Let's Memorize Scripture Together

On my blog loafing that I have done this week I ran across a site, and I don't know which one it was, a lady put out a challenge to her follow bloggers to memorize scripture together and it has been on my mind every since. I thought it was the neatest idea and I think that we can do it together.

This is how it works, you pick out your scripture and memorize it and on the 1st and 15 day of the month let's all post our memorized scriptures and see how many we have posted. I know that we don't have but 4-5 in our blogging ring now, but it can and will grow. So any of you up for the challenge. I have my scripture picked out and it is in the Old Testament and it is two verses, and I have started on memorizing it today. Pick any verse or verses that you do not already have memorized. So what do you say ladies?

As I have been working on my Bible Study this week on "Resting in HIM, Women of Faith Bible Studies", I have been learning about why we need to take some time every week and get some rest, and that God worked six days and rested on the seventh. One of the things that I have learned that the day of rest, Sunday for many of us is really a gift from God. I don't think that I have ever thought about Sunday in that way before, as a gift from God. But, the more I think about it the more I like that idea. God has told us to take one day a week to stop our work, labors, or whatever we are doing and pay attention to HIM. Stop and forget all that needs to get done, all that could be done and think on ONLY HIM. How refreshing could the day be if we would only do that. I think I will wake up Sunday morning with a bit of a different attitude. How about you?

Well as you can see my blog has a little bit of a different look. I was messing around late last night on the blog and deleted some things that should have not be deleted and my page was all messed up. Then, I could not get back on the website where I got my template for the background. Oh well, this one will have to do for know.

Until We Meet Again
Oh, I meant to tell you all that I went and joined the local gym today to try really hard to lose weight and get healthier this year. I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes.WHEW!!! I am planning on going again in the morning. I filled out all my paperwork and was going to pay and join for 3 months because that was best deal and the nice lady told me oh there is no charge for your insurance pays the complete, yes I said the COMPLETE monthly fee. Boy was I surprised and thankful.

I'm up for it. I need to memorize more anyway. I think that might bring my "brain age" down a little from 66.
