Siesta Scripture Memory Verse 10

I love this verse:

"May all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you!
May those who love your salvation
say evermore, 'God is great!'"

Psalm 70:4

As I'm seeking the Lord, through every situation, I have a responsibility to rejoice.  No matter what my circumstances may be at the moment, I should be glad, IN HIM.  The blessing of His salvation should prompt me to reflect daily on the greatness of our God--the ultimate reason for joy.

Menu Planning Monday

I haven't posted a meal plan in a while, and this one is abbreviated since we will be with family this weekend.  I'm trying to get by with what we have one hand, which might explain having soup during a week in which temperatures are supposed to soar to near 90!  Yikes, this IS only May.  I do love the sun, though!!

 I'm hoping to post some pics of Tinkerbell's fourth birthday sometime this week.  Stay tuned . . . . Without further ado, here's the plan:

T--Soup and Sandwiches
W--Baked Ravioli
Th--Date Night with Joel -- I'm planning on having veggie patties--ahem  "chicken patties"--for the little ones.  They love them.  Shhh--don't tell :)

Have a great week!

Siesta Scripture Memory Verse 9

As school wraps up this year, the boys are memorizing a portion of James 1-2: what great, practical wisdom can be found in that book!  For this memory verse, I've chosen a verse from this passage, James 1:26:

"If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless."  (ESV)

I don't want to deceive myself.  I want God's Word to penetrate the depths of my heart, changing my life so that the overflow of my heart evinces God's work in every area, including my speech.
