Sixty-eight is not too old to dream. I dream of what has passed, I dream of what lies ahead. I'm still getting used to this retirement thing. It seems I am just as busy as before, though now I have more choice about what I am busy with. I do have more time now to think and to dream. I enjoy my monkish mornings.

When I lean back and dream ahead I think of days on the trail, endless days, or at least six months of days. And why should not my entire life be days on the trail? For I am on a journey, and closer now to the end than I was before. Each day is a day on the journey, a day of putting one foot in front of the other, one step at a time. I am in no hurry. I have my whole life to finish this journey.

Hiking the Appalachian Trail will take five million steps; I expect my life journey will require somewhat more than that. But it's still one step at a time, with my dreams leading me on and unfolding around me as I walk my waking dream.

So help me, Jesus, for you are my way, my truth and my life.

Do somen about ur jealousy
Have you ever get jealous over someone's talent? Or think someone is better than you, and you are nothing? Have you ever said to someone "I wish I have your talent?" If that's you, here is my tips for you. Instead of just dwelling on that sour feeling of jealousy, do something about it. First: 1) Remember: No one pops out good works like magic, no talent would shine without hard work. When you are envying, or complimenting other's "Talents" you are really complimenting their results of hard work. No matter how talented one can be, without hard work talents are NOTHING.    a) Everyone has a different starts, different envi

Jesus
'You don't believe in Jesus?' 'No' 'What can you believe in?' 'I'm Hellenic polytheist' 'What?' 'I believe in the Greek Gods' '………….' 'Zeus…. Aphrodite…. Athena…' 'How can you not believe in Jesus?' 'I just don't' 'Its not real' 'What?' 'Those are just myths' 'And what do you think Christianity is?' 'The truth' 'My gods are real to me' 'They aren't real' 'Dude, are you serious? Religion is based on faith.' 'Not this, Jesus is real.' 'No Christianity is based on the faith and trust that Jesus was real. Show me one piece of evidence that Jesus lived.' '…' 'That's what I thought.'
