Burning the Midnight Oil...

The house is dark and quiet, everyone else is asleep. Is it not perfect time to study?

This week marked the beginning of the National Bible Bee for our family, as well as 5628 other contestants. It equals out as...

12 weeks + 800 memorized verses +competition = So many blessings!
But I'll admit it. It's been a very stressful year. Memorizing is a wonderful thing to do, but thirteen a day is a lot. When you have other responsibilities as well. ::needs to catch up:: So, I took last night to get caught up.

fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff f{I seriously look half-asleep. Wow o_O}

...using every technique to keep awake, from caffeine, to music, to pacing around the room. Oh, and of course, the camera got dragged into it, too. Yet, it was a very fruitful evening!

"But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. "The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
"therefore I will hope in him." The LORD is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD. " ~ Lamentations 3: 21~26

Until we meet again...

13 a day? That sounds like the ultimate Bible study! :)

Wow! That sounds like quite a bit of study. Good for you!
I happen to be a fan of late night studying, and writing.
