Bible in 90 Days Update-Day 21

It is day 21 of 90 in the Bible in 90 Days program.  We are in 2 Samuel now, and I have  to say I am really enjoying this! Originally I did not think it would be going this well.  I thought it may be too much reading per day to get much out of it, but I'm learning SO MUCH, and remembering so much!  I've never read through the entire bible, and it feels great to be doing it, something I've wanted to do but never stuck with.  Before starting the 90 days, I figured I would get into a routine with a time of day that I always did my reading; that hasn't happened.  I'm still reading whenever I get the chance, pretty much any time of day, but usually in the evening after my hubby has come home and dinner is cleaned up. I have found, however, that I am not getting much other reading done, either fiction or non-fiction, except the few pages I try to read in bed before I fall asleep.  But, not reading my other books for 90 days is completely fine with me to accomplish this goal! I can already tell that I will be getting so much more out of sermons and bible studies because of reading through the bible.

 I already knew the main stories of the books of the bible we've read so far, but never to the depth I know them now.  Some of the chapters (Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers mainly) were rather boring with all the laws and family breakdowns.  Now it is getting more exciting.  Some of my favorite verses from the reading so far:
Deuteronomy 6:5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. 
This last verse, Joshua 1:9 is written down on a list I keep to read when I am discouraged by my limitations and pain from my disease.  It is very comforting to me.

I'm so glad you're keeping up, Athena. Good for you! I've found I'm not very scheduled either - I just read when I can fit it in. If it were warmer, I wouldn't mind getting up earlier to read, but it's so cold that I just want to stay in bed in the mornings. :)
