Just wondering how your Bible reading is going? I have to admit, I didn't think I would like reading the Bible this way because it seemed as if I was reading 8 books at one time. Well, if you know me at all, I can't do that!!! I'm a one book at a time girl....and even then I have to go back and reread more than once in order to get it. I forget what I've already read! ... or I let my mind start wandering and don't remember what I read! I wonder if I was/am ADD???

I have been pleasantly surprised! I am actually giving more attention to the passages than I have when I read it sequentially! Focusing on only one chapter in that book has caused me to pay closer attention to the contents. I have noticed some vocabulary and facts that I never noticed before. I like this!!!

So, how is it going for you? I'd love to hear from you. Click on "comment" and let me know.

Well, ladies, the holidays are over. They come and go so quickly. I hope each of you have had a blessed season. Mine entailed a nice surprise. For the first time in over 10 years, I was able to spend Christmas Day with my family. There were a lot of surprised faces! That was fun. Life goes by so quickly and we must sieze the moments while we can.

Of course, the snow wasn't fun. It was beautiful, but the driving was terrible. The 1-2 inches they predicted for over the entire weekend came in about the first few hours of the day Saturday. I was quickly reminded why I love the good, old south!! We felt so inadequate and unprepared - no snow brushes, snow boots, or snow tires!! We just had to laugh at it and let others drive us around!! Next time, if there is one, I'll be ready!

Isn't that how the enemy tries to make us feel, though - inadequate and unprepared. That's when we just have to let others "drive us around." We must rely on one another to pull us through those times. Then next time - be ready!

I want to be prepared for this next year. I am looking for many great things. God has given so many promises and I'm not about to let go of even a one. I think this new Bible reading program is wonderful! We are going to grow so much through this...and the discussion class will be such a help for all of us. Then, to add to it, the new study on Revelation. I pray it awakens us and helps us realize not only how close these events are to happening - but what we must do before they do. We have a work.

Let's all be busy about the Father's business. I pray that this year we will win more souls than in all our years combined. We don't have much time. We must seize the moment.

Wishing each of you a blessed and prosperous New Year!
