Life is busy and noisy and full of distraction. It’s easy to miss God’s presence in the midst of it all. Refreshmoments is designed to be a place to come and be reminded that He’s right here, right now; when you’re doing the dishes, taking a bath, making cookies, putting on lip balm.
Refreshmoments is a concept I created a few years ago that pairs anything refreshing (coffee, tea, sweets, a long soak, a good book.....) with thoughts that lead us back to the Source of genuine refreshment. I've paired some of the above with passages from scripture to create brief moments in the day that take us out of the mundane into the meaningful. I hope this blog will be a source to share these thoughts with others who seek to find meaning in the mundane. Not simply an online journal open to voyeurs, but a place of refreshment for whomever may drop by; a place for me to "practice what I preach" and to bring this philosophy back into my everyday life (heaven knows I need it!).
Refreshmoments isn't about being profound, but mindful; learning to see everyday occurances with an eternal perspective. Simple observances that might not change the world, but will hopefully change me, and in turn, give me something to say to you that might enrich your day as well.
I hope you’ll come here not to escape from your daily life, but for a brief retreat. And when you leave, I hope you’ll take with you something that connects to your world and lets you re-enter it with an improved perspective, renewed energy or a sense of peace that you didn’t have when you arrived. Welcome.
