Every flower is fragrant through the power of the Holy Spirit, in a delicate flow of aroma and tenderness of color; the beauty of the Great contained in what is small. Praise and honor to God, Who gives life, Who spreads forth the meadows like a flowering carpet, Who crowns the fields with golden ears of wheat and azure basilisks, and the soul – with the joy of contemplation.
+Akathist Glory to God for All Things
God created the world as beautiful, even in its current fallen state. How can our lives reflect that beauty?
Think of ways you can add beauty to your life: through the physical world, through contemplative prayer, and through caring for others.
Lord, thank You for creating intricate beauty in our world. Help my life to be part of that beauty through Your Holy Spirit.
