I so want to be a doer of the Word!


Ahhhhhh, Joanne, I hit reject instead of publish. Sorry, I don't hate you, I just can't read!!!!


Mornin' Girls!

Sorry to have missed you all for a few weeks. This is a great verse you have to share this week. I look forward to playing catch up on all you girls blogs today!

Being Blessed By Him w/ You,

Back at it after missing last week!

Memorizing scripture has already been a comfot to me! Thanks for hosting this, it was the push I needed to actually start doing it. I will be forever grateful to you!

Have a great Monday!


What are the odds of your verses for next week being my verses for this week? HA! Nice to know we're on the same wave length. When are our books coming? I'm on pins and needles!! Happy Monday!


I'm joining in! I found your site last week. I was blurfing (have no clue where I was when I found your site) and loved the idea so much of Memory Monday that I set my sights on doing it myself. Thanks for the nudge to get me started.~G (Gina aka CraftTeaLady)

Amen! I had a co-worker once who was asking about why God answered some prayers and didn't answer others. I wish I had some incredible verse hidden in my hear then. All I could come up with was, "God is not a vending machine. You don't put in the prayer and push a button and get the answer you want". Pretty simple, but a verse inspired by God would have been much better. Though, she still quotes it, funny enough.

I almost missed Memory Monday...I just joined in last Monday! Here's my link:


I finally got mine done! It's been a busy day. Here's the link:
I'm going to polish it up for next week, and I'm issuing my kids a challenge too. We'll see how popular I am tomorrow morning! :)
Loved all your red in your post earlier this week. Also, even though you've shared before, your transparency is a blessing and helps me to remember that we're all just human...wives, mothers, children of the King...and without Jesus, nothing is possible.
Blessings for a splendid week!

Oh, and I loved what you said about your verse this week. Just forgot to say it when I got so wordy a minute ago.


Hi all~ This is my first time joining in. I love memorizing Bible verses!
