It Was Just a Used Notebook

It was just a used notebook, but it was poignant in it's message.

I took these photos five years ago.  Today, I discovered them again on my computer. 

When I discovered them in a file on my computer, I instantly remembered taking them and how much I was moved by this empty notebook.

It was from the drawer of drawing and old school supplies for the kids.

This used up empty notebook was just so full.

Full of all that was accomplished.  Full of showing potential realized.

Full of a reminder to me to use up all I'm given for God's glory. 

This notebook represents the practice of life.  The negative space speaks so much more volume than if you could see everything that had been written on the torn away pages.

So much beauty of life is in the doing and the using.  


  1. It makes me think of fresh starts, forgetting the past, having sins wiped away and totally forgotten - and the pull of a mother's heartstrings when thinking about those pages torn out. Our children are with us for such a short time, writing and living their pages until one day we find ourselves sitting back and contemplating our lives, well-lived or not, thinking about things "written" that we may not have noticed as the days flew by. So - it's a big reminder to savor the blessing of each day, each fresh new page!

    Thanks dear Jill ♥ !!!
