Monday Manna for March 2 (and consecration)

I'm over at Exemplify today for my Ponderings on the Pentateuch series. I'd love to have you stop by and read about Consecrated Body Parts. And check out the other bloggers while you're there, eh?

And now on to the other stuff...

Monday Manna

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

For those of you unfamiliar, on the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse. The verse is posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be a long post -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional.

This week, I'm doing something a little different. I have actually chosen two verses. They are both favorites of mine, and are similar in topic, if you will. You are free to do your Monday Manna post on the first, the second, or both. I am VERY much looking forward to the insights I receive myself, and from the rest of you.

So, without further ado, here's some scripture to chew on over the weekend!
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 NIV
And some more ;)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 NIV
Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. Don't forget to post, then come back and link up at my blog on Monday!


  1. Ooooo! I've got an entry that is AWESOME on the first verse. (tehe - well, I think so ;) ) Hope I remember the date. ; ) Love ya girl - have a blessed one today and thanks for visiting.

  2. Oops ... wrong verse ... my entry was on the "Let us make man ..." one - pooey. See ya later gator! ; )

  3. I might just join your Monday Manna meme, Joanne. These verse are GREAT ones to meditate on - Words some of us have heard a hundred million times. Good choice!

    (On a side note - how do you get a picture beside your post blurb on the dashboard reading list? It's killing me that I can't figure it out.)


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
