Bilbo Speaks for My Heart

Bilbo speaking to Gandalf in Part One: The Fellowship of the Ring

“I am old, Gandalf. I don’t look it, but I am beginning to feel it in m heart of hearts. Well preserved indeed!” he snorted. “Why, I feel all. thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread.”

p. 58
(Ballentine Paperback Edition)

I know the feeling Bilbo. I know it well.

Oh but there is hope ahead.
I’m going to see Jesus. Wonders await!
