I don't remember the exact year I started journaling. It started mostly as a way to jot down thoughts and prayers. As time went on, the pages began to be filled with more than just random thoughts but deep and passionate love notes to God. As I look through the last 5-7 years of journals, I see how God's hand was like a tapestry, weaving me through the path HE has for me...I have pages filled with some dark days but mostly just prayers filled with scripture, thoughts on the future, Bible studies that I've done, little scribbles from my kids when they were little, notes from church...little drawings etc. It's fun to look back and read how far God has brough me and my family!
