- Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of February 26, 2006
As one of the on-going ministries of Chi Rho
Press, here is a selection from our book of daily
devotions, "Living as the Beloved: One Day at a
Time," by the Rev. Dr. Sandra Bochonok.
Please read the Scripture passage and Dr. Bochonok's
meditation. We hope you will be blessed.
Thank you for forwarding this to your friends.
A source of blessing and healing
"The God of peace be with you all. Amen."
"The palest ink is better than the best memory."
~ Chinese proverb
Journal expert Anne Broyles tells the story of a
young girl who breaks her leg and faces a summer
in bed. Her Grandma gives her a journal and tells
her this, "It's a journal . . . a special place for
you to put down all the special things you think or
see or dream, anytime you want. When you are in a
rotten mood and your brain is full of cobwebs, or
when life is so marvelous you feel like you're
soaring in a balloon, you can put it all down . . .
you can go through your own looking glass . . . all
kinds of things happen during the day, but sometimes
you don't notice them because you aren't paying
attention. Writing in your journal helps you see
things you never thought about before . . . soon
each day seems full of small marvels you must write
down" (Broyles, Anne. "Journaling. A Spirit Journey,"
When we keep a journal, we discover things about
ourselves. Journals can help us reach life-goals,
examine our feelings, and see personal growth or the
lack of it. Many people have found journal writing
rewarding and enriching. Try an experiment with God
and consider journal writing over the next few weeks.
See if it is rewarding for you and may the God of peace
be with you.
Your life has a story. A journal is a good place to
relive your story as a spiritual discipline. When we
record our words, it can be a source of healing and
blessing. Journal writing is one way to experience
God, our lives do have a story. Perhaps it is too
painful to share with others, but it can be safe to
share with you through a private journal. Give us
courage and strength to begin writing our stories.
Grace and peace,
Chi Rho Press
