Quote from Augustine


I’ve been praying and thinking about “living in the love the Creator, my Father.”  I came across this quote in one of the books I’m currently reading.  Really touched a nerve.  Maybe it will for you.

“Late have I loved you, beauty so old and so new: late have I loved you.  And see, you were within and I was in the external world and sought you there, and in my unlovely state I plunged into those lovely created  things which you made.”    — Augustine, Confessions

    (That’s the next book on my shelf. I look forward to talking with you about it.)
