What return can I make to the Lord for all that has been given me? This question posed in Psalm 116 is very Ignatian. Tonight as I listened to the inmates talk about a variety of topics, I saw one minister to the other gently and respectfully. He was returning the gift of listening and affirmation. As I head to bed tonight, I can lift a prayer of thanksgiving for this young man who stepped outside of himself to help another. This is the work of the Kingdom.

What shall you return to the Lord this moment?



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!
