Thursday Prayer

"A fish cannot drown in water, a bird does not fall in air.
In the fire of creation, gold does not vanish; the fire brightens.
Each creature God made must live in its own true nature;
how could I resist my nature, that lives for oneness with God?"

~~St. Mechthild of Magdeburg

We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.
Romans 14:7-8
