Isn't this a great idea! I've seen variations of it all over Pinterest. The idea is to add a note, a little scribble, a picture, ticket stub, receipt, etc, to the jar each day. Or every other day, or once a week. Whatever works for you. Whatever gets you in the habit of thinking about your day, or your week, or your life. The goal being to find something to be grateful for, something special, something convicting, something that blesses your heart. Then when the year is over you get to look through the things in the jar, and see what the past year has been like. Hopefully what's in that jar will bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart.
Here's the jar I'll be using...it's a 1/2 gallon, vintage Blue Ball jar, with a zinc lid.
I've had it a long time and I'm delighted to find a good use for it.
I have squares of note paper ready for memories, words of praise and thanksgiving, quotes of inspiration, & cute sayings from the little ones in my life. Plus I'll add mementos from the special moments that 2014 is sure to hold. Now, I'm not wishing this year away....but I am excited to see what this jar holds at the end of it!!
"Great is his faithfulness; his loving-kindness begins afresh each day."
