About this Blog

I believe that every now and then something so spectacular happens, we remember it forever.

But most of the time life is experience recycled. Our moments may seem like no big deal until they are gone like vapor. Then one day we look back. We meet our past while standing in the aisle at the super market. We are reminded of a conversation while walking along the shore at dusk. A song takes us back to a time long forgotten.

What will we remember? How do we want to remember this event, this day, this season?

Be careful with your moments because they become your memories.

This blog spreads encouragement – support, graciousness, and a kind word. There is enough conflict in the world for which there is no solution. What you read here, you might disagree with and that’s OK. This is not the place to argue or debate. It is also a place of no political views, no bashing, no malice, no fighting. Derogatory comments will be unapproved and deleted.

Refining Grace lives up to the name.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word.
2 Thessalonians 2:16โ€ญ-โ€ฌ17 CSB

  1. Hello again!
    What an AWESOME theme you have here! The Word of God says to speak kindly and lovingly to one another – Ephesians 4:32ย Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other,ย just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ephesians+4%3A32&version=NASB Glory to God – keep doing more of what you’re doing! ๐Ÿ™‚
    God bless you.

  2. Jane, I’ve witnessed a bit of subtle bullying on LinkedIn once. It broke my heart since it was a group of “Christians” who forgot to include grace in their correspondence with an outsider. The outsider said he wasn’t ever coming back–I don’t blame him. I probably ticked off the insiders by clicking ‘like’ on one of his comments.

  3. I joined WordPress because I wanted to leave a comment.
    I love your title:
    “Talk Kindness to Me.”

    This year I plan on not arguing.
    I will let God fight my battles.
    I will walk away from impolite people.
    God bless you & those that surround you.

    • Aw, Daniel, I am touched. Thank you for leaving a comment. And I believe you will succeed at your plan. When I started my blog, it was because bullying was causing so much pain and I wanted to write only things that would bring comfort to people and let them know that not everyone has meanness in them and has no filter when they express it. You will never regret being kind. At least that’s how I feel. Treat yourself to joy every day. There is something good about every day but sometimes we have to work a little harder to find it.

  4. The anonymity of the internet does seem to draw out the worst in some people–including people who’d be appalled if they were treated badly themselves. Odd. I hope stating your purpose creates a small hate-free space.

    • Thank you, Ellen. I have had very few bullies comment on my writing. A few, but I just pray for them. My motto is treat yourself to joy every day. There isn’t much time to focus on people who don’t appreciate me. Have an awesome day!
