During lunch the other day a friend was asking me some questions about my life, salvation, and so forth. Today, I was thinking about our conversation and thought it would be nice to put some of my life stories on paper in a concise and short format.
I enjoy journaling and have been doing it for a while. The reward of writing is restorative to my soul. My thoughts on doing “life stories” are…
- I journal anyway.
- Been doing it since ’94 so it’s a habit.
- It will be of interest to my children at some point.
- I wish my daddy did this. I’d love to read the stories.
When it began
In ’94 I was at a family reunion and one of the patriarchs was reading an excerpt from a great, great, great Civil War soldier. It was a journal entry. I was amazed as I listened to the excerpt. That is when it occurred to me how I wish I had something like that from my dad.
My next thought was that I could do this for my kids. So I began.
So I think I will give a cyber journal a whirl.
