Opportunity


The house is quiet; kids are still sleeping and hubby's gone to the office. It's a grey day outside, but I feel motivated and excited by the prospect of a fresh start. Holidays and birthdays are just days like any other but recognizing them makes a break in the steady, relentless march of time. It feels like a new opportunity.
Here is one opportunity I'm going to take; Beth Moore is having a scripture memorization challenge on the LPM blog. I'm going to give it a go. My memory's not so good but at the very least, I'll have a stack of relevant scriptures to go to.
Be very careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. Eph. 5:15-17

I'm doing it, too. I'm incorporating it into my weekly scripture memorization (Memory Monday) with Joanne, The Simple Wife.
New beginnings...I like 'em, too.
