"Sometimes the days go by and our actions take on rote practices; we fall into patterns, and forget to tangibly connect to those who surround us. We need to reach out and unceasingly refresh our minds, souls, hearts, and bodies, opening ourselves fully to God, and be present for all those around us (Romans 12:2)."
