- There's no place like home
- There's no place like home!
- --Dorothy (L. Frank Baum), The Wizard of Oz
- How lovely is your dwelling place,Lord Almighty!My soul yearns, even faints,for the courts of the Lord;my heart and my flesh cry outfor the living God.Even the sparrow has found a home,and the swallow a nest for herself,where she may have her young—a place near your altar,Lord Almighty, my King and my God.Blessed are those who dwell in your house;they are ever praising you.
- Psalm 84
- But how can one's yearning soul find a home with God, in His courts, in Him? Where must we go?
- "Thou art higher than my highest and more inward than my innermost self..."
- --Augustine of Hippo
"Thou art close, O God..."
"Closer than anything that is close..."
