MMM: Progress (Or Lack Thereof) Report

Well, Mega Memory Month has been a little rougher this time than in January. I did finish memorizing the poetic narrative of A Gospel Primer for Christians, but Romans 5 has been slow going. We had guests over the weekend, and I wasn't diligent to do my daily memory work. Now that it's already July 21, I don't think I can finish the chapter by the end of the month.

But...tomorrow is another day! As I was helpfully reminded recently, we are not striving for perfection, but for excellence. Tomorrow morning, Lord willing, I will work on the next little bit of Romans 5 and keep plugging away. Whether I have it committed to memory by July 31 or whether it takes me a few extra days, meditating on it and living it out will be a lifelong process anyway!

How's your memorization going? Who's with me this month? I'd love to hear about your progress in the comments and/or over at Ann's blog.

This has been the first MMM that hasn't been a total struggle for me. I'm sorry it's the opposite for you! But I like your conclusion that excellence is the goal, not perfection. It's a reminder to keep plugging away and focus on the heart of the project, not simply the quantity of words. You're a gem!
