Wednesday Wisdom

Do you have a notebook or journal handy as you read your Bible? I've found mine to be invaluable for jotting down things that I notice while reading. For instance, the chart below was started 2 years ago during the Take Ten in '10 plan and I've added to it each of the following years.

God is amazing! He always shows me something new! I hope you are mining many nuggets as you read each day.
