My Own MMM

mmmBack in October 2008, for the first-ever Mega Memory Month, I attempted to memorize the NIV version of John 14.But I didn’t quite make it to the end. And what I did memorize was a little shaky.By gum, I’d like to finish what I started. Thus, my January MMM is to ice the cake…stick the landing…and cross the  John 14 finish line!That is to say, my goal is to be able to recite from memory, smoothly and without hesitation, John 14…all the way from “Do not let your hearts be troubled” to “Come now; let us leave.”And if I manage that, I’d like to add on John 15:1-17.And along with that, because I’m feeling kind of crazy-bold at the beginning of the year, as if anything’s possible even with this ineffective sieve-mind of mine, I’m adding on a poem.Something tells me it’ll be doable because, for one thing, most poems offer handy things like rhythm, rhyme, and other elements that aid memorization. To make it even easier on myself, I’ve selected an oft-quoted and familiar poem (in fact, I know it pretty well–I’ve just never actually memorized it verbatim):Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, by Robert FrostAnd that’s my Mega Memory Month personal challenge:John 14 (freshen it up & finish) + John 15:1-17 and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert FrostOkay.Better get started on my review.Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you….

    1. Hey Ann! Sounds MEGA to me “O) and I am again, so pleased that you started this! I hope we all have a chance to finish “O) I can assure you mine won’t be in this installment. But what does it matter?

      I have eternity “O)!!!

    2. I will be participating, but I’ve already lost two days! arg! :)

      At the very least I will also be finishing off my verses (John 15) from the previous MMM challenge. But I am also considering an additional task for this installment: I would like to learn the map of the states. (Long story as to my ignorance; suffice it to say that I am geographically challenged while possessing an amazing sense of direction and location.)

      By Monday, I’ll post about my commitment and be sure to link back to you. Looking forward to another month of brain training! Thanks for organizing and hosting.
