You have no control over


the preeminence of God in THE world.

To love when all of life

Lies down a ne’er ending trail,

Is simple and safe, without strife,

Happily, they lift the veil.


It is more adventurous, however

As seasoned travelers to wend,

The experience path together,

Starting love’s journey over again.


It takes a certain inward spark,

A daring and demanding devotion.

To face, this time not in the dark,

Married life and its commotion.


Anyone can do something initially,

Poorly, mediocre, or superb.

It’s different to repeat it successfully –

To marry IS an action verb.


Young love is a blossomy suit,

Sweet and magnifying.

Mature love is a ripened fruit,

Full and more satisfying.

Been Gone!

Just returned from three week trip to Alaska.  Had a nice visit with the E. Andrew Bryan family.  The reason for a spring trip instead of a hunting-time trip?  Andrew’s oldest and our oldest granddaughter graduated from high school in May.  Got to visit with his family plus Keith, worked on his kids “club house,” and got to see more of Andrew’s adopted state including Anchorage (twice), Wasilla (twice), McGrath, Aniak, Holy Cross (from the air), St. Mary’s, Galena, Ruby (from the air), and a bird’s eye (as well as a bull moose’s eye) view of Fairbanks plus others.  Spoke in North Pole 5/16 (PM), 5/23 (AM) and in Fairbanks 5/31 (AM).  It was an interesting change of pace. The above word “trip” is more descriptive than vacation.  perhaps more detail later.
