I've had a minor surgery and missed some work. I haven't been on the computer much at all for a week or so. I haven't blogged in two weeks. I have 923 items in my reader and 162 emails. My house is a disaster. But this one thing, I didn't want to miss. It is time once again for a memory verse. I am doing two per month and doing alright with them. Here's the next one:
It is time once again to share the Scripture I am memorizing. I don't know if you all are enjoying the Scripture, but I am seriously enjoying memorizing it. Two verses per month is totally do-able for me. And what I am trying to do is choose Scripture I NEED....
So here it is (John 10:10 from the New International Version):
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
This morning as I was taking the sheets off our beds to be washed, my wonderful and beautiful wife, Jamie, asked me, "Are you my Iron Man?" Thinking she was thinking of the superhero, "Iron Man", I said, "Yes." After all I am one of her protectors (God being the strongest) right?
Then she showed me a pair of wrinkled pants and a wrinkled shirt and asked if I could iron them for her. Oh Man! I forgot that I do a lot of ironing for Jamie in the mornings, so she can have time to spend with God. Imagine the "irony" when I realized just what kind of Iron Man she was asking me to be for her.
Even though I am not always in the mood to do some ironing for Jamie, I try my best to do it with a servant heart. Knowing that Jamie is a daughter of the KING, that makes GOD my Father-in-Law! I had better treat HIS little girl with respect and love. So I ironed for my Bride. I was her Iron Man!

Here's the next verse in my quest to memorize 2 verses of Scripture each month this year. I love this Scripture because it tells us we can participate in the divine nature. Of course, I like the idea of escaping the corruption of the world, too!
"His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires." 2 Peter 1:3-4 (NIV)
