“The earth will bloom with abundant flowers and rejoice with joyful song!” –Isaiah 35:2

A Reflection by Sister Mariel Rafferty, MHSH

Cactus 2 closeupA cactus plant!
A single flower…its first!
A dry desert can bloom,
Its flower a sign…
…of promise
…of hope
…of resurrection
…of new life!

As the spring rains of the month of May water God’s world,
Nature springs forth in the awesome beauty of new life!

MOM BLOG_dogwoods_and_azaleas 05As we experience the life of God’s Spirit within us,
The winter deserts of our lives give way
To the graced flowering of springtime…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We ponder:

What can I do to bring to new life the desert areas in my own heart?
How can I extend God’s compassion and love to others to transform
their desert experiences into springtime peace and love?
