Multi-Tasking

Memorizing Bible Verses

The older I get the less I tolerate tool noise, so I trim the grass edges by hand. While carrying out this chore along side flower beds, I get to enjoy the flowers and check for any disease or bug problems, but it can get a bit boring when cutting the grass next to sidewalks, the patio or the cement garage foundation. I used to try to talk on the phone, but sometimes no one is available to talk or the conversation ends before or extends beyond the chore. What to do?

Resume Beth Moore's Bible Memory Verse Challenge to memorize 24 verses (2 per month) in a year. We pick our own verses so they have personal application or meaning to us. I'm not very good at sitting myself down to do scripture memory, but I am finding myself looking forward to cutting the grass now because I get to work on my memory verses. In fact, I think of it as memorizing time and I just happen to be getting the grass cut at the same time.

What a good idea, to combine a routine task that doesn't occupy your mind, with something you may not otherwise find time for.
ps - your popcorn sounds delicious!!

Thanks so much for the encouragement to learn Bible verses! And I love your blog-- get back at it, girlfriend. Must tell you, too, that when I clicked on your blog and got music, my little grandboy started dancing around. :)

PS-- thanks for the tip about memorizing Bible verses. More and more from years of reading, I get verses popping into my mind. Better if I choose and memorize. And when your music came on, grandson enjoyed dancing. :)
