Memory Verse #2 for 2010

Being part of Beth Moore’s Siesta Scripture Memory Team through her Living Proof Ministries (LPM) blog during 2009 created a great habit of memorizing two verses per month. Now, when the 1st and 15th of each month rolls around, I am automatically thinking about what verse I NEED to memorize next. And God always shows me just the right verse for the situation or circumstance that I’m going through at the time. (Sometimes I come up with so many verses that I just make a list in the back of my spiral of possible verses to memorize.)

Although Beth Moore is not continuing this fabulous tradition for 2010, I have a deep desire to do so. Awhile back I asked if anyone else wanted to join me this year, and I think I only had my friend Jenna take me up on the offer. And that’s ok.

However, if you would like to memorize 1-2 verses per month this year, I’d love to have you link up below and join us.

Would you consider joining me in memorizing some Scripture this year? We will check in on the 1st & 15th of each month to hold each other accountable. Here's a link to all of the Siesta Scripture Memory Team entries from last year. The first one has some wonderful tips on how to memorize.

So…enough about that. Here is my verse for this time.

Proverbs 10:19 (NIV)
“When words are many, sin is not absent,
but he who holds his tongue is wise.”

I came across this verse several days ago in my morning devotional as I’m reading a Proverb a day this month. I thought it was perfect for me because I tend to open my mouth a little TOO much at times and get myself in trouble or feel really badly later. So…I need to just learn to keep my mouth shut more! J

Yesterday, I came up with a way to “post” my verse in the kitchen so the whole family could work on it.

I have had this “dress me up” plate from Southern Living at Home for at least 4 years and have never even taken it out of the box until this Christmas. I enjoyed writing Christmas wishes and welcoming guests throughout December. It’s so cute that I really didn’t want to put it away. And that’s when I had this idea to write my memory verse on it. What do you think?

I'm looking forward to hearing from you! (I’m SO excited that I learned how to do this McLinky thing now! I just finished going through this little tutorial on the McLinky website. I hope it works!)

Drawing closer to Him in 2010!


  1. perfect timing sister-suzie-q! :)

    I just posted my 1st verse for the year before I saw you just posted this AM. I'm sorry I'm late but better late than never.

    I've wanted one of those plates for a long time but can't find one anywhere. I think it's a great way to display your verse.

    Have a great weekend without the kids. We're sure going to enjoy them. Thanks for letting us borrow them from you.

  2. I feel the same way you do about the developed habit, and I have come across several more who say the same thing, too. You'll see, if you go to my blog.
    This is a wonderful post. Thank you for sharing!

  3. What a great verse. So many have been coming my way about the tongue and words. It seems the Lord is not only impressing that on me, but everywhere I turn on my sisters in Christ. So interesting. Love the plate idea, too. That's fantastic!

    Glad to have you join in! Enjoy the buttons and graphics Extravagant Grace, too. That's what they are there for!
