First day of Kidz Kamp is over and it was great! Talk about hot, man I am glad I am in an air conditioned room all day, it was brutal out. I have to teach three lessons in a row and I found that quite exhausting. Can't imagine how I did the whole day just four short years ago :)
In addition to today being the first day of Kidz Kamp it is also the first day of another adventure I am embarking on! Months ago my friend Tiff told me about a website called http://momstoolbox.com, I have mentioned it before as a great tool for doing personal devotions. They started a new challenge today and I have signed on. I am going to try and read the Bible in 90 days...start today and finish in October. I've tried to start it up twice and get lost about two weeks in.
This time I signed up on the website and it is really cool. I have a mentor who I can email with and you have to check-in every Monday to let them know your progress. I need this accountability and I am hopeful that I can accomplish this task.
Why read the Bible in 90 days? For me, I think I'm looking forward to the continuity of reading it all at once, rather than just reading here and there, or over a year. I like to look at God's word as the story of Jesus and his sacrifical love for us. The Old Testament may not be specifically about him but the history that is spoken of can still point to my Savior and encourage me in my walk with Him.
So, after a long morning of VBS I now must sit down and read. I'm looking forward to getting started, and seeing what God is going to teach me through this challenge. Anyone want to join me???
