I just had the pleasure of reading the first page of a brand new blog by long-time commenter 4gazpacho where she has begun blogging about bipolar disorder. When she first came here to comment, she said she was a blogger and reviewed books on her blog but was wondering about branching out and writing about bipolar. I am so glad to see she has taken that step and begun to tell her story. Stop by and visit http://www.workingthroughbipolar.wordpress.com.
As for me, it’s after 9:30 and I just woke up for the second time. I think I am definitely falling out of the manic episode. That’s a good thing. But hopefully I won’t fall into a depressive one in the process. We’re keeping tabs on everything so I should be safe and catch anything before it starts.
I’ve taken a reading-through-the-Bible-in-a-year challenge using The One-Year Bible. I’m where Isaac has just taken Rebekah to wife in the Old Testament and just finished the Sermon on the mount in the New Testament. I did read the Bible through a devotional book last year but this is the first time I have seriously taken on reading the Bible itself in a long, long time. I’m reading The New Living Translation, which makes it almost like reading a novel. I don’t think it skips verses, but it seems there aren’t nearly as many boring parts as when I last tried to read the Old Testament. I am looking forward to what God has in store for me reading his word seriously this year. Pray for me to know God in a new way during this journey,
