We went and saw our friend at Staples the other day to get a whole stack of verse cards laminated. I've not been laminating mine (they have a safe place to live without getting beat up), but the girls get theirs done. That way they'll last. And wouldn't it be cool if they still had their stack someday when they're all grown up?
(Okay, technically the boy at Staples doesn't know he's our friend but it's always the same guy and I kind of wonder what he thinks of our verse cards. I figure that maybe he'll ask one of these visits.)
This week we're adding more verses to Psalm 19; we got 1-4 down pretty well last week especially considering we didn't do school on Monday.
One thing we need to work on is reviewing past verses we've learned to keep them fresh. I do that on my own, but it's time for the girls to do it too, for us to do it together.
Which reminds me of Sunday school yesterday. Our virtue this month is cooperation and our memory verse is Ecclesiastes 4:9. "Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do."
In everything they do.
Memorizing Scripture, cleaning house, making decisions, homework, you name it. Everything. That was a little bit eye-opening for me. Because I'm not so good at asking for help and tend to pride myself on being self-sufficient. God's really been working on that with me and I'll go ahead and tell you it's not much fun. But necessary.
Are you memorizing anything this week? If not, why not? Please don't take that as criticism, but as an honest question. What's holding you back from being disciplined about memorization?
