A new month, a new class, a new mat

February is here and it's time to change out the decor for Valentine's Day. I have my hearts all over the place.

Our pastor started a Bible study for 2012 called the 3x5 club. We are reading the entire Bible in a year and doing it in order from Genesis to Revelation. We read 3 chapters everyday, except Sunday when we read 5 chapters. I did not know when I started if I would be able to stick with it, but so far it has not been a problem. I sometimes read ahead just in case I have a busy day and can't get to it. Genesis has always been one of my favorite books as there is so much to read about. We are now in the middle of Leviticus which is very tedious reading. It is a wonder to me that the church continued after God gave so much direction. I probably would not have been industrious or obedient enough to follow all his instructions. Of course, God probably would have zapped me like he did Aaron's sons. Our pastor seems to love to teach and really can bring some great insight into our reading. He has only been with us for 7 months and already has made a big difference.

My husband just went out a bought me a new plastic mat to go under my sewing chair. The old one had developed divots where the chair casters sat and the mat had cracked and pieces of the plastic had popped out making it nearly impossible to roll the chair. I can't wait to go try out the new mat and do some swirlies with my chair!! Yahoo!


  1. Seems you had a photo with your post, but no matter what I do it won't load. Anyway, don't get too out of control on your new mat! : )
    Good luck with Leviticus--it has been a long time since I have just read straight through--I like studying subjects.

  2. That is fantastic that you are reading through the Bible. Leviticus is a tedious book, but still pretty fascinating in some chapters. I wish more folks would read through the whole Bible from start to finish, then maybe more people would understand God's grace a little more. How nice that your pastor is having you all do this. Good for him. It's my favorite Book in all the world :)

  3. Great idea from your pastor. These days I don't hear of them doing that much anymore, reading through the Bible.
    Good job!
    I am sure you will enjoy not getting stuck on your mat now. :)
