Every once in a while I see a growth spurt which often comes out of the darkness of a moment. I have had a couple of insights lately due to some challenging interactions. I see my own humanity and failings as well as the brokenness of the other. I grew up near a mushroom factory and when the wind was not looking kindly upon our neighbourhood we would catch the not so pleasant smell of the manure that encouraged their growth. Apparently the plants grow best in a pile of poop. Humans sometimes also grow best when we are faced with crappy situations too if we are open enough to see that.

What do you do when life presents a growing 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!
