Example text

It leaves you always aching with longing not so much for more of the same as for whatever it is, deep within and far beyond both it and yourself, that makes it beautiful. “The beauty of holiness” is how the Psalms name it (29:2), and “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee” (42:1) is the way they describe the ache and the longing.
