Putting Life in Perspective…and writing stories

29 brief memories

From ohgizmo

The below is a list of memories as they came to mind from the earliest to the latest. I asked myself to remember these because of this week’s challenge. So…Do you remember back in the day?

  1. Yes, I remember when I had my first fight. I had the wind knocked out of me.
  2. I remember when I got caught stealing. The shame and keen sense of sin I felt.
  3. I remember how I got that deep scar on my leg. Darn you gravity.
  4. I remember my first day in high school where I was picked on by the senior students. I was forced to ride a model motor bike and make noises.
  5. I remember attending Youth Group for the first time. I have so many fond memories of that place.
  6. I remember being mugged at gunpoint on the way to a friend’s place.
  7. I remember meeting HER for the first time. I had no idea what the future held.
  8. I remember slowly becoming more and more convinced about my need for Christ.
  9. I remember failing speeches because I was just too scared to speak in public. True story, more than once.
  10. I remember realizing that the Lord was calling me into His service.
  11. I remember breaking up. My fault. I was sad.
  12. I remember getting back together. I was happy.
  13. I remember being mugged. AGAIN!
  14. I remember preaching my first sermon. I was scared, but passionate.
  15. I remember the church split. That was painful.
  16. I remember finally moving churches. That was worse.
  17. I remember the night my sister died. That was the worst.
  18. I remember breaking up…again.
  19. I remember when I started working.
  20. I remember asking HER dad if I could marry HER. My heart raced.
  21. I remember HER taking me back and saying YES! That made me happy.
  22. I remember scratching two new cars at work. That made me worry.
  23. I remember how they told me not to worry about it.
  24. I remember my wedding day. She was (and still is) beautiful.
  25. I remember when the builder ran away with our money. Gah!
  26. I remember finally moving into our own place. Freedom!
  27. I remember the stress filled days at work. It was bad. Seriously.
  28. I remember almost leaving the company but then the other job position was taken.
  29. I remember the day my current boss asked me to move to his department. Great opportunity.

I remember back in the day. The good and the bad, God used all these things above to make me the person I am today. He isn’t done with me, he is still using events to transform me for a purpose (Romans 8:28-39). I look forward to making more memories.
