Memory Monday

From memory:

Psalm 1:1-3
"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers

My goal was the entire chapter of Psalm 1 and I only got through half of it. I could give you all the reasons why but I'll just show you a few pictures that might help explain it.

Saturday morning's forecast called for about an inch of accumulation. Let's just say that Hubby couldn't keep the snow off the driveway or sidewalk, and there was more than enough for the kids to play in later in the afternoon. This was the truck from Virginia. These three men didn't know what hit them. They didn't look at The Weather Channel before they left and weren't really prepared. This truck had the 4,000 pounds of things that the military moved and stored for us, which was mostly our heaviest furniture, front porch/shed type items, and about 15 boxes.

Last week also brought our girls' 15th birthday, and I am so tardy in posting their birth story! I am going to do it tomorrow. I might have to make it a two-day story because I think it will probably get lengthy. Then when I'm done with it I will post some house pictures — actually inside! We still need to get our tree up, and Buddy's best friend and his mom are coming in from Virginia on Friday. I'm a little overwhelmed.

For next week's Memory Monday I will finish up with Psalm 1. I love Joanne's idea of memorizing the Christmas story from Luke. We used to read/quote it on Christmas at my grandparents' house before opening gifts in the afternoon. I am pretty sure it was in the KJV though. I don't have it completely memorized, so maybe after Psalm 1 I'll move on to it, but it will probably be the only thing I don't do in NIV.

Welcome to Michigan! We, on the west side of the state are getting hit again now! I don't know if this one is scheduled to go across the state, like it did on Saturday. I'm glad to hear you have your things though!

Well, looks like you have been busy!! Good to hear from you though:)

All of that snow is just gorgeous! Has it really put you in the Christmas mood? It was so fun for us this past weekend just seeing a little dusting.

No, this weekend wasn't for a job or anything, simply a speaking opportunity. We had a great time though, even if I'm absolutely exhausted-ha!

I'm looking forward to your girls' story!

What a beautiful neighborhood! A fresh new house..just waiting for years of memories to be added to it! So neat!

Psalm 1 ...what great verses to put in your heart!

Our family always read the Christmas story before opening presents, too!...yes, from the KJV! :) It's a nice tradition...but when I was little, it seemed like the longest story EVER!

Been praying for you. Hope you are getting settled!

Thank you kindly for stopping by my Memory Monday post - You have been busy and your neighborhood looks lovely!
Growing up I memorized Scripture from the KJV and now I'm writing His Word on my heart from the NASB - I get my wires crossed often! The NIV has been on my wish list since I'd heard Beth Moore use it. I love hearing different versions though.
Enjoy your company this weekend!
