For a while I was keeping a little pocket flip-top notebook in my purse. I’d jot down notes whenever they struck and try to title the page to make it more searcher-friendly. You know what I have now? Something bound to get lost before I type in my disorganized notes.
There’s not a perfect answer, but I’d welcome additional suggestions. I had a great thought for a Bible study session, but that notebook wasn’t handy: it was hidden. One thing worse than jotting down notes is watching your kiddos rip ’em apart before transferring them somewhere more permanent.
I really think permanent storage will come for me and my hints and scraps of ideas . . . when my youngest three are another year or two older. 🙂 But it can be frustrating. Disheartening.
But I’m glad we’ve got each other. You keep track of your notes. I’ll try to keep track of mine, and together more things will get written, thought, and applied. Disorganized notes are neither definitive nor the obstacle we sometimes interpret them to be. God still works and words are getting written every day.
Thanks be to God that He even grants us the little things of pencil, paper, and moments of insights, whether or not we’re organized or “on top of things”!
Happy writing! Or note taking! Or disorganized persisting! 🙂
