Stones of Remembrance by Gail Purath

When the Israelites miraculously crossed the Jordan River, they set up stones to remember and tell their children about God's faithfulness. 

"We will use these stones to build a memorial. In the future, your children will ask, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ Then you can tell them.” Joshua 4:6-7(NLT)
We can also "set up stones of remembrance” symbolizing times in our lives when God gave healing, perseverance, protection or encouragement—times when we were especially aware of God’s faithfulness. 

  • Make a quilt with squares symbolizing "faith events."
  • Create a display of items on a shelf as reminders.
  • Draw, paint, or craft a collage.
  • Decorate actual stones in your garden. 
  • Write your faith stories, tie them with a ribbon, and put them in a special box or bottle. (Then read them on special occasions.) 
I'd love to hear your creative ways to remember God's faithfulness--please leave them as a comment.
