i started reading the Bible again.  at our yardsale this summer, a friend gave me the "one year bible".  it's a bible that is formatted in days so that you read a little/lot of old testament and a little new testament with a chapter (or so) of psalms and a verse in proverbs each day.  since i started in august (or whenever it was that i started) i didn't start in genesis, like i've always tried to do before.  starting in genesis is so repetitive since i've tried that so many times.  i always get tuckered out at approximately the same area... book... chapter... page... verse... ok, maybe the same word!  (begat)  anyway!  so, i like this new approach and i like that i didn't start on jan. 1st.  thanks friend!
well, starting a couple weeks ago, i began to falter in my readings.  i would sleep in and forget, or just forget.  i don't know why because i was really enjoying being in His Word and picking up on a lost habit that is so freakin' rewarding it's stupid not to do!!!  i KNOW this.  i KNOW that when i was/am reading His Word daily i feel better, i act better, i probably even smell better.  but i'm struggling with it again. 
because of this struggle, i'm also struggling in other areas.  please pray for my dilligence in being in a daily habit of prayer and devotion. 
also pray that i have the fortitude to make sure and do what is best for me and my family BEFORE i get on this stupid computer each day!  i mean, really.  seriously.  is fortitude the right word here???  well, whatever.
i'm convicted.  i'll go read and study.  <3
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
