Shedding Skins

Shedding Skins

A science teacher I know was showing me the snake skin that had been shed. Fascinating really. Think about what that surrender must be like–to let it all go and trust that what is new will be what is needed.

Tonight I was at a fundraising supper for newcomers to Canada. I wondered how much they had to shed to stand here before us. What do we cling to that might hold us back from doing what will free us? Do we see God’s hand in it and trust that the Grasp that holds us is not going to drop us?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
