possible
That joy flows through and, when the course is run,
It leaves no change, no mark on us to tell
Its passing? And as poor as we’ve begun
We end the richest day? What we have won,
Can it all die like this?...Joy flickers on
(Narrative Poems)

This blog is for anyone who acknowledges the dilemma of being human. I write and “cover” stuff
I love because I know there is someone in this world who understands them (in all its beauty and horror).
I have had a hard time describing my blog but surely I have calmed and quieted my soul.

For me is not yet late in creating a blog, like they said it's better late than never"... but it is still timely... Now its more poetic and coming from the heart eventhough the message came from the poems and from the bible... but i like it, it is justr a serious type.. Hoping 4 more ideas to come... I'm looking forward for it.. thanks. =) p.s. sori slide i dont know how to operate... but ithink its cool...
