Station 3 – Flowers growing

A moment of quiet

Look around you.

Feel the breeze, the textures of leaves, bark or a wall.

Look at the flowers and plants.

Notice the smell of the earth and growing things

Read a Bible verse…

‘Consider how the wild flowers grow.

They do not labour or spin.

Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these.

If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire,

How much more will he clothe you – you of little faith.’

Luke 12: 27 -28

A Prayer

Father God, thank you for taking care of our everyday needs.

Help us to be content with what we have and to learn to always rely on you to provide us with what we need.


Listen and Reflect

How The Grass and The Flowers Came to Exist, a God-Tale

I suppose

the Lord said:

Let there be fur upon the earth,

and let there be hair upon the earth,


and so the seeds stuttered forward into ripeness

and the roots twirled in the dark

to accomplish His desire,


and so there is clover,

and the reeds of the marshes,

and the eelgrass of the sea shallows

upon which the dainty sea brant live,


and there is the green and sturdy grass,

and the goldenrod

and the spurge and the yarrow

and the ivies and the bramble

and the blue iris


covering the earth,

thanking the Lord with their blossoms.

   Mary Oliver
