All the longing...


The sweetest thing in all my life 
has been the longing--to reach the Mountain, 
to find the place where all the beauty came from...
Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing?  
The longing for home?
C. S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

My soul yearns, yes, even pines 
and is homesick for the courts of the Lord; 
my heart and my flesh cry out 
and sing for joy to the living God.

The C.S. Lewis quote and the verse you use remind me of another Lewis quote: "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."
Good thoughts to ponder this weekend.

I love this C.S. Lewis quote and the Psalm you've used. Good things to think about this weekend and coming week. Thanks for sharing!

I attended the online Saddleback Church service today to hear Nick Vujicic. His words truly touched my heart. I can not believe how emotional I still am.
"If I fail, I try again,again,and again.. If you fail, are you going to try again? If you can't get miracle, become one". Nick Vujicic
I love Sundays! Thank you for your wonderful words.

I think the longing means everything. It keeps us desiring to know Him more and more.
