Reflections on Psalms and Trains
Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
--Psalm 73:25-26 (NIV)
May the groans of the prisoners come before you;
by the strength of your arm
preserve those condemned to die.
--Psalm 79:11 (NIV)
"But my people would not listen to me;
Israel would not submit to me.
So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts
to follow their own devices."
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
--Psalm 84:5,10 (NIV)

I love trains.
You can go anywhere, do anything you want. Even more so than with cars.
Be anyone you want.
"Then why are you still here?"
"Those weren't my trains."
