Day 10

So, September 10, 2009.
Day 10.
Job 24-28.
The Message.

I just realized that I obligated myself to post EVERY SINGLE DAY for a YEAR when I really don't have something to say everyday.

In light of this realization, I'll do my best to read everyday and post about it once a week. In the meantime, if I have a good thing to post about, I'll do it!!!

Days 5-7

  1. I can't believe I didn't factor how much I HATE when the Aggies come back into my decision to move....
  2. Little man in the jacked up white Chevy, my Ford is obviously superior at stopping. Your ploy to get me to rear end you was foiled. Because there was no real reason for you to slam on your brakes at the bypass on ramp. Therefore, I am lead to believe you were trying to get me to rear end you.
  3. However, because of the amazing stopping power and great seatbeltage, while keeping me safe and from greater harm, my car inflicted an injury on me. 
  4. And I wish it would bruise because my husband doesn't believe it really hurts.
  5. Milk was $2 a gallon and I bought 4 gallons. You people have no idea how fast Robert drinks milk and, you know, milk is expensive. Plus, you can freeze milk and it keeps longer.
  6. I was hoping to post, with pictorial evidence, my brilliant idea of a less than $10 curtain rod my husband and I spend the weekend crafting. But I have yet to put the final curtain on and there's stuff piled on the floor near there and it just wouldn't have the same effect. 
  7. Plus, getting a picture onto my computer is complicated. We don't have a camera. So,either I use the web cam on my computer, which is difficult to get a good shot with, or I use one of our phones. And I'm just not gonna do that right now.
  8. I'm not so good with making sure I read when it's the weekend... Here's today and the last 2, also.
So, September 5, 2009.
Day 5.
Job 6-9.
The Message.

Oh, wait, I did read that when I was supposed to. Just never posted.

So, September 6, 2009.
Day 6.
Job 10-13.
The Message.

Job is really whiny. I mean, the man's got a reason to be, but it's getting old quick. Maybe God would've answered him if he'd just shut up for a minute. Wait. my toes hurt...

Also, his friends are highly insensitive. I really like when he tells them "Do you think the elderly have a corner on wisdom, that you have to grow old before you understand life?" Next time someone is spouting nonsense and claiming they should know because they've lived longer than me, I'm sending them to Job 12:12. Except only in the Message. Because the other translations say the opposite... Maybe I should stick to my Timothy reference...

And I like this just because it's funny "Your wise saying are knickknack wisdom, good for nothing but gathering dust."

So, September 7, 2009.
Day 7.
Job 14-16.
The Message.

 More whining and insensitivity. Lord, when my friends are going through troubles, please let me be careful what I say! Amen.

Saturday, September 5, 2009

Day 4

 So, September 4, 2009.
Day 4.
Job 1-5.
The Message.

Food for thought...

"His wife said, 'Still holding on to your precious integrity, are you? Curse God and be done with it!'
He told her, 'You're talking like an empty-headed fool. We take the good days from God--why not also the bad days?'"

Wow... Just wow...

Day 3

So, September 3, 2009.
Day 3.
Gen. 8-11.
The Message.

I really have nothing to say. But apparently I started this and feel compelled to keep posting it.

The little girl, E, remembered the turtle says "dude." My life is now complete.

Had a girl's night. It was fun.

Goodnight, all!

Day 2

I'm teaching a little girl in my class who's obsessed with Nemo this: Me: "What does a turtle say?" E: "Duuuude."

It's hilarious. I know.

My momma and I have already corrupted her enough that she says a puppy says "Woof" and then pants. She knows a kitty cat says "Meow" and hisses. A lizard sticks it's tongue out. A horse makes that sound they/we make with blowing air through our lips.

Also, for really no reason at all, today was the longest day in the world and I'm ridiculously tired.

And Even Now, by the amazing Karen Kingsbury,  is such a wonderful book. But then, everything she does is awesome.

So, September 2, 2009.
Day 2.
Gen. 4-7.
The Message.

Genealogies that didn't make me want to already give up my commitment to read all the way through the Bible.

Noah's story. With ark measurements in units I ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND and can kinda picture in my head except it's huger than my mind really thinks about.

Day 1

So BigMama decided on her blog that she was gonna read the Bible, chronologically, in a year with the Message translation. It's a new, fresh approach because reading the same old verses you can quote by heart doesn't always get you to think about what you are reading. She had gone out to buy a Message Bible and linked us to a website that she was following to know what to read each day. I was intrigued by the idea because I once read the Bible in a year but Leviticus boggs you down and the geneologies get tedious and so many of the verses you just know by heart you don't really stop to think about, so reading chornologically was something I've always wanted to do and using the Message just sounded like a good idea.
I knew Robert had a Message/NIV parallel so I didn't go buy anything. I just went in to get it and saw we also have a just plain Message so I decided to read that one. In fact, I decided to count and, if you include just New Testaments and a Children'ts Bible, we have 19 Bibles. I think. I mighta missed one or two. Ridiculous, isn't it? I guess that's what happens when your husband is a Christian Ministry major...

So, September 1, 2009.
Day 1.
Gen. 1-3.
The Message
Yeah, I totally laughed out loud and then felt a little blasphemy when it said “God spoke: Earth! Green up!”
Made me think of like Cowboy Up or something. I'm not exactly sure why, but it hit my funny bone.

On a completely unrelated note, I totally have a flip-flop tan from the playground. It makes me laugh big time.
