For many, many years I have journaled. For the past several years I have used one kind of journal - shown here and purchased for $9.95 at Barnes and Nobles. I write on the right hand pages to the end of the book, then turn it over and write on the right hand pages again! I get close to a whole year in one journal. I write early in the morning and record the events of the previous day. Then I make notes on the Scripture I am reading for that day and write out my prayers. I record progress in weight or projects I am working on. Everyday I list 5 things for which I am thankful. Sometimes I sketch or doodle; sometimes I attach a flat souvenir with scotch tape. Special pages at the beginning of the book are used to list books I read, quotes that "grab" me, and highlights of my life are indexed by date and with a brief summary. Besides reading God's Word and praying, this is the one activity from which I profit most.
