Let's face it, we all have plenty of responsibilities in our daily lives that require our attention. Who needs one more thing? Right??? It is so very easy to get caught up in the mundane activities of life and totally miss the fact that we should enjoy the lives that we have been given.
I have found that documenting my life forces me to slow down, be "present' in each moment, and actually take the time to actually "SEE" the beauty that each day brings. It is so exciting to witness God's goodness & record those incredible moments in my family journal/album each week. It's even more motivating to know that my kids & generations to come will have a written legacy of my story to strengthen their faith.Total WIN~WIN!
Whether you are a seasoned Project Lifer, a pocket scrapbooking newbie, or you are still on the fence about the idea of putting your story on paper, I think it is IMPERATIVE that you fully take the time to consider your motivation ("the prize") for wanting to document your life in the first place. I would encourage you to write your motivation down on paper, journal it in your planner, or even post a sticky note in your workspace. Motivation for documenting 'my life' comes straight out of the Bible. It is a scripture found in a small book in the Old Testament entitled, Habakkuk. This scripture states:
And then God answered: "Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness pointing to what's coming.
It aches for the coming-
it can hardly wait! And it doesn't lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait. It's on its way.
It will come right on time.
(Habakkuk 2:2-3 The Message)
