"Hildegard of Bingen was a twelfth-century mystic, composer, and author of theology that knitted together nature and spirit, cosmos and soul. She described the Holy Spirit as the Greening Power of God. Just as plants are greened, so we are as well. As we grow up, our spark of life continually shows forth. If we ignore this spark, this greening power, we become thirsty and shriveled. And if we respond to the spark, we flower. Our task is to flower, to come into full blossom before our time comes to an end." Lauren Artress, Walking a Sacred Path, p 15
In this week of celebrating colors, we've come to green. When I read the above paragraph yesterday, I knew it would be on today's blog, along with these images of green-ness. May you know God's Greening Power today.
