Siesta Memory Verse 2

I cannot believe tomorrow is January 15 and it is time for another Siesta Scripture Memory Team verse! I continue on in John chapter 1, verse 4: In him was life, and the life was the light of men. (ESV)

I've fallen in the love with the ESV and decided to use it for memory work because I am not as familiar with it as I am some of the other translations. I use it to hand write books of the Bible as well. (There are are too many I's in this post.)

As American Christians we are able to freely buy Bibles and worship. Many of our brothers and sisters in Christ do not have the same luxury; many are in danger from radical members of other religions and or radical governments who oppose all religions. As I memorize Scripture this year; I hope I remember them.

Again, feel free to leave your verse/verses in a comment.

Hi, Annette! Great job memorizing! When I get lazy I "google" verses. I just started doing Beth's Breaking Free and I love turning the pages of my own paper Bible. I've never written it out myself. I just probably try it. I hope all is well with you, my friend. Hugs!

I wrote out James as part of Beth Moore's James Mercy Triumphs Study. Decided to write parts of the Bible this year in addition to memorizing Scripture. I led a few women's studies at my old church, did Breaking Free years ago. When you finish it, we can discuss it. We are doing ever so much better around here.

Love you Ang!

Love your verse, Annette. Mine this time is Eph. 4:2 NIV84:

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."
