24 verses

Well today marks the day of the last memory verse for this year.  One year ago I embarked on a journey to memorize 24 verses - 2 per month.  I've posted many of them.  I was part of a greater group of women who committed to memorizing 24 verses this year.  We were accountable to each other by posting our verses on a website.  The goal was to keep all of those verses by memory and to hide them in my heart.  Now I must confess that I need to review some of them - but the task has been accomplished.  I've made it through.  And you can be sure that next year I will be continuing to hide God's Word in my heart.   He has used every single verse that I memorized in this year.  This year that has been one wild ride.  Never in a million years would I have thought that at this time I'd be sitting at home on a Tuesday morning blogging before taking my boys to Kindermusik.  If you would have asked me, I would have answered that I'd be in a class with 10 little munchkins with special needs teaching for CPS. 

God's ways are not are ways - and boy am I glad that they aren't!  His plans are so much better.

So here is the last verse of the year.  I will be posting the new verses in the sidebar for 2010... continuing to hide His Word in my heart so that I may talk about it when I'm sitting down, and walking along the road - when I lie down and when I get up. 

Psalm 27:4
One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek;
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek Him in His temple.
