A Family Bible
In this picture she is holding me with my mom and her mom beside her. I was thinking she looked rather old in the picture, then I realized she was younger than I am now. So say she was in her early 50's here, I have to wonder what she would have said or done different if she had know she would live 50 plus more years. Because she did. So she was only half way through with her life here.
This was one of her later in life Bibles. How many Bibles did she wear out in her 100 plus years? It has comments and is underlined throughout. It was her guidebook to live by. It told her of her hope and future.
If I live to be 100, how many Bibles will I wear out? How will my Bible show those left behind what was important to me on earth?
I want to leave several worn out Bibles during my life.
