Memoranda, Moleskins & Moments

Camera and Journal - always handy (My son will be so proud to see my tiny "Moleskin" journal!)

While with our family in Wisconsin over Thanksgiving, during one of my early morning quiet times, I was meditating on scripture and taking time to be quiet. And I remember having some kind of “insight” or “encouragement” that God brought to my mind. But I didn’t write it down and now I don’t remember.

This led me think of one of my favorite quotes from Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.  The King is referencing a frightening experience he has just had when he says:

“The horror of that moment,” the King went on, “I shall never, NEVER forget!’ “You will, though,” the Queen said, “if you don’t make a memorandum of it.”  (italics mine!)

I forgot to make a “memorandum” of my special moment with God and now I can’t remember it . . . kind of hard to  celebrate it by sharing it with you when I can’t remember.

So what does the purse have to do with this?  Well, there is a “Moleskin make-my son-proud” journal that fits into my purse.  And that’s my little camera in the side pocket there; A photo helps me remember too.   While I journal most days, I also carry a small journal for those God-Moments when I am in the muchness of life.  That’s what “Remember & Celebrate” is all about.

How do you record your God Moments? Maybe it’s as simple as noting something on your calendar. I’d like to hear about it.
