It’s July 31st.July 2009 Mega Memory Month is coming to a close.You can leave a link to your final project right now; or you may wish to link up tomorrow, because technically you do have until midnight July 31st to finish up. You might as well make the most of it!I hope you’ve had some success tucking a few stanzas of a song or lines from a poem into your head. Even if you weren’t able to complete your project, perhaps you absorbed some truth from Scripture if you chose a passage from the Bible to memorize.Hopefully you were able to stretch yourself a little, expand your memory capacity, and enjoy sharing your projects with friends and family.Now it’s time to wrap things up. As always, I encourage a final project to celebrate how far you’ve come. Create something to commemorate your own Mega Memory work!Post your links, summaries, and final thoughts in the comments … people can visit from there (I’m very sorry, but I don’t think I’ll be able to get Mr. Linky up in time).Ann’s MMM Final ProjectHere at family camp, I’m fortunate to have any Internet access at all. What I do have is limited, however, so I’m unable to upload any audio or video.Therefore, I’m going low-tech on my final project.I’m just typing it out. (Sorry to be so uninspired.)I’ll add color, though, to jazz it up. This time, red does not indicate a mess-up.The Road Not Taken, by Robert FrostTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fairAnd having perhaps the better claimBecause it was grassy and wanted wear;Though as for that, the passing thereHad worn them really about the same.And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I saved the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.Philippians 2:1-11If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:Who, being in very nature God,did not consider equality with Godsomething to be grasped,but made himself nothing,taking the very nature of a servant,being made in human likeness.And being found in appearance as a man,he humbled himself and became obedient to death–even death on a cross!Therefore God exalted him to the highest placeand gave him the name that is above every name,that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow,in heaven and on earth and under the earth,and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,to the glory of God the Father.Psalm 121I lift up my eyes to the hills–where does my help come from?My help comes from the LORD,the Maker of heaven and earth.He will not let your foot slip–he who watches over you will not slumber;indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.The LORD watches over you–The LORD is your shade at your right hand;The sun will not harm you by day,nor the moon by night.The LORD will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life.
The LORD will watch over your coming and goingboth now and forevermore.

We went out of town and I got behind on my blog-reading, sorry! I am not very creative but I decided to write an acrostic about the things I learned from memorizing Isaiah 55.
I – Indulge yourself in “rich food” and not that which does not satisfy (v. 2)
S – Seek the Lord today; in fact, how can you seek Him in this very moment? (v. 6)
A – All the nations are redeemed through Him. (v. 5)
I – Instead of sorrow there will be great rejoicing one day. (v. 13)
A – Anytime He speaks, His word accomplishes its purpose. (v. 11)
H – His ways and thoughts are higher than ours. (v. 8)
