Scripture to Memorize #2 of 24 & Geography Quiz

Ok... This is the scripture I'm working on for the last half of January. I think I have my other one memorized pretty good. Thanks to a song I made up in my head. Don't worry I'll spare you the vocals.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure, then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3:17 (NIV)

How are you with World Geography? I just did this drag and drop map of the Middle East to see if I could place the countries in the correct place. Let's just say....I need to study before I take this one again. It doesn't keep score, but I figured out pretty quick how unknowledgeable (dumb) I am in trying to place some of these countries.

Go check it out and let me know how you did.

I am fairly familiar with the Middle East as my father worked in Iraq and I would fly out in the summer holidays. I have been to Lebanon, Jordan and Kuwait but I have not been to Israel.

Here is a link to posts about Iraq if you are interested

There are three links to my old Wordpress blog with stories from Iraq you might like.

OH dear! World geography? I don't think I should even attempt at attempting to know it! LOL!

That's another something that my husband is VERY good at! He will look at a speck on the map, and he'll say some name of an island no one has ever heard about before!

Thank you for posting these scripture memorization thingies. :) I think it's very kind of you to give out a scripture for memorization, for everyone. :)

Well, considering I lived in Turkmenistan for two years, and my brother lives in Senegal (right below Mauritania), you would think I could have done a little better.

I did pretty good with the middle east. Africa was more click and guess.

I'm pretty good with World Geography, and the Middle East is probably one of the areas that I'm best at. Once you learn about these countries, it's easy to remember where they are because you have the context of them.
