My Scripture memory is coming along well! I have memorized Psalm 25:4-5 and Romans 8:25. For the next two weeks, I'm working on Isaiah 40:28-31. I've got the first two verses memorized and almost the last two. It is definitely the Lord's grace in helping me remember these verses. It has been a good exercise for my brain and even better for my soul. I am not trying to memorize one a week or anything like that; just plugging along until I get my list completed. You can find my list on the pages sidebar in the upper left-hand corner. Next to some of them I have put how many weeks it should take me to memorize. Those are just estimates!
I served the homeless last Tuesday and we had a good crowd. The 1st Tuesday of each month, we serve hot sliced ham, corn, roasted potatoes, a green salad and a fruit salad, rolls and dessert. We have been averaging about 70-90 men (and some ladies) each month. We have a group of 5 people who make and serve the meals and we have a total of 4 teams so each team serves 3 times a year. I always look forward to it. After we serve, our team usually goes out to lunch and that's a fun time of fellowship!
Tomorrow I'm having lunch with a friend who suffers from a chronic illness. We have been trying to get together for weeks now. Either she has been out of town, I have been out of town, she's been too sick, it has snowed or something has derailed our plans. Lord willing, I will see her tomorrow and we'll have the afternoon to catch up on things. Julianne will be gone on a field trip all day so I won't need to pick her up from co-op.
Tomorrow night is my weekly Bible study with a friend and we always meet at Panera Bread. We have a wonderful meal together, a time for sharing of the things in our lives and a time to study. I can't think of a nicer way to pass the evening.
That's about all from here. I'll leave you with my memory verse for the next two weeks. It has been such an encouragement to me to memorize this verse and to know that the Lord is the one who will help me when I'm weary and tired...and He will never fail!!
Do you know know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary;
they will walk and not be faint.
