I hadn't really meant to talk about this yet because I don't know that I will continue to succeed, but I bought The Story for my Nook. (For those who don't know basically this is a book that was created by simplifying the NIV Bible into what is pretty much a series of flowing stories. The words of the NIV are used, but only parts are highlighted by inclusion in the book and (I've finally discovered) for me the whole thing is much easier because it is isn't on thin paper that rattles; there are not numbers and lots of footnotes making the text appear to be visually overwhelming.
Anyway, I'm not very far along. I just finished Noah, which you can probably tell is a favorite story. (I ever named my cat Noah). But it never occurred to me that this last year has been a Noah year. God has wiped my slate clean. The rain is still falling and there's a lot of praying not to drown with PTSD treatment. But somehow knowing that this isn't the first time God has announced enough, time to start over is helpful.
