Peter




Have you ever memorized the books of the bible? I confess that I've attempted to several times. I get the New Testament, but I stumble on the Old Testament minor prophets.

Good morning Sally, as always your cartoon is cute.

It is good to be home today. I love to visit my sister in Atlanta but home is where the heart is.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Blessings...Jeanne

That cartoon is so cute. The only way I was ever able to memorize the books of the Bible was to learn the songs. I can't say them, but I think I can still sing them. I haven't tried in a while. Many years ago I taught these songs, both the O.T. and the N.T. to kids in Sunday School.
Have a great day.

The view in Floriday is certainly different from that here on the Cape!! I don't see any snow.

No, I've never tried to memorize but I do remember playing Sunday School when I was little with my step sisters. I think several of us got our own bible that year :)

take care,
Dawn

Sitting here this morning waiting for my slow computer to pull up your blog, I was smiling. It should make you feel good knowing you cause so many to smile. Yes, I have memorized the books of the Bible. I have been able, over the years, to open to any book I was looking for. Now that I do not handle it as often, it doesn't come as easy as before. How soon we forget.

Hey Sally! Thanks for stopping by yesterday. I have had limited sucess with memorizing the books of the bible but I just put the book tabs on each beginning page and I can find what I need that way. Love the cartoon and your little heart box from yesterday was very nice. Susan

Love that cartoon, Sally!

I have tried to memorize them (have done it at points in my life) and promptly get twisted around when I'm asked to list them in order. I took Old and New Testament in college and had to know them then, plus I memorized them at a younger age... but I stumble on some of the chapters to this day. I know what you mean about the prophets.

XO,

When I was a child I was an alter girl the first one at my church.I could recite all the names,but as I got older my mind is like a sieve stuff leaks out...I still read them , they still comfort me but I have no need to memorize it anymore.

Hi Sally
Your backyard header is so warm and inviting I can tell you. Its quite nippy here today and they are calling for freezing rain as the afternoon moves along.
Your backyard looks to be a relaxing place to read...
enjoy your day.

Love the cartoon! And yes, I have learned the books of the Bible by heart. When I was a little girl, my jr. church teacher taught us a song to help us remember them. :)

I did as a child for GA's, Acteens and Bible Drill. I confess, I cannot remember them. I even help children memorize now, but still have difficulty now. I have always had problems remembering though.

ellen b said...

Yes I've memorized them but my retention is so poor I just have a general idea of where they all fall except for the real obvious ones and the New Testament. I just got the tip in the New Testament that all the T books are in alphabetical order starting with I Thessalonians, etc...

Hey Sally,

I thought I'd let you know that since Robert died in 1790, I wasn't too close to him. Wink wink!! What you saw was a quote I posted about the hymn writer of "Come thou fount of many blessings" which was the video I posted. Sorry you couldn't get it to load and appreciate your compassion, but I had to chuckle when I read your comment.

Love it!!!

tammy said...

I haven't, but I think I've heard them put to song before. That would help me!

Betty said...

Loved the cartoon.

I don't know the books of the Bible by heart, but I pretty well know where to turn in the Bible to find each book especially in the New Testament.

Thanks for visiting me today. Oh, I love the picture of your back yard. It is beautiful.

The secret is to set them to music. At least that's how I learned them when I was in Youth Seminary Class in Junior High School.
