Have you ever taken the time to look back on the significant moments in your life….. the ones that seemed so ordinary at the time, but in reality turned out to be life changing?
That is what Jill Kelly has done in her book Etched…. Upon my Heart. Longing to share the hopes and highlights and struggles of her journey to find the Lord and by His side afterward with her girls; she wrote this book. She has taken those moments in time and with a transparency that is uncommon these days she shares them with her readers.
A she walks you thorough the learning moments in your life you become reflective with her. You begin to draw on your own memories and see where you too have learned; you begin to see the moment of learning that are etched on your own heart.
As I have read this book I have been challenged to look back upon the things I have done when I was not following Christ as gifts. They have been important in my journey to who I am today, and who I am in the process of becoming. Each of these moments and what i have learned from them are my legacy to my children. Yes, even the moments that were bad.
If you are like me, prone to beat yourself up mentally for your past. I recommend that you read this book. It is a sweet salve to the scars helping you allow Christ to redeem them for good.
