I went ahead and ripped through the rest of Zechariah and Malachi. Hard to believe we knocked out that much reading in 67 days! Quite an accomplishment with everything else going on in life. Stay faithful friends and saints. The riches of reading all of God’s words far outweigh any knowledge and satisfaction gained from watching Celebrity Apprentice.
Just a few books to highlight and we are moving on to the New Testament~~

Who says there isn’t anything good in the last twelve books of the Old Testament? It is packed full of many verses we see on calendars, daily scripture flip charts, and encouraging verses of the day.

She reads in the car (not driving), during TV commercials, in bed, at work on breaks, everywhere she can. Others around her are getting an earful on what it is we are all about. You go girl!

Good Monday Friends~
I hope your weekend was what you needed. Happy Presidents Day! What a great country we live in. Please continue to pray for all that happens in our nation as we continue to shine brightly in our generation.

Some of the other prophets can lean the judgment way a bit too much leaving little room for our contemporary readers to be encouraged. Isaiah is so chock full of encouraging scripture. As I read today, so many of them really spoke to me. Continue reading
