The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:5-6)

Mary Oliver | The Heavens Have No Fist
Poet Mary Oliver died in January at eighty-three. She had a gift for expressing in words what she experienced of nature. Her numinous encounters were of the everyday/anywhere variety - in the woods, at the marsh, with her dog.
Sometimes I need only to stand wherever I am to be blessed.
(from It Was Early)
Her theology inspired a 2011 prayer that I re-post to honor her memory.
