From the Pulpit & Into the Garden: "Grow Where You are Planted – Scatter Seeds of Inspiration!"

The Little Things

“Follow your path inspired by God, inspired by the Spirit.”*

Where are we now? It is time to focus on the “Little Things” in life.

Take time to smell a flower, pull a weed, cut back overgrowth. Tend to the garden in your own yard. Make sure everything is ready for winters nap; prepare and wait.

This is also a time of introspection as you move about the garden. Pay attention to the “Little Things.” Watch for a butterfly or dragonfly; imitate the gentleness of movement.

Make sure your own steps are soft; barely noticed.

There is so much more to see and learn. Slow down your pace.

“Make us more aware of the goodness of God and how well he tends his garden.” (St. Therese)
