Verses & Tips :)

It looks like the list I'm using has "themes" for each week; that will be a fun addition! :)  This week's theme is cheerfulness and rejoicing.  Okay, so here are the verses:
  • Sunday--Ecclesiastes 3:1,4:  "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven:...A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance."
  • Monday--Job 8:21:  "He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing."
  • Tuesday--Ecclesiastes 7:3: "Sorrow is better than laughter, for by a sad countenance the heart is made better."
  • Wednesday--Luke 6:21: "Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be filled.  Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh."
  • Thursday--Genesis 21:6: "And Sarah said, 'God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.'"
  • Friday--Job 5:22: "You shall laugh at destruction and famine, and you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth."
  • Saturday--Proverbs 31:25: "Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come."
So as you can see these verses are not that long; I'm not finding it too difficult to memorize one per day.  Now, for a few tips!

I'm using a slightly different method this time around; to accommodate my college schedule that's very busy and requires a lot of books, I'm writing each verse on a bookmark!
Just take a piece of cardstock and cut it width-wise every inch or so.  I actually used leftover paper from a small album, which makes my bookmarks a little shorter.  You could fit four verses on one bookmark if you aren't doing it in more than one language.  This lets me carry them around and review often.  Make sure to leave the extra space; next week we'll discuss ways to fill it. :)

All right. NOW you have my curiosity up. What IS the blank space for? I don't WANT to wait until next week to learn. . . (can you hear that whine in my voice there???) :)

I might have to join you after I finish Desire of Ages this month! We'll see....I do know that I want to do something Bible-based, whether it be this or reading through the Bible again.

Photobug--would be happy to have you! You could do both... ;)
