“Cause they’re just pictures hangin’ side by side. Forgotten memories from another time. Just the places that I’ve been before, couple magnets, recipes, and Polaroids. Yeah, but that’s my life on the frigerator door.” – from the song Refrigerator Door by Luke Combs
I enjoy many kinds of music. My Spotify queue is filled with rock, pop, rap, R&B, classical, Christian and other types of music. My favorite music is country music. I prefer older country (Cash, Jones, Whitley, and Jennings are some of my favorites.) but have found myself also enjoying the music of Luke Combs who is a fairly new country artist. I like his songs that tend to touch on relationships in life.
One of his most popular songs is Refrigerator Door. This song talks about pictures and other items that are hung upon refrigerator doors. Pictures that walk us through our past. Notes, postcards and other items that remind us of events we enjoyed, concerts we liked and other memories that make us smile. Each refrigerator door is different because each life is different. The items that hang upon your refrigerator help tell your story through the memories that are represented there. The items on my refrigerator help tell my story. We all have different memories and times that we cherish because our lives are unique gifts given to us by God to enjoy upon this earth.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17) These memories that we enjoy, and savor are blessings given to us by God. They are gifts that we can repeatedly unwrap anytime we remember sweet memories from our life and the blessings they are to us.
This time of unknown that we are experiencing has forced many of us to slow down to some degree. It’s given us time to stop and reflect upon our lives and what we have experienced. I hope during this season, you have been blessed by sweet memories that have brought a smile to your face. These memories may or may not be associated with your refrigerator door, but I hope they have brought you comfort and happiness. They are a gift God has given to you as you remember those people and events in your life that have brought you joy. God has been good to each of us and the memories we enjoy remind us of His goodness and faithfulness to us.
This has been a tough season for all of us. But I hope you have been able to remember God’s goodness and kindness to us. I hope you have been able to reflect upon those moments in your life where God has been present. We could cover our refrigerator doors with moments and memories where God has been good to us and where His blessings have been more than abundant. He is the good, good Father.
Cherish these memories of God’s goodness to you. I hope that as you look at your refrigerator door that you are reminded of the joy and love God has brought you. He is so good to us. Thank God for your refrigerator door blessings!
