I'm joining in...

"Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to you children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the Lord swore to give your forefathers..." Det. 11:18:21

Thank you for these thoughts! The Lord is good!


Hi, Joanne,

I'm finally back and have finished up Psalm 1:1-6. It's up here:

Have a safe day driving in the snow!


Blessings post is up...
I've officially joined and memorized my 2 week's worth...2 Corinthians 2:14-15 or in my case 2 Corintios 2:14 for today and I had done 2 Corintios 2:15 the first week.

Love your thoughts on Psalm 89.

Be careful in the snow!May we walk in His light!

I noticed I did not link your button but I do have a link in there. I'll try to fix it...but for some reason, my blogger is not opening and running slowly. This is how we link, right?

Mine is this:

Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus to the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy." Philippians 1:1-4 (I just added two to last weeks).

Love you! Drive Safely, friend!

I have my verse posted for this week.

Have a wonderful week!


Happy Monday everyone! This is so motivating...I think if I didn't know that ya'll were holding me accountable I would have not even tried this week. It was a rotten week! Thanks for your prayers!

Lora @ By the Lamp Light

I have my post up and memory cards available to anyone who would like them - a secretary found 8 sets in a file folder!


Here's this week extended journey. I hope your back is feeling better & that sitting in class isn't making it worse!

Here's the link to my verse

I'll be praying for you and your back this week!

OH MY! I forgot to put my comment in this morning! Well, I hope that everyone has had a good day. Joanne...hope school is still going well! Happy Memorizing this week to all!!



Hi! I haven't commented in the longest time! I thought I should pop in and say hi. Prayers for your back. There's not much worse than a bad bach huh?

I've loved reading about your experiences at school. Good luck with it all!

Good morning Joanne! And I do have a set of cards for you! Just let me know your e-mail address and then I'll get your mailing address. They are packaged (thanks to my youngest teen) and ready to go!
Blessings to you!
