Lisa notes...

I love how the Lord can do that--make whatever we're teaching/learning REAL in our everyday life. I'm glad that you're getting a lot out of Psalm 23.

My post is here:

I memorized Prov 18:10 about running to the tower. It's too risky to do anything less.

Here's mine.


I am currently preparing to speak at a ladies luncheon in a couple weeks. It's strange the way God takes you through things in the midst of the prep and as part of the prep.

My scripture is posted today...


I'm learning to seek the Lord for look upon Him...Psalm 121:1-2

Kathleen  Jaeger

I have been reminded that only God can take care of sin. So the delayed sanctification in my life -- no matter how much I want it to be gone, work for it to be gone, only God can take it away. Although I participate with Him and have a part. I cannot take away my sin -- only Jesus can do that. I know that in my head but it is a different thing when it comes to the parts of me working it out. I have had to deal with the sin of mine that affects my children and trust God to work in their lives. And continue in humble reliance upon Him. He is so good, and gracious and kind. I am thankful.

Also, I went to a homeschool conference this weekend and heard Andrew Pudewa speak on reading out aloud A LOT to our children and also memorization. It made me think of your blog here and your memory monday. He strongly encouraged memorizing Suzuki style where once you learn a poem (he was talking about poetry but I want to apply it to Scripture) you say it every day. Fascinating stuff. I really want to go back and re-learn all those AWANA verses that I had learned long ago. So pretty soon I may be connecting up here. Thanks for your insights.

Whew..this is long for a comment!
