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...
