Kind of hard to find quite time when the house is full of people. I am sharing my bed with my helper and she has her phone set to alarm at sundown and sunrise every day. Which isn't bad because that's when I get up for worship. However, she gets up at that time also and she talks non-stop - all day. I've had to resort to wearing my headphones and ignoring her, it doesn't deter her in any way. Oh well, she has come here to help me for as long as I need help, so how can I complain? I am just so thankful for her help.
It's been about 5 months since my last post; however, I am still on track of reading the Bible in 1 yrs. I'm in Nehemiah with 8 more books of the Old Testament and 3 books left in the New Testament. Sure enjoyed Daniel. Can really relate to him. He had so many flaws and shortcomings, but that demonstrates that God will always forgive and accept us if we repent, no matter secrets we have in our past. He will always forgive and love us no matter our current circumstances.
Finished these three books.
1st (D. Robertson) : The title doesn't sound promising (it looks like some lousy self-help book 😄), but this is very good combination of history, philosophy and psychology. Some very useful tips. Recommendation.
2nd (B. Gracián) : This was a huge surprise, considering it was written in 17th century. 😳 I guess human needs and true values are timeless. Recommendation.
3rd (J. Green) : Collection of essays about us/humans - how beautiful, complicated, dangerous and vulnerable creatures we are. Nothing new or spectacular, just a fun read. I expected more.

You can join me in the challenge! The goal is to read some pages of a book in a week, because many of us say "it's OK I will read it another time" ☺️
Have been struggling for years to get back into reading so did stick with manga one shots and children's books I've been meaning to read for like four straight years but for the first time since about 2016, I completed my yearly reading challenge! Might be time to up the anti and go for 20 🎉
