I am moving along, slightly ahead of plan – I will finish Jeremiah this weekend (I am sorry but I have a big picture of a bullfrog in my mind as I read this book). This is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have let go of trying to remember and understand all the different facts and thoughts. There is no final exam upon completion. Rather, I try to be in the moment and appreciate the words as I move forward. It may sound trite, but I am feeling like a much more complete human being, I truly appreciate the fulfilling feeling that reading the Bible is providing me. It’s the old situation where you don’t know what you don’t know.
Our little cottage at the shore has a swing on the open porch where you can see the water at the end of our street. My favorite time is getting up first on Saturday and Sunday and sitting on the swing with my cup of coffee and Bible. I almost get disappointed when my boys (all 3 of them) start to stir and it is time to put my reading down and begin the day’s activities. This is a summer I will always cherish, for many many reasons.
