I began January 1, not January 3 like the other moms doing this challenge via MomsToolbox.com, but I am already behind. I am not concerned, but I am behind. I read ahead on the plane ride down to Disney World, but just like I expected, I got behind while on vacation. But, it's ok. I am slowly catching up, and I think that in three or four more days I will be back on track. I have 3 chapters to go to be finished with Day 11, and I am supposed to be on Day 15. Ever since we have been home from Disney World (Wednesday afternoon), Leah and Sam have had the flu, and I have spent A LOT of time on the couch or in the bed in between them. I have taken advantage of this time to read, read, read my Bible--that is how I have been catching up.
So I want to encourage you if you are doing the 90 Day Challenge too. If you get behind, don't throw in the towel. Persevere! That is my focus word for this year, and I am already putting it to good use. (And I hope that by the end of the year I can spell it without using spell check--that is a tricky word!)
I have found that by reading large portions of Scripture in one sitting, the content of the chapters is actually sticking with me throughout the day. I think about what I have read frequently, because the Scriptures are just on my mind. What a huge benefit.
I probably won't blog much about this resolution, except to tell you when I complete it, but for today I wanted to encourage you to persevere if the 90 Day Challenge is your goal too.
