Memory Monday & Baby, Oh Baby!

Merry Memory Monday to you! I tucked verses in my heart this week that I remember memorizing as a child in the KJV. I struggled confusing verse two with the KJV; but I finally got it. Here's John 1:1-2 from memory:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. John 1:1-2

Don't you just love how the book of John opens? Victoria Leigh is writing an outline and a thesis statement for a paper. It's like the thesis statement of the book of John is in the first two verses. The awesomeness of thinking that when the beginning began, the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Next week I'm going to tuck Acts 1:8 in my heart:

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. Acts 1:8 (NASB)

All the way home from worship, Victoria Leigh told us all about the sweet and adorable babies that she helped care for in the nursery at church. She was so excited about each and every baby in the nursery, I was convinced that we attend The Church with all The Sweetest babies gracing the nursery. She could have sold tickets to allow people to just come by and take a peek at these darlin's with her delicious descriptions. The telling of sweet details of their expressions when they woke up, their precious names, all about their blankies and diaper bags continued through lunch and by the time we arrived at a baby shower the teens and I were invited to on Sunday afternoon, I had baby fever. BAD. But me oh my, my fever subsided with this darlin' baby that we were celebrating. Oh my, he is darlin'. And I love the sweet look on Audra's face as she just soaked him in while his mama opened gifts and his daddy recorded them. I thought that was sweet - I'd never heard of a proud papa doing that and it just blessed my heart.The baby shower was the perfect occasion to use some sheets from the treasure box of vintage paper I found at a small shop in a nearby town. It delighted my heart when the new mama told me she loved the paper and didn't want to tear it so she could keep it - oh, little things delight me!

John 1:1 is profound. Also, like that Holy Spirit verse. Excellent choice Lora.
Side note...maybe the package is to be tucked in your heart and not on a post. B

Blessings Lora...Congratulations! Double for knowing it before and now learning it in another version and keeping it straight! Nonetheless John 1:1-2 is an awesome verse to have on the tip of your tongue but even moreso to realize how powerful that verse is!


Followed by Acts!!! Good choices!

Happy baby time...how precious your words describing this eventful baby shower & church nursery! I do agree with you about the photo of the baby & Audra and also the sweet vintage wrapping paper!

I miss this group but I'm still memorizing just carrying my verse for one more week for many reasons! We are using "Embracing the Word" and up to another of my favorite verses 2 Chronicles 7:14...to pray humbly, my focus for the next 40 days starting Weds. Thanks again for those memory cards! God bless you & all the beautiful babies!

Welcome Hope!

B - that is a good thought about tucking the package in my heart. It's probably why the post would not come together. Thank you kindly for your insight.

Peggy, I miss you on Memory Monday! I'm delighted the Embracing the Word cards are being used to tuck more of His Words in your heart.
