For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. [O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!]
This hospital (remodeled) is where I was born, on the banks of the Rock River in Dixon, Illinois. Yes, it’s been remodeled in the past 61 years.
And this is where I was born again as a grade-schooler at First Baptist Church in LaSalle, Illinois. The church has been torn down and a library built in its place. Yes, the heart of the man has been remodeled as well.
