First let me say that I am a born again christian and try to follow what JESUS would have me do ..I fail him daily, yet he picks me up and says try again my child !!!! knowing that he is closer to me than the air I breathe !that I am just dust designed by my Redeemer!!

Family Heirloom

My husband was given this week a big brown box taped with duck tape that said on the box your Grandmothers Great Grandmothers , making this my husbnads Great Great Grandmothers from years ago. He opened it to find a Black worn leather bond Bible , pages yellowed and dog eared from years of use and age. We looked at this bible with careful hands putting many of the worn pages in plastic sleves to try and save the pages from more deterioration. We found the page dated 1872 wow 141 years . Those 141 years bought to my mind , wondering how many times Chuck's Great Great Grandmother and others though the years have read this bible, the prayers that have been prayed in these 141 years . A Precious heirloom for sure

Notice the Roman Numbers
