I finished yesterday (last year) with:
Amen, Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen. (Revelation 22:20-21)
and began today (this year) with:
In the beginning God created...(Genesis 1:1)
I am excited to see what this year holds. (at least as excited as I can be filled with cold medicine and cold by-product!) I am participating in LPM's year of scripture memorization and am looking forward to learning 24 verses this year. (I'm also looking forward to the miracle that will enable me to memorize these scriptures!) This is the one that I have chosen for the first half of January:
Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is . Ephesians 5:15-17
I would love to have you join us on this memorization journey. (the more the merrier!) If you're interested, you can check out the details here. Oh, I also posted a bit about Genesis here if you are going to be reading through your Bible this year.
I hope you have a wonderful "new beginning" today! And does anybody know how many times one can blow/wipe one's nose before it spontaneously combusts?
