This is harder that I had thought it would be - I started with a list of about 20 things that i would like to accomplish in the year 2011. However, so many of them did not seem that important when I really thought about them.
Here is my list so far:
#1. Lose 25 pounds.
#2. Plan weekly menus and keep diet within recommended guidelines.
#3. Reestablish lost relationships.
Now the #4!! I have read thru the Bible a number of times - and have done some in depth studies of favorite books in classes with study guides. But, have not done a study like that with just the Bible!! Our Sunday School class is going thru the New Testament and we have a very good teacher - however, we do use a study guide and usually discuss things from that book. (Why do we call these Bible studies, when we are reading what another person thinks about a passage, instead of using just the Scriptures??? To me, these are book studies - not Bible studies!!)
So, #4 will be to choose at least one book and do my own study. Now to decide which book. Or, another idea is the life of Jesus. It is so hard for me to just look into the Bible instead of researching using all the wonderful guides we have today.
Another idea!! I have a 10 year old granddaughter who is having some relational issues. I have thought about doing something like this with her. Perhaps together we could study the life of Jesus. This will take some thought - - - - - - - - - - - -
