WOO-HOOO!



We did it... we did it!




The whole family,
out loud,
together,
in one year.

Yes, sometimes we got behind, and I really really wasn't going to freak out if we didn't finish by today, but...
we did.

I'm really proud of the boys for their willing (most of the time) involvement.  They did a lot of the reading, and helped remind us when sometimes Kerry and I forgot.  We soldiered through some of the tougher parts (like Leviticus and Chronicles), sailed through the familiar stories, both OT and NT,  puzzled our way through parts we really don't understand, and drank in comfort, from God's promises.  And it was all good.

And we ended, today, with

Proverbs,
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
       she can laugh at the days to come.


Malachi,
Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come;

Psalms,
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
       Praise the LORD.


and...

Revelation,
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
