I think scrapbooking is great. I think it’s a terrific way to preserve memories and write your family’s story book. Notice, I said write. Without journaling, or writing about what was going on, or your thoughts, or at least the who what where when why and how, they’re just pictures in a book. Now don’t get me wrong, the pictures are wonderful reminders of the good times you’ve had. They are wonderful snapshots of your life. I just don’t think they’re enough. I think that’s why we started scrapbooking to begin with, at least it was one of the reasons I started.
In addition to the things above, I love to add scriptures from the Bible to my pages whenever I can find something that fits. I think it reminds us and those who will read it in our future of our dedication to God’s Word. Who knows? Perhaps a child or grandchild will see the scriptures and be drawn to the Word and the Lord by reading what we’ve written.
I encourage you to write scriptures, captions, and notes to your family in your own handwriting. No, you may not think your writing is pretty; but, let me tell you. My mother died several years ago, and anything that has her handwriting on it is absolutely precious to me. I don’t have much. I want to make sure that my children have written reminders of my love for their father, our family, our Lord, and for each of them.
Just Something to Think About….
