Verses vs. Verses...

I have been wanting to do this for a while now but I know it's going to be a long post and take me a while to post them all but I feel like I need to post them now for my sake as well as other's. A few people I know are going through some hard times and some very trying times so I hope they find answers and inspiration here in some of the verses. The verses I am posting are ones that Logan is learning and memorizing this year in pre-k at Trinity. When I first saw some of them I was thinking there is now way he is going to memorize these but Logan along with the Lord has surprised me and he has memorized all of the ones Mrs. Lane has taught. I promised myself that I would memorize them with here are "Our Verses"...
