Get some Refreshment

I went hiking last weekend. It was fairly hot, so any shade and refreshment was welcome. There was a tiny path going off the main path, going up steep to the side of the rock. Maybe a bit tricky and tiring, but definitely worth it. After a short climb, I found a little spot of pure beauty with a natural sun-heated shower – just what you need on that warm and sunny day.

That made think that sometimes it is well worth it to stray off our ingrained habits and thought-patterns and explore new ideas – and suddenly, we’ll discover an oasis, new ideas, new realizations, motivations, or simply come to rest. In Faith similarly, it is good to be courageous and explore new paths. God, in his grace and love is infinitely bigger than all we can imagine and dream of, so it will do me well to sometimes change my routines and be surprised by him. Let your soul be refreshed and renewed. May this be our prayer!

Fresh & New

Even though it is the warm season, some mornings have still been exceptionally cold. But instead of being frustrated about it (who wouldn’t want some warm sunshine now?), I try to look at the beauty of it. It is what it is and I can’t change it, so why be angry about it? Rather, look for reasons to be grateful and in wonder, still.

Your own way.

Life is not always easy, that is true. Sometimes it can be complicated. But I am convinced that one day, we will all find our own unique way, our own path. Don’t just follow down the road that everybody has followed – be courageous, follow your heart and your dreams. You might discover something wonderful – YOURSELF.
