"Memories - Pressed Between the Pages of My Mind": This line of an Elvis Presley song came flooding in my mind today as I rushed back to the hotel to try to jump into the pool for a few laps before dinner.
Memories… of family vacations when I could not wait to arrive so I could get into the hotel swimming pool. That was all I wanted to do – to play in the water. Mom was always watching and Dad would join me as soon as he got off work.
Memories – of sitting on the beaches of Gulf Shores listening to the sounds of the waves and knowing God was with me.
Memories – of a friend who gifted me with a stay in a Nairobi 5 star Hotel. In all my years of staying in Africa, I never stayed in a 5 star hotel with a swimming pool, until this gift. It was so much fun swimming. I felt so much at peace with God and the world
The music and memories from a time I dearly cherish. The people left fingerprints on my life and changed me forever.
These memories remind me that every day, I am making new memories that somehow God will keep pressed between the pages of my mind--- until just the right time. I wonder why I remember them today?
May God give us beautiful memories.
