So we decided to build the altar, not for burnt offerings or sacrifices, but as a memorial. (Joshua 22:26-27)
Relate: I have a clock. I know it was purchased at Things Remembered because I bought the exact same clock for a friend on their wedding. When I was living in Binghamton that clock exactly fit the color of my bookshelves. That was because I bought the first bookshelf to exactly match that clock. I also have a photo whose frame matches the clock and those bookshelves. When I packed my bag and moved to Turkey, that clock and photo came with me. I had a very limited amount of space and weight and nearly everything I owned had to go but those two items were some of the only “luxury” items to be included. I could not part with them. They are both memorials.
