Welcome to Mega Memory Month (MMM) Progress Report #1.
This is intended to be a place and time to encourage one another—we’re in this together, right?But if you’re thinking what I’m thinking, you may be wondering: January just got started…how much progress can a person make in two days?Every word is progress, friends. Every single word.For that matter, just getting organized is progress, too. Don’t you think?Take a minute to describe your memory tools and share the first words you’ve attempted to lock down—or if you are just finding out about MMM, stop by the headquarters and announce your intentions. It’s definitely not too late.Check in using Mr. Linky if you write a Progress Report on your own blog (you can link up any time during the week).Or just talk to us in the comments.
Ann’s MMM Progress #1:Guess what? I found my old cards. This is progress, folks, and a sure sign that 2011 is going to be a really good year.I used them last time when I focused on John 14. I didn’t get far into John 15 that time. What I managed to tackle was shaky and didn’t stick.Or so I thought.I went ahead and read through the first card several times on my way to church. Despite my meager efforts from the last Mega Memory Month, I got some of it back. It’s not locked in or anything, but I think that the little I dipped into last time will find a home in the old noggin.Without looking, I typed the first section, then corrected afterward by crossing out what shouldn’t be there and adding new in pink:”I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off any every branch in me that does not bears no fruit, while any every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bears fruit on its own by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither will can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”It’s not perfect, but the fact that I retained any of it shocked me.Maybe I really will finish well?Our minds can hold more than we think they can.
