Memorizing

Man it sure feels like Friday to me today. That kinda stinks since its not! The good thing is that I dont have to be at work until 8 tomorrow. Yay, an extra half hour! What will I do with my time? Today I started my new verse. Remember I am memorizing with Beth Moore. Oooooh lucky me! I am so excited about memorizing. I have done it before but in the past it has been with a book and it felt more like something I had to check off a list of things to do. This time I get to pick out the verse I choose to memorize. If you want to hop in and join me, go ahead. Oh yea, if you go to the LPM Blog (Beth Moore's), you can check the comments for today's post. That's where all the scriptures are posted that everyone picked. Tons of people are doing this with Beth and I (LOL). There is some GOOD WORD there, let me tell you! So anyway, here is my scripture for this time.

Micah 7: 7 & 8
But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. Rejoice not over me, O my enemy, when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me.

Man, that is POWERFUL! Well if you want to jump in there and memorize with us, go ahead. If you live near me and want to join a Beth Moore Bible Study, e mail me and let me know that too. We are starting one in a couple of weeks. (No I don't stalk Beth Moore.) LOL But she is a pretty powerful teacher.
One more thing - Please pray for my nephew. His name is John. He is raising two little girls ages 1 and 2 by himself. The night before last their home burned to the ground. They lost everything but the clothes they were wearing. Thankfully he got the girls out of the house. Everything however is gone now and they must start over. This is a very stressful situation for him. Please lift him up during this time. Thanks so much.

Ok so you pray really hard I'll sell my house and then we can do Beth Moore at my NEW house! (IN VILOU!)

Sorry you think its Friday b/c its really going to stink when you wake up tomorrow and have to go to work!

And about the guy I wrote about - you'd have to know the guy - if he does think I'm a heathen and a psycho, still no loss. lol.

Thank the Lord your nephew and his girls are okay!! I am just so burdened by all that is happening to so many people lately! I JUST got done reading a blog right now of a family of 8 that lost their home to a fire on Tuesday (I believe). So horrible! I pray he is able to get help with all the things he will need to rebuild his life with those little girls!!

Oh! And I am doing the Scripture memorization too- such a useful tool! I learned Psalm 139 last month and I am so happy to be learning more this year. :) I never thought I could do it! lol
