I can't believe it's all over! It always seems like the Christmas season goes by so fast. Maybe it's because everything gets so busy, but whatever the case, it's all a done deal. Of course, it was a great Christmas -- other than sleeping on the floor of my mother-in-law's house because our air mattress sprung a leak. The girls had a great time ripping open presents, and I am happy to report that they need no new toys for the rest of their life! Their favorite so far is a toy kitchen with fake food and lots of little pots and pans just like mom's.

Now it's on to a new year! I don't really make "resolutions", I guess. But I do like to set goals for myself for the new year. This year I am doing the one year Bible reading program. All my life I have been going to church, but I have never once read the entire Bible in which I profess such strong faith. With some dedication I intend to change that this year. Besides, my dear husband has done it twice, and I have to admit the competitive spirit in me needs to catch up. :)

Well, it's back to the grind tomorrow. I suppose I better get some sleep so I can get up at 5:30 for some reading!

I'm doing the One-Year Bible, too!

I did it two years ago, and read all year and then got stuck on December 3...can you believe it?

So, it's all the way this year. I'm already behind; I read only Jan. 1 last night.

Hope you're successful! I'll keep checking! : )

OH Good!!!!! Maybe you can help keep me accountable! On more than one occasion I need a swift kick in the pants! :)

That would be a total bummer getting stuck so close to the end! Do you usually read in the mornings or evenings?

Kristen said...

I read at night. Bedtime story!

So, how about that Noah, eh?

Sarah said...

you know, maybe I knew at one time, but I had no idea that Noah lived to be so OLD! I can't even begin to imagine what some one who was 601 would even look like, much less build and Ark?!

Hey, I found this!

I don't know that I'll give them my e-mail (honestly, I'm afraid of what I'd receive), but maybe we can both link to it!

The pics are cool...and if one day you forget to read, why...there is is, right there online for ya! Ha!
