Still playing make believe.

I’m joining Beth Moore and a few thousand other women in SSMT.

SSMT stands for Siesta Scripture Memory Team.

I’ve committed to memorize 24 Bible verses this year. That’s one every two weeks.


I used to be really good at memorizing, but it’s been a day or two. Now I’m  more than just a little nervous.

Yesterday I posted my first verse to SSMT–Eph. 3: 17 & 18. Truthfully, it’s 17B & 18, just to have a complete sentence and so it’ll make sense.

Here it is–And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and deep is the love of Christ.

Why am I doing this? Because I’ve been a Christian for a long time. A very long time. And I’m hungry for a closer walk with Him. What better way to start than to “hide His word in my heart” so I can meditate on it?

I’d appreciate your prayers for my success–not just so I can say I’ve succeeded, but so that I’ll find that place where I need to be.

If you’ll let me know what you’re up to, and I’ll return the favor.

BTW: Anybody else part of the team?
