At A Village Port ; On Eternity


           a village port in Thessaloniki

"Our hearts are restless until they rest in You."

-Augustine, the Confessions 


The soul groans; O vanity of vanities! Vanity of vanities. All is vanity."

"All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thiether they return again."


O Eternity! Eternity!

O Eternal power, whose high abode, becomes the grandeur of a God.

The glories of Thy mind leave all our soaring thoughts behind.

Thou art in heaven, and men below.

O my soul, be still and know that He is thy God, the Creator.
