Zip It!

The past few Tuesday nights I have been attending bible study. The study series is called Speaking Wisely, which is something I need to practice big time! One way I've been trying to conquer this "speaking wisely" thing is by memorizing scripture. I'm assuming if I had God's word floating in my brain, I'd be less likely to pop off a mean/unnecessary comment to some poor soul. This week's verse is from Proverbs.

Proverbs 10:19

When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.

So, today's goal is to not only resist the white sheet cake, lemon poppy seed muffins, and mini-cupcakes resting in the food cub, but also hold my tongue. As you can imagine, I'm up for a big battle today.

oh man! Talk about not making it easy on a person! HUGS!!!!

In Darly's confirmation class they are having the kids memorize some bible verses in hopes that like a song that gets stuck in your head that these verses will help them.

We need to get her to get some of those verses marked off on her sheet...she knows about half (maybe more) already.

I hope you're stronger than I am. That just might be too much for me all in one day.
