WHAT???? The 20th verse???? You know what that means, don’t you? Those of you who have clocked in every single time so far have accumulated enough verses to qualify for the celebration! However! If you’ve gotten this far, you surely want to see it all the way to 24 and not just for the celebration but for the fortification and fruit of 2 dozen Scriptures in your darling head. Scripture memory has meant so much to me this year. Except for a full-on-crisis season of time when I promise you I would have lost my ever-loving mind without it, I have never sensed more of a harvest deep in my soul from the process. I so hope you can also testify that your year would have been altogether different without it.
I will get right to it because I am expecting a ton of family over to celebrate Amanda’s 32nd birthday and I have a Texas-size pot of chicken and dumplings to cook! Here’s mine:
Beth, Houston. But set Christ apart as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess. Yet do it with courtesy and respect, keeping a good conscience, so that those who slander your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame when they accuse you. 1 Peter 3:15-16 The NET Bible
Let’s hear it, Siestas! Hey, don’t be alarmed if it takes me a good while to moderate all the verses or even if it sits on zero for a little while. I’ll bring them in every couple of hours so I can still get the most out of a Saturday off. I hope you have some Sabbath time this weekend, too!
Talk to you very soon.
You’re a big deal around here.
