Jonah 2 v6, jonah

3 days and 3 nights

Mat 12:39-40 sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Jonah 2:6
I went down to the moorings of the mountains;
The earth with its bars closed behind me forever;
Yet You have brought up my life from the pit,
O LORD, my God.

I only have one chapter of Jonah to go... It's been nice during the evenings before drifting off to sleep to "read" myself the story of Jonah from memory - first chapter 1, then chapter 1 and 2. It's still choppy in my head and will need continued practice, but it's really exciting for me. It's more exciting than birthday gifts - it's the gift of God to my heart ♥ It's like having the prophet sitting next to me and telling me all these wonderful things from God! "...[Mary] sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word." Luke 10:39
