If At First You Don't Succeed--Blogging Through the Bible in 90 Days

You may remember that last year I participated in the Bible-in-90-Days challenge, sponsored by Amy at Mom's Toolbox. Unfortunately I didn't complete the challenge, much to my disappointment.

Why not? Some of it was life, some of it was myself. I never forgot how blessed I was by what I did read, and what a great sense of accomplishment I felt as I checked off each day's reading on my Bible-in-90-Days bookmark. And even though I've read most, if not all of the Bible before, I've never read it straight through cover-to-cover, nor that quickly so as to retain a sense of the overall whole like I did when I read along with the Bible-in-90-Days program.

So, I'm giving it another go.

I had a restless night last night, and ended up getting up about 4:00 a.m. this morning, so I wouldn't wake my husband with all of my tossing and turning. Wrapping up in my flannel housecoat, I grabbed my current "reading" Bible, a Holman Christian Standard, and settled onto the sofa in our front bedroom--it's the office/library/reading/whatever room--and opened to Genesis 1:1.

"In the beginning...", what promise that holds!

We're in a new year, and a new decade--who knows how everything will turn out? I'm looking forward to finding out.

And meanwhile, back to Genesis...

Until next time...

    BTW, my favorite way to read is snuggled in my warm robe. :)
