Progress Check

I'm monumentally behind, although I did manage to finish off Genesis and Exodus so far this weekend. What can I say, sometimes life doesn't quite cooperate, as See-Through referenced back at the beginning. A friend of mine today suggested that I just skip through to where the others are, but then I'd never come back to this. Because of everything, though, I haven't even been following the blog .... but I'm assuming all sorts of cool stuff has been shared.

Just wondering, though ..... where is everyone? So I have some sense of a ballpark of where "the crew" is for catching up purposes. So .... progress check in the comments?

Thanks,
Steph

To make you feel better, I'm just finishing Genesis. :)

I, too, considered just jumping ahead to where the rest are, but the goal here is not to "get to the end" but to read the book. Read it, I will.

Steph and Kevin,

I'd say DON'T skip!

I am so so glad I trudged through to the bitter end of the Torah. It is the foundation of all that comes after.

And I'd say don't feel you can't comment about where you are. It isn't so long ago that we couldn't relate to what you are saying, LOL!

The going has gotten easier now that I am in the histories. It is much more narrative. So hang in there!

Love,
Rachel

Just got to the end of Deut, which I rather enjoyed in a strange sort of way...I am way off managing to read my chunk every day, so will be further behind again by the end of the week, but might somewhere along the line do 2 days in 1 (that's how i've kept even vaguely up with myself.
Not sure it's having any great spiritual impact, but the point was to do it,- and I'm open to things changing as I go along.
Not really blogging, though, as nothing much is happening for me.a

I enjoyed Deuteronomy too. It seemed more personal, and I saw a some different aspects of God than what is revealed in the previous books.

At one point I caught up even though I started late, but then got behind again.

Now I am about half way through Joshua.

And I agree with Rachel that if you want to comment on something...it is still very fresh in our minds.

Be blessed and encouraged, all of you!

This is NOT a competition Steph. It's a support network. Some had a rougher start than others. Others of us will need our days of grace later. (of that I am sure)

Here at the seminary - the pcs are closed down at 9.45pm! there's no tv, no radio, I don't have a walkman or mp3, and know no Russian so can't chat with my room mates (our room actually is quite silent) - so I read and study for exams.

For me Sundays are the hardest as church and fellowship take most time. I tend to read more on Mondays. Today I have only read two chapters. (before my exam)

When I get off of the PC I'll read the rest. And then eat a snack.

You should choose how you handle it but I had a real sense of achievement having read all of the Torah in two weeks - and got a greater understanding. Remembr though that they were in the desert for 40 years - so there's nothing magical about 90 days :)

bless you for reading, God asks us to perservere in a lot of thigns and in different ways.

You started late. So what? it's how we finish that matters :)

We've done well - and supported each other in prayer and funny questions (and answers) that's helped me a lot too.

But we do not compete! you hear me? We are in this TOGETHER as eija said - 90 days might end up 100. so what!
(grin)

I am up to 1 Samuel and am trying to get a couple of days ahead because I am going to a camp soon and mightn't have much spare time.

I look foward each day to doing the assigned chapters.

Last night I just finished reading the Samson story. Wasn't supposed to go that far, but just couldn't put it down in the middle of it :D

And yes, I'm with Lorna. Steph, you just hang in there! Do what you can, and don't worry about the rest. God loves you anyway!
