Lovely Mornings & Scripture Memory

I love cool crisp  mornings. It is finally feeling like Fall here. It actually has been very chilly at night. I have really enjoyed these cuddle type cozy nights and for sure the mornings.

Coffee brewing, blankets, soaks, Bible time, quietness, and the still fresh beginning of the day.  I will admit sometimes I get so cozy I want to linger all day in my spot.

Today was just a perfect morning for muffins. The kids love waking up to the smell of them.
I like the smell and the taste!!! *Smiles*



I thought I would show you all our board we put up our current memory scriptures. We memorize or at least attempt to memorize (read over daily and discuss) weekly new scriptures. My husband discusses the scripture and bases a weekly devotion off that scripture during family dinner one night a week.


Do you memorize scripture, focus on certain passages, or anything of this nature?  Maybe your past the "kid devotion stage" but do you do it yourself? 

Blessings,
Chrissy

  1. I don't purposely memorize them as I did when I was a child, but if your read your scriptures enough you will certainly retain many of the.

    1. Very true! Reading it enough hides them in your heart for sure.

  2. My children memorizes chapters for school. My goal is to master each book of the N.T. it will take forever to do this. I love taken a topic for instance "wisdom" and referencing it out all through out the Bible. To gain a deeper meaning or a fuller meaning. I love studying God's Word.

  3. The last several years the kids have been working on memorizing Hebrews 11. I haven't memorized anything new for a while, but I do work on memorizing scripture at times.

  4. Such a lovely post, dear Chrissy. I remember as a child learning Scripture with my mom and now I do it with my son {{smiles}}

    Happy November to you! Hugs!

  5. Mmmm... muffins. I like how simple they are to make.

    Megan had weekly verse memorization when she was in school. We've been a bit lax on it so far this year. Second semester we are going to add writing scripture as part of our Bible lesson and to use for penmanship. I love how when you hide the verses in your heart they tend to just pop out in conversation and thought.

    1. That is a perfect way to hide in the word in a heart. Writing it!!

  6. I'm ashamed to admit that once the kids all graduated from our homeschool, I stopped memorizing scripture.

  7. The older I get, the harder it is to memorize. One thing that amazes me though, is how much I remember from learning it as a child. I may not be able to tell you the scripture references, but the verses come pretty easily still. Youth is truly the time to soak it up!!

    1. This is why it is crucial to train and teach our children.

  8. Chrissy, when the children were young, we did memorize Scripture plus they were in Awana and they learned more verses there. I have gotten out of the habit of memorizing but I am starting again. xx
