a lil' singing and saying memory verses :)

I have really been wanting to do more memory verses with the littles. It is such an important thing to hide His words in our hearts. And Hubby and I said, the more we're teaching them, the more we're learning them too! :)

I happened to be stalking my dear friend, Jill's blog a month or two ago, and I came across a post where one of her sweet (sweet) littles was saying her first memory verse, I got so excited. :) Her SIL made a set of ABC scripture memory verses and Jill had the link on her blog! And the verses Jill quoted on her blog about teaching/learning/memorizing scripture are right on.

I started working on them with the babies... err... the boys ;), and they've been doing great and loving it! Annnd, it's great for Hubby and me because when "a situation" erupts, I mean, occurs in our home ;), we can say, "What does your A verse {insert any} say?" They can recite it and we talk about it and remind them what God says in the Bible.

Thank you Jill and Aunt Sara!! It has been such a blessing. And they're cute. :) 

BabyBoy loves to say them all in a row, so even when learning the newest verse, they are still repeating the previous verses, and then they string them all together. :) They have almost memorized their F verse!

Here are verses A-E. :)

{BabyBoy turned 5 years old this summer :) He's so old!}

{Little turned 3 years old this summer - we couldn't imagine he would get this old! ;)}

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
Be kind to one another and build each other up. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Create in me a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
Do unto others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31
Every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God. Romans 14:11

And here is Littlest singing a little bit of Jesus Loves Me and Hosanna (in the highest) :-) The perfect medley. ;)

{Littlest is one and a half years old, she is growing and maturing so fast!}

It sounds like Little is saying, "Luke 6:41, but he is saying firty-one," hehe, that is still how he pronounces his 3s most of the time still, unless reminded, sweet boy. :-) Also, in his B verse, I LOVE that he says, "Be kind to another nother..." We always correct their speech and then we miss it so much when they start pronouncing things the right way, so we figure we can wait just a little bit before completely correcting that one. ;-)

So sweet, D! There is nothing sweeter than hearing our little ones recite scripture and have it in their hearts. What a precious thing!
