OK so how am I doing

OK, so how am I doing? Seems like a weird question to ask myself, but I believe that honest self-evaluations are firmly the work of the Spirit…so how am I doing? On January 17, 2006 I wrote:

It is only January 17, 2006 but already I feel different this year – in a good way. There are some things that I am doing differently; some unique things that I was not doing at all last year:
  • I am reading through the Bible in a year. I am only on Genesis chapter 40, but you have to start at Genesis 1 so that is a bit of progress.

  • I am reading a novel. I am going through Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury again. I read it when I was younger (14 or 15 I think) so it was high time I read it again. Also, I cannot remember the last novel I read.

  • I read the Jesus I Never Knew by Phillip Yancey. I have decided to read more this year.

  • I am on the treadmill 5 times a week for 30 minutes.

  • My wife and I have been renting more movies. Since Christmas I think we have watched 4 or 5 different DVDs.
I have been writing regularly in this blog since the middle of November 2005.

  • I am on schedule with the Bible reading which is due, in no small part, to some of the business trips I have been taking where I caught up. Last night I finished the first two chapters in Esther and the first chapter in Romans.

  • I have not read another novel nor have I read another book. I want to re-read a small book by John MacArthur called Found: God’s Will and internalize the Scripture it contains to a great extent.

  • I have decided to bump the treadmill time down to 4 times a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday). I have lost 20-25 pounds and two inches off my waist.

  • Last weekend my wife and I watched Cheaper by the Dozen 2. It was a nice movie.

  • I am still writing regularly in this blog. I will leave the judgment of the quality of the posts as an exercise to the reader.

We’ll see what the second half of the year brings.
