Numbers 15:38-40

"Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the Lord, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God."
Numbers 15:38-40

I like this... God cares about us so much. He's always giving us things to help us remember.  It seems ironic in a way, because the whole challenge of this life is that we *don't* remember our past selves.  We can't remember the premortal existence, or anything that came before... so, we read, we pray, we listen... and we try to remember what we're taught.  I think that anything that helps us remember is helpful.  Pictures, scripture quotes... fringes. :)  Whatever it is, it is a reminder of God, and keeping him in our minds and in our hearts all the time is the goal. ... Let's surround ourselves with reminders, and not forget the ones that already surround us... the sunrise... the trees... there are so many things that point directly to God, if we stop and consider them.  Today, let's remember.
