and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O LORD of hosts,
my King and my God.
Happy are those who live in your house,
ever singing your praise.
They say Jesus came and gave us a kinder, gentler Gospel. Oh the Good News of Jesus Christ tames the harshness of the Hebrew Scriptures, they say.
I think they don't read their Bibles very well.
He doesn't even say "Home is where the heart is" or "Your home will be with me." No. The sparrow gets a home, the swallow a nest. Even foxes have holes. But if you follow Jesus, home becomes whatever kindness is shown to you along the way.
And you're not even supposed to look back and grieve that.
I should just stick with the psalms.
