The Joy of the Journal

My husband built me a “book nook” out of the closet in my office. Today, I am sorting and arranging all my boxes of treasured books. I decided to display my lifetime of journals I had packed away. I counted 50 prayer journals.

I started the practice of journaling regularly in 1993 when I was a first year student at the University of Virginia. I recorded prayers, insights, Bible verses, and anything I was learning. I’m so glad I did. I love looking back on my life as an 18 year old decades later. I now have a record of God’s faithfulness in my life to remember always.

It’s never too late to start a journal.
