11 March: Val Vibrans

For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

Romans 1:20



A reflection from Val Vibrans, St George Poynton

What kind of God is revealed to us in all the things around as we go about our daily lives?  There is an order and anticipation at the start of each year; the trees with bare branches, then the buds appear and finally the magnificent sight of many different coloured leaves and bark is revealed.  Walking around a churchyard I am aware of all the things that are reliant on one another - trees give shelter from winds and sun, provide refuge and nurture for birds and the earth.  The native flowers and spring bulbs herald a promise of kinder days.  In these difficult times, the sight of God’s creation brings me reassurance and joy and with that a desire to protect the natural growth which offers a haven for many people as they walk by.

Stand a moment in your daily exercise walks and give thanks to our God for such spectacular beauty.  Look around and glimpse what God is like.

A prayer

Lord

Thank you that we can see your hand all around us.  At this time of Lent make us ask questions of ourselves; are we caring for what you have given us.                  

Amen

Val Vibrans,
St George Poynton
