So the test that I’ve been waiting for her has arrived, or at least the beginning stages of it.  I’ve been break-neck busy, falling in bed at nights exhausted and hanging on by a thread some days.  But the results so far?  My memorization has stayed on track!  This has been so encouraging as I feel like I’ve latched on to something that is doable with this pace.  Now my review schedule has slipped the last week, but I am Ok with that.  I can pick it up again. 

So far this year I’ve memorized Psalm 1-5, James, and 1 Peter 1 and in a few days it will be chapter 2 also.  So pretty good. 

Now for new challenges.  I started a memorization course.  I found it on someone’s post on memorizing the whole Bible.  This is good and bad.  It will be good if I can increase my ability to memorize (though at this point I’m not necessarily looking for quantity), but at the same time I don’t want to lose sight of the meditation.  If I memorize the whole Bible and can recite it easily, what good is it if it has not gone deep into my soul?  So this is something I have to balance.  Also, my homework is competing a little bit for my thoughts and attention.  At this point, I don’t know whether it is a good thing or bad–the verdict is still out.
