New Year

I've been slacking off on this blog - I know that all 3 of my followers are certainly suffering from Party of 5 Withdrawal. It's not for lack of trying. I log in at least every other day, sit here staring at my screen and wait for inspiration to hit me. Inspiration seems to be fleeting at the moment.

I know better than to make a New Year's resolution to "blog more"...I don't do resolutions. I don't know if it's that I just don't have the commitment level, or if it's too much pressure...I have NEVER been able to keep a resolution.

One that always creeps into my head at the beginning of the new year, is to pick up my bible more. Read that book! But after years of failed resolutions, the thought of looking at the book of Genesis...AGAIN...is just not very appealing. I've tried the chronological method too. But the book of Job and I have spent so much time together in past years, quite honestly I have no desire to start there either. After that, it just seems overwhelming to me to just "pick a spot" and start reading. I know it shouldn't be, but I want this to be a worthwhile endeavor and not a chore.

Yesterday I had passed along to me a 52 week Bible reading plan. I literally groaned inwardly at first. Oh look...ANOTHER reading plan that I can fail miserably at. But when I actually looked closer at this one, it got my attention. This one is split up, yes, 52 weeks - 7 days reading in each week. But each day is from a different section of the Bible!

Sundays - Epistles
Mondays - Law
Tuesday - History
Wednesday - Psalms
Thursday - Poetry
Friday - Prophecy
Saturday - Gospels

This just may have enough variation to keep my short attention span from flying out the window! Granted, I'm already a week behind...but give me a break! I just got it yesterday! Now if you'll excuse me, I have some reading to do....
