Memory Verse #9!

Wow, #9, we’re almost in the double digits, right? It’s been such a busy weekend, I don’t even know where to start. On Saturday, I decided to do laundry. And after my first load was done, I realized my washer did not work properly! I tried a few times more, with an empty washer, of course. And it still did not work. It’s not rotating, and it’s not spinning.

Well, here I was with at least four loads to do… I knew it needed to be done by Monday morning because my daughter’s work uniform had to be clean by Monday morning. So, on Sunday, of all days, I looked up a laundry place in the yellow pages, packed everything up and went there after church. Very interesting, I must tell you. You get to meet some interesting people. The good part was, I was done in under 2 hours, all four loads washed and dried.

But now, I still have to figure out what to do about my washer. Do I call someone in, spend the money, and still have to buy a new one? I don’t know yet. Still have to think about it.

After this whole laundromat experience I went to see a friend graduate. That was mega-exciting! She took this huge step of getting back to school. I admire her so much. I’ve seen her faith being tested, I’ve seen her being stretched beyond anything I could imagine. And she’s such a strong person! I love her, love her! I told her when she made the decision to go back to school, that I’d be there at her graduation. And it was so neat to see her up front receiving her degree! I continue to pray for her, for her family and her future.

Beth Moore suggested a memory verse on her blog, and I’ve decided to memorize it as well, especially after seeing my friend graduate yesterday. So here is my verse:

Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14 New Living Translation

Rely on the LORD! Be strong and confident! Rely on the LORD!” Psalm 27:14 NET Bible

I have not decided yet which translation I’ll use. But they are both really good. So let’s hear your memory verses!


  1. 1 Peter 1:6-7 (NIV)

    In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jseus Christ is revealed.

  2. I will be memorizing Psalm 51:10-11

    Create in me a clean heart, O God.
    Renew a loyal spirit within me.
    Do not banish me from your presence,
    and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.
