Started Something New

The other week I had posted about me in our Sunday School Class.  I had read something in the lesson that had me going and I just kept it going in class.  Then I felt bad because I talked so much.  Well, you will be happy to know that I chose to be quiet this past Sunday.  I have to admit it was kind of funny.  Tim was teaching class and kept looking in my direction to see if I would say something I think.  I could have opened my mouth and let it fly again but I didn't. 

The week that I talked so much there was a question posed about who had read through the Bible before.  I did ONE time a very long time ago.  Well, since that question was asked I could not get it out of my head.  I decided to take on the challenge that wouldn't let me go.  My iPad has a great App and I was looking through all the parts of the App and there are all kinds of reading plans.  Well, I found one that combines the Old Testament and New Testament together when you do your reading.  I signed in and started.  I have now done 2 days with only 363 days left.  For whatever reason I believe this is what the Lord would have me do right now.  It's amazing!!!!!  I have read Genesis before.  At the same time, I find something new every time I read.  His Word is ALIVE and ACTIVE!!!!!!

One last thing that I wanted to share.  We are approaching Thanksgiving.  It's one of my favorite times of the year.  I love the cooking and company and family and leading right into Christmas.  Here is my thought.......How do you get it across to your children?  We are teaching Kaleb and most of the time I believe he gets it but there are the times when I hear him, I wonder if he is.  There is a blog that my friend Traci writes on sometimes called Tommy Nelson "Raising Faithful Kids" and she wrote on their blog about some ideas for Thanksgiving.  WE WILL BE PARTICIPATING in these!!!!!!  They are awesome!!!!!!  Being thankful is not just a season or a holiday.  It should be 365 days a year!!!!!!!  Go check it out and get some ideas.  You will just love them. 

Praying you have a wonderful afternoon and evening!!!!!!  By the way....have you read through the Bible before?  Have you thought about doing it again?  What are some Thanksgiving ideas that you will be doing or traditions?
