Bible Reading Update

Today is the first Bible reading update for 2015. During the month of December I took a long break. Unfortunately the break began with a fourteen day illness.
The last Bible reading update posted was on November 13, 2014.
When a new year begins and I start a new round of reading through the Bible I'm excited. The excitement does not wane through the year because I love God's Word. Most days I read the Bible. Sometimes a brief section is read and sometimes it's a large chunk. I do not read the Bible by following a particular plan. I don't read from Genesis straight through to Revelation. Early in the year the books of Job, Ezekiel, Lamentations, Leviticus, Song of Solomon are read. Reading these books later in the year especially during the holiday season can be tough. I take notes while reading the Bible---including writing in the margins of the pages. I have 2 new Bibles, both ESV translations. One is portable, easy to carry, a beautiful burgundy color of imitation leather. The 2nd Bible is a Journaling Bible. I've fallen in love with art journaling. If you are interested Pinterest, Iconosquare/Instagram, and Facebook have groups about art journaling/Bible journaling.
I am no longer linked to Facebook. When a review is posted it will not post on Facebook. I have deleted the Networked Blog, Bloglovin, and Booklike accounts. I still have a presence on Google+, Twitter, and Goodreads.

Since January 1, the following Scriptures have been read:
Genesis chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24.
