You're Never Too Old


“You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis

On St. Patrick’s Day, a salute to the writing of Clive Staple (C.S.) Lewis, born in Ireland and one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century.

Despite his quote above, Lewis started young, beginning to write in his parents’ attic at age 7 and never really stopping.  He wrote more than 30 books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands each year.  C.S. Lewis's most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Screwtape Letters and, of course, the universally acknowledged The Chronicles of Narnia. 

His impact is ever-lasting, and he himself had a great love of literature and for what it stood.   "Literature," he said, "adds to reality, it does not simply describe it.  It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives already have become."

An Irish Blessing

May your days be many
and your troubles be few.
May all God's blessings
descend upon you.

May peace be within you
may your heart be strong.
May you find what you're
seeking wherever you roam.
