"At any moment and in any circumstance, the soul that seeks God may find Him, and practice the presence of God." Brother Lawrence
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.
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.
