Something to Think About… Scrapbooking

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.
