..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

God is Not Far Away From Thee...

God is not far away from thee...
Thou, like the inn of old,
hast been full of other guests;
thy affections have entertained other lovers;
wherefore salvation has not yet come
to thy house.
--William Penn, 1682
