I received a wonderful new Bible from my husband for Christmas. It is called the Busy Mom's Bible, it has pages inside it where you can study the Bible in a guided five minute fashion. Things like that help me remember I am not the first one to journey down this wonderfully turbulent road called motherhood. Did I mention that the Bible is pink?!? I must admit I have a love affair with that color.
I needed a new Bible. My old one was given to me when I went away to college. It has been a dear friend for over a decade and was sadly falling apart. It has "fold out maps." That is what I called them. In other words the maps fell out every time you opened the Bible.
I took my new Bible to church on Sunday. I still knew where all of the books of the Bible were…like in which order…but I struggled in finding them as quickly as I could with my "old" Bible. I felt self-conscious that people were thinking I didn't know where the books of the Bible were! Isn't that silly?!? I must admit that I missed my old faithful Bible. And I also want to always remember that I am so blessed to be able to have a "replacement" Bible when one wears out. So many people in the world have never had the privilege to have their own Bible. I cannot imagine! Lord, please help me to never take my Bible for granted!
