Siesta Memory Verse 2011

I am going to sow at least 24 Scriptures into my heart in 2011. After prayer, I think they will all come from the Gospels. I am looking forward to seeing which verses other Siestas choose.

I need the accountability of the roll call, I didn't commit many Scriptures to heart in 2010.

How about you? Will you join the Siestas once again in 2011?

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

I did it last time and am planning to go for it again. It absolutely helps me to have that accountability. We'll have to keep tabs on each other :-)
I didn't get to go to the party at the end, but I did memorize all 24 verses and still carry them around with me.
Happiest of Christmases Annette!

I can't believe you just mentioned the Siesta Memory Verse. I was just thinking about closing this computer and start looking for my first verse. Then I stopped here to say hi to you! Yes, my friend. I'm doing it, too! If you think about it, will you hold me accountable and ask me about it? I need it SOOOOOOO much!

Merry Christmas, Annette!
Love you,

I am reading through Robert Morgan's 100 verses this year and hoping to learn all 100. (Some are very short.) I haven't decided if I am going to participate in the Siesta memory verse challenge but I will be learning verses along with you. Merry Christmas!

love you,
