The Sunday Salon

Good Sunday Morning to you and Happy Father's Day!
Recent photographs of my dad and husband in honor of them.

In the past week I finished reading Mark in the NASB. This was the 2nd time this year to read Mark.
I also finished reading Romans in the Common English Bible. This was the 6th time to read Romans. This year I am reading Romans in 10 different translations, spread out over 10 months, 1 translation per month.
The Common English Bible has been available in the New Testament since 2010. The entire Bible--OT and NT will be available July 2011.
The Common English Bible is approachable, easy to read, and a modern translation for reader's that may not have been interested in reading the Bible before.
At their website you can download Genesis for free. 
An example from Romans 8:37-39 Common English Bible
"But in all these things we win a sweeping victory through the one who loved us. I'm convinced that nothing can separate us from God's love in Christ Jesus our Lord: not death or life, not angels or rulers, not present things or future things, not powers or height or depth, or any other thing that is created."

Also.......maybe you remember I am memorizing 2 Scripture per month along with Beth Moore and about 2,712 other women. Her inspiration and encouragement to memorize Scripture is such a blessing!
From the 1-15 of this month I memorized,
"For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 NIV
For the 16-30 of this month,
"Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account." Hebrews 4:13 NIV
We are 1/2 the way through in the year in memorizing Scripture, 6 more months to go!

Are you reading your Bible?
