New Year, New Meaning

2015.  Its really hard to believe its 2015 already, isn't it?  Time seems like it just flies.  And time has a way of getting away from us.  From me.

Having a very active toddler and being a stay at home mom, some people would think I have all the time in the world.  Not true.  While yes, I'm not bound to a job that takes me away from my home or my family, I have a job at home that is never-ending.  Dishes, laundry, cooking, house work, toddler to teach/raise/discipline/keep safe/guide, husband to tend to as well. 

Sometimes it's hard to keep it all in focus.  Its hard to make time to do the things just for me.  Like read my Bible.  Like have time for Bible study.  Time for things for 'me'. 

After coming across a picture on Facebook (yup, you read right!) of a Bible that belonged to Jessa Duggar-Sewald (from 19 Kids and Counting in case you don't follow, she just got married to Ben Sewald in November), I was very intrigued.  It was a Bible I had never quite seen before.  It was just set up differently, same format (King James Version which is the only type I'll have in my home), but different.  I did some research and found it was a Hebrew-Greek Study Bible, KJV. 

I had never heard of this Bible before!  It was something that just 'stuck' in my head.  After Damon got his new Bible for Christmas, I decided maybe it was time that I got myself a new Bible as well.  I got to thinking about it, and I had actually never purchased my own Bible before.  They have all been given to me as gifts.  Loved them all, but it was time for something that's just 'mine'.

I received it in the mail this week and already am loving it.  I also bought a Bible devotion/journal and I hope to really get into God's word and have Him open my eyes up.  I hope to learn more.  I hope to get stronger. 

What Bible do you read regularly and do you have a devotion you follow?  Care to share?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. I've not heard of that one! I use a NKJV (sometimes NIV). A couple of days ago I purchased "The Power of a Praying Wife" devotional. It's been great so far. :)


I love hearing your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
