All Its Glory



Spring has flourished this week. The natural world has awoken and is stretching out its limbs in all its glory. Walking anywhere is an absolute treat as colours are splashed all over the place, crying out for our attention.

As I walked through my neighbour the other day, I wondered if humans were a little like nature. Some of us are quick to bloom and to grow–to take the risk of opening up early, knowing that has consequences. Others of us unfurl our true beauty later, waiting for our moment be in the spotlight. Sometimes, we wait to be seen, quietly like a crocus popping up in the wildest places. Other times, we set the world ablaze with our joy.

I love this time of year. The fragrant smells, the luscious splashes of colour, the heat on my skin, and the chirping birds all beg my soul to stop and rejoice to be alive. This is Glory in fine garments; God has decorated the earth extravagantly. Praise be to the Creator!



Reflection Questions

What catches your senses most about spring?

What would you compare yourself to in the natural world?


Like an artist, the Creator experiments with colour and sound, adding a little of this, and more of that until a MasterPiece is complete. We stand back and relish the outcome, ever grateful for the exhibition. Amen.

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!

    Such a beautiful photo Suzanne. How I loved spring in Wpg! You usually get a real spring there. When we bought our home on 714 Waterloo, I was so excited to start planting flowers. I had read and researched which plants would do well in certain locations, etc. Every morning during that time of year I would take a quick peak to see what was poking through the earth and track each day how much something has grown. I loved RH at that time of year, walking the streets on route to Assisinboine. I see spring as a time for growth, everything coming back to life, everyone and everything feeling the new freshness of it all. Enjoy Suzanne, I see Wpg getting warm temps💜👣
