Will your local orchestra soon be playing the Roger Federer Overture?

Okay, maybe it lacks the thrill factor of shooting an apple off your son’s head with a bow and arrow, but Roger Federer’s stunt is still pretty impressive. To be honest, I’m usually not a big fan of stunts or “stupid human tricks.”  Though some might think my Bible-In-A-Month Challenge falls into this kind of […]

P.S.: Bible-in-a-month challenge, 29 of 30

December 31, 2009

Day 31 Today is the day after I completed my challenge. Being a day off, I slept in, and had a relaxing breakfast with my family.  Rather than the fact-paced two hours of reading I have done each day for the past month, I brought everyone together in the living room for some “quiet time.”  […]

Day 30 — 1 John 2:12-Revelation 21:21 I did it.  1094 pages, 66 books, two testaments, one Bible … all in the month of December. While I’m stoked about achieving my goal, I’m mindful that the Lord has helped me all along the way.  Left to myself, I would have talked myself out of the […]

Day 27 — Romans 9:33-Philippians 3:21 I’ve found three things to be indispensable as I’ve attempted to read the Bible for two hours each morning: bright light, a hard chair, and a business card. Soft lighting just won’t cut it at 5:30 am.  I’d be nodding off in no time.  So the bright light of […]

Day 26 — Acts 2:35-Romans 9:33 Sundays are kind of hard.  It’s your day off right?  A day to chill … take it easy? Not during my challenge.  After attending our Sunday church service, I came home and read my 37 pages.  The more I think about it, this undertaking isn’t so much about a […]

Day 25 — Luke 17:26-Acts 2:34 Yesterday was the first day in the month of December that I didn’t read for at least two hours.  It was a planned day off (for Christmas) that I prepared for by putting in some additional reading earlier in month. Would the day off affect my momentum?  Would interrupting […]

Day 23 — Mark 6:32-Luke 17:24 It’s Christmas Eve Day. Time is short, and I’m off the challenge for the day tomorrow in honor of Christmas.  I banked a day’s worth of reading a couple of weeks ago, so I won’t get behind in my goal to read through the Bible in the month of […]

Day 22 — Matthew 1:26-Mark 6:31 First full day in the New Testament.  Loving it. What I’m not loving is the sinus issues which are afflicting me today.  Hopefully, I won’t be joining Rudolf in having a red nose for Christmas.

Day 21 — Amos 6:8-Matthew 1:25 It’s been three weeks since I started my quest to read the Bible in the month of December, and I just completed the Old Testament.  As it turns out, I’ll be working through the Gospels in the next few days.  What a terrific preview to Christmas this Friday!
