Here it is what you've been waiting on! Memorial Box Monday!
My bloggy friend Linny over at A place called Simplicty came up with this idea to collect a box and add things into when God blesses you. That way when you are in a valley you will have something to remember all the wonderful things God has done in your life. She explains it perfectly here.
So I have not went out and officially gotten a Memorial Box yet. I am still looking for the right one. As I fill that one up I will go find another "right one" You have to admit we are forgetful people so we need to be reminded of the wonderful things He does for us.So I thought of what the very first thing I would put in my box. Remember these things should be somewhat small so that they will fit in a box. The Box can be any design you choose or any size you want. I am thinking of those really cool wooden boxes you find at a craft store. I think those would work wonderful.
I think the first thing I would put into our box would have to be a set of headphones a small little set that maybe goes to an ipod or something. The day God told me to adopt from China I was listening to Dr. Dobson on Focus on The Family when I heard Him speak to me. I was wearing a set of headphones listening to the radio. When I popped them off there was no one around. So I will put the headphones inside my Memorial box. As I go through each Monday I am sure there will be other things I will think to add from the past but for now this is what I will add.
You can start your own Memorial Box Monday as well. Read Linny's link and grab her pic to add to your blog and just share with everyone. Every Monday on her page she has Memorial Box Monday and we all can share our stories there, as well as on your own blog. SO welcome to Memorial Box Monday!!
Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you to give you hope and a future.
