Not So Wordless Wednesday 07 September 2016

Not So Wordless Wednesday




Last year, my aunt sent me my grandparent’s Bibles.  They are shown here with Suzanne’s and mine as well.  I think there is a juxtaposition with my grandparent’s Bibles.  My grandmother wrote in hers and used it to keep handouts from church and obituaries from the newspaper in it.

On the other hand, there is no writing in my grandpa’s Bible.  He died before I was born.  My grandmother died after our second child was born, so there is a juxtaposition, too. 

I take great comfort in the fact that I can look and see the Bibles that instructed and inspired my grandparents.  It somehow makes me feel closer to them.

Don’t forget, we will be rolling out our How to Manage Your Monkey course on October 3.  Come join us on our kickoff day.

  1. You are very blessed to have those precious Bibles. They touched them. They breathed prayers over them. They loved over them. I think it was a wonderful gift for Aunt Gloria to give to you.

  3. David, I think I remember flipping through my grandparents' Bible when I was little studying the names of family members - births, weddings, and deaths. It seems both my grandparents wrote along the margins in their Bible. Grandpa was an old timey preacher in the hills of southern West Virginia. They both loved the loved and served Him in whatever way they were called. I miss them both dearly but know they are in heaven. What a sweet memory you stirred up for me today!

  4. I gave my old childhood bible to my first born (son) and it's amazing how much highlighting and margin notes I had collected over the years! Now to see him also making his mark on what he is learning, is a really good feeling. Setting the path for the child to follow is one of the greatest gifts we can give them. :)

    1. It is good you could pass this along to your child and that he appreciates it.
