My siblings are pretty amazing. I love them all! They have come up with a whole set of rules for living while my parents are gone. Such rules as (there are more, but I can't remember them):
* They will get up by seven.
* They will then take a walk around the neighborhood together.
* They will then have family devotions and eat breakfast.
* One hour of online time per person per day.
* Everyone must be in their own room by 9pm.
* Lights must go out by 10pm.

So I suggested that they memorize a verse, I didn't think they'd take me seriously. But they call me at work today and tell me to get busy. I need to memorize all of Psalm 27 by the time my parents get home. Wow. That is 14 verses (so we need to memorize about 3.5 a day! Get busy). I have posted it, so that all of you can join in and memorize it with us. :)

Psalm 27
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
4 One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.
7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
13 I am still confident of this: will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

Wow! Rules. Is this a republic or a dictatorship?;-)
I LOVE the scripture challenge. I have still been practicing our mission's verse so it won't leave this ol' brain.
