M emory triggers transport us back in time: an old song, a familiar voice on the phone, going home, driving by a hometown school, revisiting a church attended in our youth. These are only a few moving memory motivators that are likely to return us to nostalgic days of yesteryear.
The Psalmist declared that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) and our ability to remember may be one of the clearest evidences of the accuracy of his conclusion. Memory provides an ever growing mental file of information that leads to inventions and technological breakthroughs that keep astounding each succeeding generation. It is also the fountain from which family and national history flows, causing us to relive pleasant times with loved ones, the feelings of sadness over those who gave their lives in the cause of freedom and the joyous news of battles ending so military heroes can come home in victory and peace.
