    We don this night
    astride our fight
    a certain brilliant hue
    an earnest sense
    of expectance
    above the fog we view.

    Grand harbors spurned
    long night lamps burned
    through hardship we have pressed
    hard pushed by sail
    past thief and gale
    awaiting hearth and rest.

    What’s gained was gained
    what’s lost was lost
    the past is paid in full
    release the bonds
    from back beyond
    that anchor down the hull.

    What’s done is done
    we can’t rerun
    darker days full spent
    but still we stand
    in firm command
    o’er future choices sent.

    Chart clear the course
    pull canvas taut
    tread light upon the foam
    let no fate swerve
    or foe unnerve
    our final race toward home.

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.
