Written Reminders

I wrote this about a year ago..it's just an excerpt from a journal I kept, documenting my year at school, and the things God was teaching me. Flipping though the pages, I found memories tucked away in the form of movie ticket stubs, a program from a fashion show I was in, notes from friends and grocery lists along with scripture verses, lessons from God and funny things that happened along the way. Taking time to remember all that I've learned just in the past year was so intriguing and encouraging. It inspired me to be open and ready for new experiences and lessons ahead. 

How about you? Do you keep a journal?

Happy Thursday!

P.S. Have you entered the giveaway yet? :)

I keep a journal too. My journal is not your ordinary type of journal, mine is like a letter book which I address to God. I try to write to Him on a day to day basis.

I also keep a journal, the best part for me is always going back to what I have already written and looking at how much I have grown.
Sometimes I can read something I wrote a year ago and remember so clearly what I was feeling at the time I was writing it, makes me happy :)

& no. unfortunately I'm the worst at keeping journals-- I guess the blog is somewhat of one, but not too personal/deep ya know? That's it.. you've motivated me to write in mine this week!

Yes! a Journal, or Prayer notebook rather. I've started using it for my lectio divina as well.

Great reflection Candice!

Thank you ladies! I'm so glad to hear that most of you do write in them :) A lovely way to document life!

I do, but I haven't written in a long time. It's a mixture of ending one journal and just being too busy and tired to start the next. I'm hoping to take some time this weekend to start up again - I really miss it!
