Carriers of Faith - February

Our February post for the Carriers of Faith on SCS is a challenge from our hostess, Barb!  The verse she gave us was this....

Colossians PBJstories.etsy.com

The challenge she gave us was to think of what we work hard at , but cheerfully.  Maybe something we do for a career, want to be when we 'grow up' or what we love to do in life.  

There are so many things I could expand upon for this challenge!  I decided to go with something that I am working on, how I want to be when I 'grow up' all while doing and using something I love.  That's a tall order! 

I am currently 'working on' learning the Bible better.  I have read through it once and now I am working on reading a daily chronological version.   The daily version is about 3,200 pages long, which is about 9 pages per day.  Totally doable! 

When I 'grow up' I hope to have a better understanding and recall of verses and such.  I just have this little inkling when it all comes down, that saying I did not have enough time to learn isn't going to cut it - but I did read so and so's latest novel....

'Doing' something I love, is to read.  All is good when I am doing so!  Which ties into 'using something that I love' and that is my Kindle Paperwhite.  

I am so in love with that Paperwhite!  Oh my goodness!!!  I can appreciate and at times use to read my iPad, iPhone, Kindle app on the computer, but nothing compares to the Paperwhite.  I like a dedicated reader.  The down lighting is so easy on the eyes and you can read for so long without eyestrain. It is lightweight and portable. I can read with no glare in any lighting.  The mere fact that I do not have to lug around that 3,200 page book is glory enough! 

You should have arrived here from Carol's blog.   Your next stop is, Shelly.  I cannot wait to see what the rest of the girls have in store for us this month.  The entire blog list is on the right sidebar.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

Well good for you, Tami! What a wonderful commitment to give yourself the goal of bible reading. I love this scripture and it's a great book in the bible to work through ~ Apostle Paul was a wise man :) I miss my Kindle but do have the ipad reader - old school me just prefers the tactile feel of a good old fashioned book :) I love that you love your KINDLE and use it so refreshingly!

Blessings to you, COF sistah!

Tami, your personal goal is commendable and one that will benefit you as you progress. Kudos to you!

And I love seeing your KindleWhite!

Guess what Tami??!! I'm doing it too!!! :) Even doing the Chronological version too! I was excited about that - because it really puts everything into a timely perspective.

Ok, now I'm wanting a Kindle! LOL!! But I do still love the feel of that old paper and cover...know what I mean?

Love your post and it's neat to know that someone else is reading through too. :)

Tami--what a wonderful post and a great goal that you have. Good Luck in attaining it!

And, I am sure the Kindle will help you to achieve it--flexibility and the ability to read anywhere! Maybe even on the beach in Hawaii in the future....

What a great post Tami and a very tall order..like you said though doable. I love that you are challenging yourself to do this and I agree, I don't think not having time to learn will not be an acceptable excuse...Great post my sweet friend...♥
