A little Mary Oliver Goes a Long Way


It doesn’t have to be

the blue iris, it could be

weeds in a vacant lot, or a few

small stones; just

pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try

to make them elaborate, this isn’t

a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which

another voice may speak.”

Mary Oliver, Thirst

During these long summer days, what are you seeing?  How will your prayer life be uplifted as you attend to the things happening around you?  Sometimes we have only to be reminded that God can inspire us through many ordinary moments and places.  May the summer be filled with those wonder-filled opportunities to connect with God and to hear God’s voice speaking to us.
