The Beauty Around Us


As I walked to work today, my eyes were still on vacation channel. They sought out beauty, lingering on the colours and smells that stimulated the senses–the fuchsia flowers, the bread from the bakery, a smile on the face of a passerby. Small, simple blessings in a day will infuse it with peace and joy if we pay attention. 

I am slowly unpacking the lessons of my trip. What did you learn so far this summer that might transition you into the fall as a different person?



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!
