verse 2 and other good stuff::

It's already time for the second verse of Beth Moore's Scripture Memory Challenge for 2011. How can January be half over already? I still am writing 2010 on things, how about you? I think I've got my first verse down pat {at least today} and this next one is perfect for me right now. It's something I really need to keep at the front of my mind these days. So, with that said, here is my second scripture that for 2011:
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4.19)

And here is Rebekah's second verse:
Understand this my dear brothers and sisters, you must be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry. (James 1.19)
look at that . . . we're both doing verse 19, but from different books and different chapters. It's so fun to have her doing this with me this year!

If you want to join us in memorizing 24 verses in 2011, that's great! You can "register" the fact that you are taking part in it on Beth's blog. That's where you can log your verses each month and just generally be encouraged by all the other people resolving to do something so beneficial along with you. Blessings on you!

Also, while I've got your attention, there's a couple other things I want to share. There are a million and one -- more actually -- things you could look at/read/watch online, but when I find one that's extra great, I like to share it. This week I came across two that I thought were exceptional:: First of all, this post really touched me this week and I think it's worth a read {Ann almost always touches me deeply. She articulates things so well and I look forward to her words each and every day. What an encouragement she is in my life . . . and knowing she's also a mother of 6 doesn't hurt either!} Finally, although I know 17 minutes of your time is a lot to sacrifice, this video is great, I think. I was glad I took the time to watch it. Although parenting is great and I wouldn't trade it for anything, this video validates the fact that it's not all laughter, smiles and hugs! {but what's with the guy being named Rufus? For real? That's a bit unfortunate, I'd say!}
