The Sanctuary

quillIt amazes me, awes me beyond my ability to appreciate, the fact that as beautiful as the sanctuary of God’s created universe is, we are now His sanctuary, His tabernacle, each of His disciples individually and collectively as his Church. How can that be?? And yet, He declares it to be so! (1 Corinthians 6:19,20) I don’t understand it, but who am I to argue?  Here is another beautiful installment by Niko, (A.K.A. Ancient Skies) that reminds me of this deep and significant truth.  Thanks, Niko!!

The Sanctuary

by Ancient Skies



The greatest sanctuary ever created, was never made with human hands

it was never lined with gold, or decorated with diamonds.

It was however, always dressed in green, covered

in blue, with white clouds as decorations

crowned with pine trees, and a river

running through.


And without a doubt the creation teaches me

that every single one of us, was made.

And our treasure lays deep

Tends toward TMI, so here's the short list: guitar and banjo (both of which have been much neglected as of late), bicycling (ibid), dogs, very black tea, and contemplating and commenting on deep philosophical thoughts about which I have had no academic or professional training. Oh, also reading, writing, but I shy away from arithmetic.
