I sit here with an unexpected blessing on my lap sleeping and watch out the window.  Dragonflies swooping and chasing their food.  Smaller insects flitting about.  Trees rustling.  And i am brought to tears because of how close God feels in this beautiful moment.

"In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
And I was lost, oh yeah, oh yeah"

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; 
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. 
May he send you help from the sanctuary 
and grant you support from Zion. 
May he give you the desire of your heart 
and make all your plans succeed. 
May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the Lord grant all your requests.
Now this I know:
The Lord gives victory to his anointed. 
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand. 
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, 
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. 
They are brought to their knees and fall, 
but we rise up and stand firm. 
Lord, give victory!
Answer us when we call!

(from Psalm 20)
