Good Monday morning!  Outside my window, there is plenty of winter.  A couple of inches of fresh snow, more than just a bit of ice (which fell as rain after the snow but then froze), and some very cold temperatures.  It was not quite the winter storm they predicted but I am still grateful to be snug at home today.  Nowhere to go and grateful for the fire today!  I have to admit that I do not miss having dogs of our own during these frigid days with icy sidewalks.  Makes “grand dogs” even grander:)

I also must admit, I did not do a great job of rehearsing my memory verse this past week.  But I will continue to work on it.  I have a memory system that I believe I have shared on the blog before; however, perhaps I will do that again sometime soon.  Committing verses to memory is definitely a work in progress.  I still want to begin another new one this week as well.  A few verses actually –

Matthew 6:19-21  “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Whether you are working on memorizing with me or not, I hope these verses will encourage you as a new week begins.  Here’s to focusing our thoughts and setting our hearts on Heaven!  I hope you will join me again on Wednesday and Friday.  Until then, happy Monday.
