So, as I mentioned previously, my New Year's resolution was to read the Bible in a year with my home church in California. I am proud to say that, so far, I have stayed caught up with the readings and I finished the first book of the Bible on schedule today! Genesis is full of crazy things, but the one thing that stuck with me through the entire book is the fact that God always keeps His promises. He will never let me down, and that is reassuring in a world where people often disappoint. God is there and He has a plan for my life better than anything I could ever imagine. I'm glad that I'm finally committing to reading the Bible in a year and I can't wait to see what God has in store for me on this journey. One book down, sixty-five to go!

P.S. It's not to late to start this journey! If you're interested in reading through the Bible in a year, the reading plan I am following can be found here. Happy reading!

In Summary

Wow. I meant to post this much sooner, but time has a way of getting away from me. I have one more week of winter break. I just called SouthWest to list my non-revenue stand-by travel for Sunday. I also just ordered my textbooks for the semester. I've been keeping pretty busy over the last few days. The weather is gorgeous, so I've been taking my mom's dogs out for runs every single day. It's going to be hard to go back to cold weather. So far, I've kept up with the one resolution I made this year. I decided to read my Bible cover to cover this year. I've never done it before and I'm really looking forward to it. The rest of my home church is doing it too, so each sermon on the weekend will be related to the reading from that week, which helps because I am now encouraged to stay caught up on the reading. My church also made journals available for purchase that has a page for every day with that day's readings posted. I'm only nine days in, but I'm really optimistic about staying caught up. I think I can do it. For the rest of the week, I have some housekeeping stuff to get done before I go back to school, but I'm also going to try and enjoy the remainder of my time off as much as possible.
