Siesta Scripture Memory Team

This year I'm joining a group of women ("siestas") to memorize 24 scriptures. Here are my first two:

Jan 1 - "Create in me a pure heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit within me." ~Psalm 51:10

Jan 15 - "Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them." ~1 Corinthians 7:17

Look for a new scripture every two weeks! And if you want more info about the SSMT, check out Living Proof Ministries' blog:

Part 2

Joanna Katherine McClendon was born on October 12 at 2:51 p.m., weighing exactly one pound and going to be with Jesus less than an hour later.

God knew what would happen next. He knew every day of my life before I was even born! And He knew that neither the cerclage nor the medications would stop my labor, that I would suffer from pulmonary edema, that the doctor’s would decide to break my water and move forward with the next delivery…and he knew that little Rita Elizabeth would be born exactly 2 days, 10 hours, and 38 minutes after her sister.

My Story...

It's time to share my story. Part of God's story in my life. I want to share my story with you. I pray that it will reach into your heart and awaken your soul. I pray that as a result of my story, YOU will remember your first love.

It was supposed to be a nice 4-day weekend with my husband. Then I was supposed to return home while he stayed and completed his rotation. I was supposed to go back to work on Tuesday and finish the semester with my wonderful gifted students.

Supposed to...

"Life doesn't always turn out like you hoped." I had heard that phrase many times before in my short 28 years of life. However, I never really knew what it meant until last October.

Thou has taught me to say...

When peace like a river attendeth my way,
  When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot Thou hast taught me to say,
  "It is well, it is well with my soul!"
