Holding Fast and Pressing On through Memorials
I believe remembering God's hand in my life is very important. There are many things people use as memorials, objects, ceremonies, journals; I chose to use pictures. I am a scrap-booker and I come from a line of scrap-bookers. My mom and grandmother have albums from years ago that document the journey of our family. I have taken that form of remembering one step further and I have created scrap-books for each of my children telling them of what God has done in their lives. I have created one using the names of God. I collected pictures and scripture that reminded me of each aspect of God's character and I created a book I can go back to when I am discouraged. One of the ways we overcome discouragement is by remembering the good things God has done in our lives.
I hope today you do something to create a memorial that reminds you of the mighty hand of God in your life and that you share it with your children.
