My journals are reflections of my thoughts that have stood out in my mind. There is no rule for writing down your most cherished moments or your deepest concerns. I get so excited when I pull out a journal from years back and began to read. These pages are so dear because I can see a glimpse of the past and yet my heart is filled when I see prayers that have been answered. Sometimes there are particular words that just make me laugh.
Just tonight, I read a page from one of my 2004 journals. I am so thankful that I took the time to write. Sam and I had gone on a business trip and took some time to go visit my parents who were living in Brady. This was written about four months before my mother passed away. MY JOURNAL READS:
Thank you God for a safe return. Thank you for the opportunity that we have had to see my parents. We had a wonderful time even though I was scared out of my wits. My thoughts raced about all the things that I am terrified of like snakes, scorpions, and all the other horrifying things out there in that forsaken country. Not my cup of tea! Did I sleep? NO! I even needed night vision glasses. I certainly do appreciate our peaceful part of the country. This special time with my parents has made me realize even more of how Blessed I am. Thank you God for allowing me to share quality time with my mother (my very dearest friend). Her qualities go way beyond what I could ever dream of. She is the BEST! How sweet are her ways and her smile is beautiful...
Again God, Thank you for this special time.
Thank you also for a great husband that loves me and takes care of me. I pray your Blessings upon our family. Protect my mother, dad and Tammy.. Protect the family that we love so much.
You are great Lord and I love you..
I would not take anything for this journal. I would encourage everyone to take just a few minutes a day to write down the precious moments of life...
