Alright, it's time for me to fess up and tell you where I've been. I have let this blog fall by the wayside ever since I started this little thing called grad school. Yikes. I was afraid that my graduate studies would get in the way, but saying it got in the way is an understatement. It has consumed most of my non-working time. This post is being written during my first break from school -- I have about three and a half weeks between my fall and spring semester.
I have not quit reading the bible, I just had to give myself permission to quit writing about it. For awhile I was doing neither -- not reading, and not writing -- and feeling mighty guilty about it. I realized that it was better to keep reading and not writing than it was to not do either. That being said, I haven't been that faithful to my daily studies.
It's almost a new year, and with that new year comes the realization that it's been a year since I set this blog up and made the original commitment. My commitment still stands in that I WILL read through the entire bible and I WILL write about the entire thing, it just won't be in a year's time. I will try to continue to get posts out, and will commit to doing better than I have in these previous few months. I am also going to break the posts down further -- currently each post contains two readings, in the future they will contain one. Anything I can do to keep myself reading, and writing when I can.
Please know that I haven't given up on this blog, and that I will never ever give up my faith or my commitment to study the word of God in its entirety. May you all have a blessed 2013!
