Bible in 90 Days


I might be a little crazy, but I'm doing it. Reading the entire bible in 90 days. Yes, I am a homeschooling mom of three and attempting to read the entire bible in 90 DAYS. I felt the Lord prompting me to spend more time with him and focus on what matters. I am hoping to see just how much time in my day is wasted by other "stuff" as well. Whew! Today was the first day and I read from Genesis 1:1 to Genesis 16:16. It worked out really well today to do it while I had all the kids in rest time. The house was actually quiet. Well, except for when Reece insisted on going #2 in my bathroom. Nothing like hearing that while reading about Noah and the flood! ha ha ha!

I have read Genesis a million times. Well, maybe not a million, but a lot. And today I had quite a few "new" finds. It was so interesting to just read. Not take a million notes, look in commentaries, check references.... just read. Those things aren't bad. I just tend to complicate things sometimes and this keeps me focused.

So here is some tidbits from today....

1. "no suitable helper was found" for some reason it made me chuckle. Did Adam try a badger, eagle, lion to help him with his chores? He was out looking. And boy did he get something awesome when GOD gave it to him. Hmmmmm........

2. "sound of the Lord" I wonder what this is....a swoosh, a gentle rustling of trees, bells, hoping I get to hear this some day

3. animals and people were originally VEGETARIAN and not until NOAH did they eat meat.... interesting......

None of these observations of life changing, theological, philosophical, or even that interesting to other people. But today they just struck me.
