Man, I Hope Someone Reads This!

Another Monday has come close to an end and I haven't been on my blog all week...hubby and the kids are all out right now so I figured I'd give it a fresh start...Our pastor challenged our church family to read thru the bible this year and I've taken him up on it..I am glad to say I have done better at that challenge than the challenge I set for myself as far as writing every day on the blog...(and I think the pastor's challenge is more important, do you?)..but I didn't start in Genesis..our pastor mentioned that for a lot of years he would start out the new year, determined to read through the bible fully and he would be doing great until he would get to 1 Chronicles...and the chapters upon chapters of names...so, to avoid that I decided I would start in 1 Chronicles! And you know what? The chapters of names hasn't bad at all..it has actually made me feel like more a part of the Family. I am getting to know folks that most people today probably skim right over (what I would usually do too). The amazing prayer of Jabez is tucked in Chapter 4, the Tabernacle gatekeepers of Chapter 9 have reminded me that no job is small in the eyes of the Lord, I've gotten a fresh look at the second chance God gave the Israelites to move the Ark His way, and I have seen David whirling and dancing in the streets of Jerusalem (Dancing with the Stars ain't got nothing on him). So in the spirit of this challenge (which btw is never too late to start), I'm placing on the right side bar how to read thru your bible in a year!

I pray you'll join me in this challenge!

You know that is a good idea, I'm still working on having a new years goal I don't really have one yet (YA 3 months in to the year still no goal ROFL) Good luck I'm sure you can do it :)
