We all have them. Memories. Some good, some bad, some indifferent.
I browsed through some old pictures today and my mind flooded with memories of my childhood, trips, appearance and weight fluctuations, my family and ministry – As I looked at each photo my mind immediately would make judgment calls on the picture….was it a positive reminder or a painful memory? Some pictures would cause me to pause with a tear in my eye while others would stir up a quick sense of frustration.
The definition of memory is this:
1. The faculty by which the mind stores and remembers information.
2. Something remembered from the past; a recollection.
I had a gentle reminder today to focus on the “positives” of my past, the good reports of yesterday, the memories that I can hold onto with great appreciation.
Take time to view/value your life’s photo’s of joy and blessing!
