Monday night I really wanted to do some "pleasure" reading. A book, a magazine, whatever. Actually, I've been wanting some time to just read for quite awhile now. I got home fairly early from work (9:30 pm), but I was just so tired that I ended up going to bed after talking to Tim and some computer time.
Tuesday morning the boys came in and woke me up shortly after 6:00. I laid there for awhile and then I decided that I would look at a magazine while they were playing. As I glanced at Family Circle, Tyler came over and said "Mommy, you need to read your Bible". Ouch! He was right, and so that is what I did.
"Thank you God that my children have seen me read the Bible in the morning and that they expect that from me. I should expect that out of me too."
I have been trying to read through the Bible in a year. I am about 2 weeks behind on my Old Testament section (Kings and Chronicles aren't my thing, but some good books like Esther are coming up). I am up to date on my New Testament reading and am in the book of John.
