Memory and a blanket

Yesterday we went to a book store and Dad bought me anther Bible. I love my other Bible, (A MacArthur study Bible NKJV) but I wanted a smaller one that I could take around with me so I wasn't taking my big study Bible every where. So Dad bought me a small ESV Bible. And I love it!!! I also started crocheting a blanket that I'd forgotten about. :) So as I'm crocheting my blanket I'm going to start memorizing the book of James again. Last year I had memorized all of chapter 1 and half way through chapter 2. But, sadly, I let it slip. So I'm picking it up again and instead of memorizing it in the NKJV again I'm going to memorize it in the ESV!! I'm so excited!!! I can't wait!! I'll keep ya'll up-dated.

Right on! the epistle of James is, in my opinion, one of the most doctrinally-important books in the Bible.

I love your new Bible, Ana. The leather-working on the cover is beautiful--just right for the treasure that is inside. I love the ESV, and I am sure you will enjoy it too. A lot of times when your dad makes a clarification about a greek word my Bible will have translated it something of the like, which is reassuring. :) I love the yarn colors for your new crocheting project and look forward to seeing your progress. I am so glad that you are taking advantage of your hand-work time to memorize James! That is such a wonderfully edifying book...something we should all have stored in our hearts! I look forward to talking to you again soon. Love, Katie
