A few years ago, I started writing scripture, quotes, and song lyrics down on index cards then punched a whole in one corner and collected them on a key ring. I call it my "encouragement key-chain" and it goes everywhere I go. Some of the index cards have dirty fingerprints or tear stains and a few were written by others and given to me. It's well loved to the point that some are so torn or faded that I decided to look through it and re-copy the ones that were tattered.
