Last week, the kids and I read this poem as part of our breakfast devotional time. I loved it and wanted to share it with you here at Graceland.


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

By the way, the photo was taken in Thailand. We were praying for one of the Thai staffer's grandfathers that just became a follower of Jesus Christ a few months ago. It was a precious time.
