Today I started my own summer reading program. As much as I love summer, I sometimes have a hard time when I’m not running 16 different directions, trying to keep up with with sports, homeschool activities, Biblestudies, and all the other fun stuff that goes on during the school year. But seriously, after a busy home school year you would think I would be thrilled for the break – and I am, but I am such a control freak that when I have free time I don’t know what to do with myself. If I actually just relax, I feel guilty. Weird, huh? So besides the regular summer activities such as beach days and bbq’s, and the summer projects such as cleaning out the school cabinets and closets, I have decided to start a summer reading program.
Today was my first day. I plan to read through the Psalms this summer. Not a huge stretch, I know. There are 150 Psalms and like 90 more days of summer, but this gives me focus and for me that is good. Today I read Psalms 1 – 5. Piece of cake, but so encouraging- you should join me.
Psalm 3:3-4 says, “But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To The Lord I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill.”
Psalm 5:3 says, “In the morning O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”
Have a great day!
