Oh where did January go?!?!

We are one-twelfth (1/12) of the way through the year 2014 already! While I am still having trouble writing 2014 on paperwork at home and work, January has already disappeared. This is just getting ridiculous. Time is flying by and I can't seem to keep up! Not to mention, I didn't read nearly as much as I would have liked. Time got away from me. Life got crazy. And I just didn't read as fast or as much as I normally do. But oh well. It was only one month, right? It was only the beginning of a new year. I've still got plenty of time, right?!?! Well, not if time keeps going by so fast.   :)

January had no real rhyme or reason to what I read. But February will. I'm planning to re-read all of my books about my favorite group of missionaries, the Ecuador 5 -- made up of Nate Saint, Jim Elliot, Roger Youderian, Pete Fleming and Ed McCully. I have 5 books about the missionaries and 2 missions strategy books written by Nate's son, Steve. I have been really aching to re-read these books for a couple of months now and I decided February was as good a time as ever. So that's what I'm going to do starting tonight. And I can't wait!

So, here are my stats for January and I am off to read! Happy reading!
