What I'm doing with my time these days

That is a good question!  I have been reading!

And reading................and reading......................and reading some more.

You may ask 'what is it that has me so fascinated?'  It is God's Word, the Bible.  I've committed myself to read the entire thing from start to finish by the end of the year.  I started the last week of November and am now at the beginning of Psalms.

I have to say that I'm really enjoying it.  I've tried this before and always get stuck in Chronicles or Job or something.  But this time, I'm using The Message translation (which is more of a paraphrase done from the original languages).  It's a very readable version, written more like we speak to one another today.  I find that there is a very different dynamic when I read the whole thing more quickly.  It's like I get a more complete picture, imagine that?!

May I suggest you give it a try too.  See if you can read it like you would a novel, maybe an hour at a time out of modern translation.  Let me know how it goes with you.


  1. You can do it! Your off to a good start. Enjoy!

  2. My aunt told me I should try it and get through the struggles I have been going through. I might after reading this I will still think about giving it a go .. very inspired to do so


I really enjoy your feedback, so thanks a bundle for taking the time to leave it.
