(Painting: "The Crucifixion," by Giotto, c.1325)
O God, we belong to You utterly.
You are such a Father
that You take our sins from us
and throw them behind Your back.
You clean our souls,
as Your Son washed our feet.
We hold up our hearts to You:
make them what they must be.
- George MacDonald, 19th-century Scottish pastor and writer
