Writer's Block: Forget me not

What is your earliest vivid memory? Why do you think this memory stands out so much in your mind?



My earliest vivid memories revolve around playing with a group of neighborhood kids when I was three years old.
Somehow, I fell and broke my arm.

I have a precise recollection of where I was, who I was with, and how I fell, but here’s the strange thing…

My older sister was there with me. She tells a whole different story of how it happened.

Memory is an odd thing. It is selective. Some things we remember, some things we forget.

God has selective memory, too. For those who belong to Him He makes this promise…

“I will remember your sins no more.” Isaiah 43:25

Thank God for selective memory!

I want to hear the details. I don't think I've heard the story before.

That picure is called "At Play" by Dorothy Tennant.

If you had to identify yourself with one of the children in the picture, which one would you pick?

I'd be the blonde one sitting on the edge to the far right.

I was thinking I'd be her because she looks thoughtful, kind of back in the shadows and reflective.

I'd be one of the kids hanging upside down. I always did that when I was a kid. I also played on the rings (like this http://bit.ly/bJS9kv )I could do all kinds of fancy twirls and always had hands full of blisters and calluses! Can you imagine that??

I thought you might be one of the exuberant ones if I had to guess.
