Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 13!

Hey, You Scripture Memorizing Siestas!

Can you believe it’s already July 1st? FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! Where has the summer gone? Well, actually, in Houston we’re ready to say good riddance to it but I don’t think it’s going anywhere soon. As if we didn’t already have the hottest summers in the Wild West, we are setting record temperatures here this year. There is no font big enough for me to type the word “Bummer” as large as I feel it. I do not like hot weather. Especially hot, HUMID weather. But I’m not one to complain. I just walk out the door in the morning and yell at the top of my lungs, “GOOD GRIEF!”

On to much more important things! It’s time for Verse 13! We’ve made it over the hump to the second half of our commitment and I’m really pumped. Yesterday morning on the way to work, I said all the verses in my spiral out loud to God. To His great glory, I did indeed get my Psalm 112 segment memorized and it has been no small delight to me this month.

My selection this time around is coming from our SSBS, Me, Myself and Lies. Jennifer mentions it in Week Three. I’m a little ahead of you so, if you’re staying on schedule, you probably haven’t seen it yet. It’s Proverbs 7:4 out of the NASB. Since I primarily use the NIV, I had never seen it worded like this before.

Say to wisdom “You are my sister” and call understanding your intimate friend.

That’s what I’m saying! “You are my sister” to wisdom and “You are my intimate friend” to understanding. Now, that’s what I call some mighty fine soul mates. Try hanging out with them, why don’t we?

OK, let’s hear yours! Name, city, verse, and reference with translation abbreviations. Hit it, Siestas!

I love you and I’m so proud of you.
