Speaking of home…

September 25, 2009 — 1 Comment

Lord, let us make our home again in you and thus avoid being lost. Long ago we left it–for what is our home but your Eternity, which does not disappear because we have deserted it!

Augustine– Confessions 4, 16

Now let us hear, brothers and sisters, let us hear and sing. Let us pine for the city where we are citizens. By pining, we are already there. We have already cast our hope, like an anchor, on that coast…

Augustine — Commentary on Psalm 64, 3

and a bonus quote by C.S. Lewis:

All joy…emphasizes our pilgrim status;

always reminds, beckons, awakens desire.

Our best havings are wantings.

    loved the anchor quote…Jeffrey Anchor's mom Now let us hear, brothers and sisters, let us hear and sing. Let us pine for the city where we are citizens. By pining, we are already there. We have already cast our hope, like an anchor, on that coast…Augustine — Commentary on Psalm 64, 3
