"If we had foolish hopes about human culture, they are now shattered. If we thought we were building up a heaven on earth, if we looked for something that would turn the present world from a place of pilgrimage into a permanent city satisfying the soul of man, we are disillusioned, and not a moment too soon. In ordinary times only the wise realize it. Now the stupidest of us knows it." (C.S. Lewis, Learning in War-Time)
"Thy mercy seat is open still,
Here let my soul retreat
With humble hope attend Thy will,
And wait beneath Thy feet." (Anne Steele, Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul)
And amidst all the seriousness of those passages, came an evening of "Supper Bowl" and "missing Lawrence" (darn that Smartphone autocorrect!). Ahh, fun times. The top photo came from our drive to Donna's Super Bowl Party. Spot the rainbow to the right of the sun!
