Hey Friends, Welcome to my new website!! Wait, you made a new website Paula? Yes!
Okay, so here’s the story:
Simply Coffee & Jesus was born in 2019 when I first started writing; It was my very first website. I chose the name because, as you know, I Love Coffee A LOT! Anyhow, It was when I used to wake up at O’dark thirty before the chickens that I’d have several cups of coffee and my Jesus time, I’d read my Bible, do some study and listen to K-Love Radio and bop to Jesus songs all the while praising and worshiping Him.
Then in 2021, A Blessed Mess was born just out of my everyday mess. It’s where I wrote about Jesus and a little bit of everything else, like my chronic illness journey and writings, my not-so-adventures in crafting, and where I share my Momentum Influence Network Book and movie/musical reviews.
Several months ago, when I wrote on each site, I began to feel that all too familiar touch, tug, and nudge that I have learned to recognize as God redirecting me. But Redirecting me to…what? When I began thinking about combining both websites and making a new one, that touch was there. So I did. I retired Simply Coffee & Jesus And A Blessed Mess. But what was I going to name the new one? What does writing for Jesus and his kingdom and my everyday mess look like and mean to me? And.
Gracefilled Moments was born.
What’s a Gracefilled Moment?
A grace-filled moment is a moment of unexpected beauty, joy, or connection that reminds us of God’s presence in our lives. It can be a slight moment, like a bird singing in a tree, or a larger moment, like a life-changing encounter with someone.
Grace-filled moments can happen anywhere and at any time. They’re often unexpected, but they can also be sought out. Grace-filled moments remind us that God is always with us, even during our everyday lives. They can bring us joy, peace, and hope. So be on the lookout for them, and don’t be afraid to savor them when you find them.
What can a Gracefilled Moment look like?
—You’re walking through the park, and you see a beautiful flower. You stop to smell it, and you feel a sense of peace.
—You’re having a tough day, but then you hear a song that makes you smile. The song reminds you of all the good things in your life.
—You’re feeling lost and alone, but then you have a conversation with someone who understands you. You feel a sense of connection and belonging.
— You’re praying for something, and then you see a sign that seems to be an answer to your prayer.
I’ve got some more thoughts on grace-filled moments:
— They can be fleeting or lasting. Some grace-filled moments may only last a few seconds, while others may stay with us for a lifetime.
— They don’t always make sense. Sometimes grace-filled moments happen during difficult circumstances. But even in these moments, we can find hope and meaning.
—They’re not always about us. Sometimes grace-filled moments are about the people around us. They can remind us of our interconnectedness and our shared humanity.
I’m finding that these Grace-Filled moments do happen unexpectedly and when I’m intentionally present in the moment attentive, mindfull, and delebrate as I traverse the wilderness of my everyday mess. Grace-filled moments are a gift. They’re a reminder of God’s love and presence in our lives. So be grateful for them and savor them whenever you find them. Gracefilled Moments was born out of My retired Sites Simply Coffee & Jesus ~And~ A Blessed Mess.
Please hang in here with me as I get put together; when I imported the material from the old sites to the new one, some of the post photos didn’t propagate, so I’ll add them in manually. Also, I have yet to decide on a theme, so I’ll be playing around with that too. And; I’ll be changing the look of my socials too.
