Journal failure

Filed under: Blogging, NOBTS — jodygambrell @ 9:38 am

Today, I’ve realized that my journal entries are very shallow. In class on Monday, Dr. Layton reminded us that we are supposed to have 65 journal entries for this semester. I realized at that point that I had failed at this journaling project.

Tonight, I was again reminded of my journaling shortcomings. On the way home from the Bama basketball game, I listened to David Platt’s sermon entitled, “Care Sacrificially”. In his message, he featured a woman from his faith family that had journaled her way through breast cancer. As I was listening to her read her journal entries, it was almost as if I was experiencing the cancer, the chemo, and her emotions with her.

At this point in the semester, I know I will not have my required 65 journal entries for the semester. I did, however, realize the importance of this journaling project. I pray that I can continue journaling/blogging even after this semester ends.
