And in Godliness, love of brotherhood; and in love of brotherhood, charity.
This image is from a page of my journal (pay no attention to the missing words). Not many people get to look inside of it. As a matter of fact, my daughter is the only person to ever see inside. My husband used to try but now just goes about his day. In the beginning, he didn’t understand why it was important but he gets it now. No secrets. No tales of grand adventures while he’s away.
Since young childhood I have written or drawn when stressed or upset. During tragic times my mother made sure I had a new notebook and a pencil. I didn’t understand that until I was older. Now when I need to unwind or relax I write scriptures to ease my mind. It helps more than anything else (except a hug my kiddo).
There are not just scriptures in my journal. You’ll see my anniversary date in Roman numerals underneath a line from the song my husband and I danced to at our wedding almost 16 year ago. Or a quote from Winnie the Pooh, Vincent van Gogh, and even Johnny Depp. But the scriptures are what really does the trick.
