I'm all about taking videos of the little man, however, I tend to shy away from taking videos of myself. But as part of my January goals, I wanted to memorize more scripture, and what better way to keep myself accountable than taking a video where I recite what I've memorized!? I have learned almost all the songs on the Seeds of Courage CD, but I also started memorizing 1 Peter, and that's what is in the video below.
Please forgive the fact that I look away from the camera more than I look at it, it's a definite downside to webcams where you have to stare at yourself. And forgive my looooong pauses while I try to remember what verse I'm on. :)
(Okay, when I watch this now, the audio and video are totally off. I don't know about you, but that bugs me to NO END! So feel free to skip this video because I wouldn't be able to stand watching when it's off like that. You have my permission. :)
Scripture memory is pretty awesome, by the way. I have loved reminding myself that "In His great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade." Good stuff. Absolute truth from the pages of the Living Word.
It is not easy to memorize, but it is so good for me. I've decided that if I can still remember all the words to all the dumb rap songs I learned in high school, then I can probably learn a few chapters of scripture. And if you're looking to begin memorizing, DEFINITELY check out the Seeds of Worship CDs! It's so much easier to remember the words when they're set to catchy music.
And I can always use another reason to serenade my munchkin.
