I've got my post up, but my blog is down temporarily. Hope it is back up sometime today. I have someone redesigning my ministry site and blog. I'll let you know when my blog is up.

I look forward to reading yours and everyone else's posts today.

Take care,




Got mine up on the right day this time.. I've been behind this summer. Doing this helps in so many ways, but especially in parenting two toddlers. Great reminder about focus... the 'daily' junk is easy to cling to, but God is faithful and GOOD.

Have a great week!


2 Timothy 3:16-17
All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be throughly equipped for every good work.
It's our first week...My kids also memorized the same week we'll do Titus 3:1 together since it goes with the Bible Study we are doing together


My blog is up and running now. Yay! My Memory Monday post is also up.

Take care,


"Let the words of my mouth & the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, Oh Lord, my Rock & my Redeemer." Psalm 19:14

Only stumbled once on this! I'll post on my blog a link later. Worked on this this morning 5:30 a.m.! Thanks for the encouragment- LOVE Psalm 103, seems to make everything fall into place, real perspective- blessings to you-today-Laura


Been in & out of Memory Monday for a bit, but have been trying to keep up with reviewing the verses I have already memorized.
New for this week:
Thanks for hosting this, Joanne; it's made a difference in my life to have accountability in my life.

Lisa notes...

Yes, a little accountability does go a long way. Thank YOU for your encouragement for us to do this!

My post is here:


Hello! Here's mine...yeah, I'm back on the MM wagon again! It's been too long!


While me and the kids were on vacation at my parents house I "escaped" and spent more time on the computer. I used some of that time to change the look of my blog and also to set up my new Bible Study blog. Unfortunately I was not doing a whole lot of memorizing - however, I did enjoy being home watching my parents spoil my kids! That time with them is truly a blessing!!!

Here is the link to my Memory Monday post...


It's been awhile for me, and it has been something I've missed doing. I've posted the one I will be working on for next week.
