Provisions

God provided the Israelites with manna in the desert, when they were in need of food. God provided water from a rock, when they needed drink.

Jesus turned water into wine, when the wedding party was running out. He fed the hungry crowds with a few loaves and fishes. He provided living water to the woman at the well. And so on…

God nourishes us daily through caring people, through our prayer and reflection, through the Eucharist, through the beauty of nature, through meaningful work and service, through our creative activity, and so on…

I am nourished when I venture out into nature with my camera. The various shades of summer green are nourishing to my soul. The fecundity of nature mirrors the creative spirit of God holding us and all of creation in loving embrace.

“I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever.” (John 6:51)

    1. Thanks, Lynn. Most of the images are from the Fairfield Audubon Sanctuary. The pond with benches and the rainbow image were taken on our campus.
