I was reading over my blog this morning and I realised something.
It has been hijacked by my children!
Now, don’t get me wrong…of course I love my beautiful daughters. Of course I am in wonder and awe at the achievements of their young lives.
However, there is another Me.
The Other Me likes getting dressed in nice ironed clothes that match, putting on makeup and doing things like having conversations in tones other than ‘cutesy wutesy’. The Other Me was lucky enough to find a wonderful man who married me and enjoys doing many of the things the Other Me likes doing. Some of these things include: reading, creative writing, cooking, listening to music, photography, studying/discussing theology, and doing various crafts. The Other Me is organised and would never be caught without her Filofax (the one she spent ages choosing to reflect her personality). The Other Me enjoys having dinner in restaurants and going to the movies. The Other Me loves to be able to soak in the atmosphere in church and pray quietly with her eyes closed. The Other Me can hold a conversation about current events which doesn’t include topics like ‘who pulled whose hair’ and ‘how much so-and-so ate today’. The Other Me is ON TIME!
Both me and the Other Me enjoy reading blogs and I have found myself saying a little too frequently, ‘Oh, that sounds interesting. I wish I could do that.’ One of these interesting things I came across on one of those blogs is a reading challenge. Specifically, a Bible reading challenge. I did a little searching around the dot com and there are several versions of the Bible Reading Challenge. Some give you a schedule of chapters to read. Some give you a time frame in which to read the bible.
The one that I have decided to do is: Read the bible for 30 minutes per day and see how long it takes to get through the entire book.
So, today starts my Bible Reading Challenge.
I will post my progress on here and any thoughts I encounter along the way.
If you would like to join me in this challenge, please let me know in the comments. It would be great to have others to share this with!
Here’s to Me and the Other Me….may they meet again soon.
