A special gift.

I know it may not look like much, in fact its used, written on, has bent and dirty pages….and I won’t want it any other way.

It’s my Mom’s old Bible and its special for a lot of reasons.

First of all she bought it at a big music festival that we attended for many years and is a tradition I will not soon forget.

Secondly it is Her Bible with her heart in it. I can’ look through and see what is important to her, her thoughts prayers and praises. Infact that is the point of her giving it to me. Check out the note that came with it:

Amber- I was challenged by a gal telling her story to read, study and pray through my Bible and  and then give it to a loved one so they could ‘see’ that they were prayed for. Well, here ya go. Your name isn’t written everywhere but heart and prayers are. If I could only give you one piece of “advice” for your enitre life it would be take time to be in God’s wrokd EVERY day. So here is my devotional Bible-all set up to help you easily recognize God’s Promises for you. God and I love you, MomPhotobucket

Anyone else want to cry? It is the perfect gift for me. From the heart, and a challange to do something I struggle with consistant time in the Word.

Thanks Mom.

  1. Aww that is so sweet and so touching that it made me cry. You’re so lucky to have such a wonderful mom who loves you so much 🙂 You two must have quite an awesome relationship!

  2. Thanks Darlin’ (as Grandma Carol would say). I haven’t been home and so haven’t read your blog for awhile. I pray you are attempting to meet up with God daily. And for any other mothers reading this, I challenge you to do the same.
