a quote from a friend

q. shenaynay

"Welcome, welcome, Jesus, what way soever Thou come, if we can get a sight of Thee! And sure I am, it is better to be sick, providing Christ come to the bedside and draw by the curtains, and say, "Courage, I am Thy salvation," than to enjoy health, being lusty and strong, and never to be visited of God."

~ Samuel Rutherford, 1600-1661, an excerpt from a letter
