I will let this be my thank you note to everyone who has been following my blog and praying for me and encouraging me. Thank you so much!
I didn't finish reading in three months. New Year's Eve came and went and I just looked at my Bible as it sat s on the corner of my kitchen table. My heart felt heavy but I was also preoccupied with cooking our New Year's Eve seafood FEAST.

Yes, those who know me personally, know I was floating on cloud 9. But shamefully, I made sure I took the time to prepare all of my heart's desires for the evening when I could have changed the menu or solicited help so that I could've continued reading the Bible and finished on schedule.
I can make all kinds of excuses about distractions, guests, and other things, but the bottom line is you always have a choice in life. I chose to not finish the Bible in virtually 90 days. I am not proud of that. I am proud that I finished. Actually in the video I said I finished in 124 days but actually it was 104. Bad nerves equals bad math. :)
The biggest blessing I have received out of this journey was the realization that God still sees me. He still wants me. Now that I realize I have been redeemed I don't want to forsake that. I want to live for it. If my brother jumped in front of a bullet to save my life. I would say that I was forever indebted to him. In the chance the bullet didn't fatally wound him, I probably would live my life trying to thank him. If I would do that for my earthly brother, why shouldn't I fully live for Christ who died for me and The Heavenly Father God who sent Him and the Holy Spirit who continuously works in my life and intercedes on my behalf. I will no longer take His love for granted because He sent His only son to pay the ultimate price for me.
God Bless EVERY single one of you and your families and the works of your hands. May God continue to reveal Himself to you and in you. Remember to pray for people, it is the best gift you can give.
A sinner whose flesh is dying, so her spirit can rise and live in Christ.
