a couple days ago i found a large box filled with tons of journals of mine in our basement. i had stored them all away before i got married and i haven’t really touched them for years. i started reading through some of them… there were some dated back when i was 13 or 14 years old. there were entries i had written when i was in holland, some when i was in malaysia, others when i was in germany.
i kept reading and found prayers and writings for my future husband from when i was fifteen. the journals were filled with things i was learning, prayers, verses, quotes, pictures… so many memories! i look back on everything i had written, and i am so glad i have kept a journal all these years. hopefully one day i will be able to show my kids what i had been up to when i was their age. some of the things i just laugh at, writing about a certain guy i liked or about how much i hated high school. ha!
i don’t journal as much anymore but i still love to. there is something sweet about sitting down with a pen and paper and writing out your thoughts. sure, a blog is awesome (and you can even get it printed into a book nowadays) but sitting down with a cup of coffee, a bible, and a blank page is beautiful.
hope you are having a lovely monday, dear friends.
