St. John of Kronstadt on praising God in His creation.
I love to hike through the woods and around water—the peacefulness and beauty drives home for me God’s greatness. While you may not enjoy hiking, St. John of Kronstadt says that nature should draw our minds to God:
Who is it that so wisely, delicately and beautifully arranges and transforms the ugly, the sightless, formless substance of the earth into flowers? Who gives them their wonderful forms? Creator, grant that we may salute in the flowers Thy wisdom, Thy goodness, Thine omnipotence.
"Thank you for your ministry! The Path, Saint of the Day, and The Morning Offering are part of my daily devotions. I am growing in the Orthodox faith as a direct result of your faithful ministry. May God grant you great mercy!"
