Hi Joanne! Just letting you know I've followed your blog for awhile now, and I really enjoy reading it each day :) I've just started to do Memory Monday, and I look forward to it each week! Hope you have a blessed day :)


Awesome schedule Joanne...may God give you the grace, strength and wisdom to complete it all safely and in His Power! Sweet wishes to your Emma that I missed wishing her big day "happy birthday"...beautiful fun photos!

Your verse from last week was a tough one but worth staying with...I was going to repeat doing mine in Romans 5:5 and add the previous verses because of the flow...but I
chose to move on. Have not yet decided but I think I've got my verse now just not at the time of posting: foggy brain.

Romanos 5:5 - y esta esperanza no nos defrauda porque Dios ha derramada su amor en nuestro corazón por el Espíritu Santo que nos ha dado


Mu Memory Monday is posted as "Failed with HOPE"


Well, I did pretty well for my first week! I only messed up punctuation and said overflows instead of runs over.

I am now going to work on the Roman Road - starting with Romans 3:23-24.

Good luck on a new semester! hope that your schedule works out being so close together!

Here's my post for the week:


I got mine up, finally! I still have one verse to tag on the end for next week (the one with the pigs and dogs, which is the whole reason I picked the passage).
I have to say I can't imagine going back to school with a MWF schedule. It's been a long time, but I don't relish ever having to do it again.
Thanks for your sweet words last week!


I forgot last week but got it this week.


Good things. And Congratulationson Emma's Bday and especially your Blog Award, will vote. You did great with the envelopes.

Thanks for answering my question, that was a special course. Now you're still going! Good job!

Got mine up this morning.

Well, I'm behind, but my post pretty much sums it's been a VERY hard week.

Blessings to everyone this week!


I am a newbie Memory Monday participant... I really needed the encouragement from other ladies so decided to join. Here is my post:
