Yeah, since I went there yesterday, I figure today is an okay day to take a break from the fashion and DIY and design posts for just a sec. Fashion and design readers…don’t leave me! I’ll be back! Foodies too-stay put! As much of all that is part of my life…this happens to be a daily part. So imma’ talk about it. BOOYAH!
Remember this little challenge which I bestowed upon myself…
“I can totally read the Bible in a Year”.
said written than done. BUT…I’ve totally kept on track. I am actually ahead of where I am because I’ve started doing it my own way. I’m still going according to the plan, but instead of reading Old Test, Psalm and New Test each day, I’ve been reading all of the Old Test on Mon and/or Tues, then the Psalms on Wed and/or Thurs, and then the New Test Fri and Sat. This has been working better for me because…
- Sometimes I get done early and have a day off -woop woop! (Sorry, I guess I shouldn’t be excited to have a day where I don’t read the Bible…but hey-just keepin’ it real. It’s totally nice to have a day off).
- I actually follow the story and understand it better when I don’t switch back and forth every day. Because sometimes the OT is all boring and LISTY-MC’LISTERSON (sorry, also true), so it’s nice to just hear the whole list in one fell-swoop instead of having to re-enter into that torture each morning..eh…heh.heh (picture Peter griffin or the kool aid man slowly tip-toeing out of the room–okay, I’ll link it because it’s awesome and never gets old).
Here’s what I mean:
This is how it’s assigned:
Esther 4-6, Psalm 143, II Corinthians 2
Esther 7-8, Psalm 144, II Corinthians 3
Esther 9-10, Psalm 145, II Corinthians 4
Job 1-3, Psalm 146, II Corinthians 5
Job 4-6, Psalm 147, II Corinthians 6
Job 7-9, Psalm 148, II Corinthians 7
This is what I do instead:
Psalm 143-148 (they’re short)
II Corinthians 2-7
So I read about the same number of chapters and verses, I just don’t read from each-one-each-day. Get it?
So where am I now?
Not bad a’tall.
Stay tuned for the rest of Holy Week to talk about Eastery fun stuff (i.e. what to wear when it’s snowing and cold and gross on Easter…or something along those lines). We’ll see…
