When we married we received a gift from one of my friends. It was a box full of small magnets with words on them. We had the magnets on our refrigerator door the whole first year we were married and lived in Karis. I loved the messages friends and family left us when they visited.
I nearly finished binding a book back then, but started using it though I did not manage to get the covers on. I documented all the refrigerator poetry in my almost-done book.
I found the book a few days ago, going through our things in the garage, things we haven't taken in for use since we've moved to our house. I like looking through the book, remembering, being awestruck by the genius in the poetry, meditating on the words. Maybe we should put the words up on the refrigerator door again...
