Memory Verse 2008, part 2

Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again: Rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all that you do. Remember the Lord is coming soon. Don't worry about anything instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He's done. Then you will experience God's peace which exceeds anything we can understand.

Philippians 4: 4 - 6

We have been making a habit of reciting/memorizing this verse together as a family during dinner together. Little did I realize how perfect God's choice of a family verse would be when I decided we would learn this one together.

All throughout the day little snippets of the verse will come to mind. And I can see Bram and all his hand movements in my mind too....

OK, Valarie, can you tell me this?
How can you possibly be at your wits end with that little guy???
I'm kidding. Because I understand. Very. Very. Well.
But memorizing TRUTH and repeating it frequently is a very good thing to do. Oh! Do I talk about that in my book? Sure do! *grin*
Keep up the good work, Mom. And keep trusting in the One who will see you through.

Ah, I love hearing your stories from across the world.

And I am encouraged each time I read something from you, because I know that somewhere in Spain, someone else is trying to balance officership with motherhood with being a wife and a friend and....all that other stuff.

We have Skype...we should chat sometime.
