Have you seen the Pinterest projects where people take a jar and fill it with memories or blessings throughout the year?
Well, Barb Adams wants to do that on a larger scale — on a community scale — so she’s started a Facebook page that’s dedicated to collecting those notes of hope.
“The mission of the JAR PROJECT page is to encourage all of us to focus on the positive occurrences in our lives that we might otherwise let slip through our consciousness,” she writes. “The JAR PROJECT is dedicated to helping us bathe in the light rather than becoming bogged down in the darkness.”
Won’t you visit today and add your own note? Or perhaps pull a jar out of the recycling bin and start this tradition at home?
Today’s journal page was designed by Elisa Pompili, who grew up in Spencerport, NY spending most of her time with her big Italian family and a few close friends. Elisa works as a school counselor and loves big and small adventures, chocolate, and traveling. She wrote and finished her debut novel, “Making Room,” long before she ever knew she would live in North Carolina, where she currently resides with her husband Greg and their cat Sheldon. You can read more about her at her blog.

Thank you, all of you, for joining us for the 40 Days of Hope project. Each day during Lent, we’ll share something about hope here — something that we pray inspires you or encourages you. We’re also planning to share free journal pages for you to download. We don’t quite have 40 yet, so if you’d like more information on submitting one, please click here.
