I’ve read that the success of a blog depends upon how much the writer is willing to reveal about herself. Its also been said that what you post on your refrigerator door tells much about a person. So hang on, we’re going to take a brief look at mine.
Before we begin, I wonder if you’re aware that 80 percent of you have magnets on your refrigerator door. There are a few on mine, but most of our travel magnets are on the oven door of our R.V. Some of you use it as a bulletin board and a reminder of tasks that have to be done and appointments that must be met. I wonder if that’s where you post your favorite jokes or cartoons? I’m actually allowing you to see my refrigerator door in the accompanying photo. From the looks of it, I’m sure some of you will say that I am a messy person and if you looked at the interior of my closets, you’d know that I am. Now that’s rather revealing about me, isn’t it?
Until new family photos come in, I don’t update the material on my door very often. Then what I do take off is
placed in a box under my bed. You’ll notice that some of the photos have curled edges, they’ve been there for sometime. There’s one of my husband playing his accordion with a friend, and yet another of him, playing with our daughter. One photo serves as a reminder not to forget our friend, Glen, who has been bedridden for years, and is coping because of the prayers offered daily for him. My refrigerator serves as a prayer reminder for many.
Just one quick look at my door and it tells you that we have a big family that brings us much joy. The photos include our thirteen grandchildren
and our eighteen great-grandchildren. There’s one of Evy showing her crying-her-heart-out on the lap of Santa Clause, I think I would have done the same. Beth is pictured with baby chicks and looks so happy. Zach looks delighted while posing behind a perfectly baked turkey. You’ve got the idea. Most photos come in at Christmas time, when our families become very creative with their cards.
But, my husband sometimes posts photos that change the over-all scene somewhat. Such as the photo of the John Deere tractor that belonged to his dad. He finally sold it and the photo shows it completely rebuilt by the new owner
and looking like new. Being a steam buff, he’s posted a steam train photo there, also. And there’s the photo of cousin, Ken Updyke. Since his passing this year, it means so much, more to us. His wife, Arlene is in the photo, too, and it reminds us to keep the faith, like they did while serving over twenty years on the mission field in Ghana, Africa.
There are a few magnets holding the photos in place. The one from Paris, France, reminds me how fortunate we were to enjoy traveling in Europe. Another one reads: “This is the day the Lord has made: let us rejoice and be glad in it.”- Ps. 118:24 and one that says: “What This World Needs Is Jesus.” There are too many things on my refrigerator door for me to be very descriptive of each one. But you’ve seen and read enough that I think you can decide what it says about me. I’d also like to know what your refrigerator decor says about you. By the way, what’s inside says a lot about us, too 🙂
