And never leave.
I've been thinking of this photo since I first saw it at Badger's blog.
Doesn't it 'lift up your heart' though? It does mine. Such beauty.
It brings to mind the psalm, "One day within your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere..."
And, "I had rather lie abject on the threshold of the house of God, than dwell in the tents of the wicked."
I could be like the sparrow who finds a home there, close to His altars. If I could, I would be content to remain there, hidden, off to the side, so as not to scandalize anyone.
