SSMT 2017: Verse 19!

Hi Siestas! I’m writing this while visiting one of my baby grandsons. I have found a whole new level of delight, watching the world unfold before his sweet, young eyes. Whimsy and wonder, sheer gut-wrenching joy in the simplest of new experiences. The giggles, unencumbered, the wide-eyed enchanting outlook on life. He teaches me, he inspires me, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that one of my main purposes in grandparenting will be sharing our awe in the wonders and majesty of Jesus. Generation after generation. So…

Nancy Mattingly from Houston, Texas

“God is magnificent; He can never be praised enough.  There are no boundaries to His greatness. Generation after generation stands in awe…” Psalm 145:3,4  – The Message

I pray that for you and yours as well…total awe at His greatness and goodness. May the simple, profound love of Jesus pour over each of you as you continue to meditate and memorize His perfect Word.

    I have just discovered SSMT and am pretty excited. I’ve never been good at memorization but have al aye felt a yearning to have them close at hand. I didn’t have the courage or believe that I could commit the the time to actually memorize so I posted scripture around the house. I even have a big chalk board that I use. After discovering this blog today I have decided to jump in and commit to SSMT. I realize that I won’t get in much before now and the end of the year but God seems to be pushing me not to wait so here goes….(picture eyes closed and foot stepping off that high dive!). I think my first attempt should be the 23rd Psalm–I like to start big plus I’ve never. Deb able to get it all memorized.

    The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures..He leadeth me beside the still waters…He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake. Yea though I walk through the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (KJV)
