Sidenote: These words are behind my dad’s bible. He didn’t write them, he inherited the Bible. I asked who wrote them once before, I do not remember now. I think it helps put things in perspective with respect to daily devotion. I also think it’s worth sharing to as many people as possible. Enjoy!
January: A busy time for me. Most of the family decided to read me through this year. They kept me busy for the first two weeks. They have forgotten me now.
February: My owner used me for a few minutes last week. He had been in an argument and was looking up some references.
March: Grandpa visited us. He kept me on his lap for an hour reading 1 Corinthians 13
April: I had one busy day. My owner was appointed leader of something and used me. I got to church services for the first time this year. Easter Sunday.
May: I have a few green stains on my pages. Had some early spring flowers pressed in me.
June: I look like a scrap book. They have stuffed me full of clippings from the newspaper. One of the girls got married.
July: They put me in a suitcase today. I guess we are off on a vacation. I wish I could stay at home, as I will have to stay in this thing for a month.
August: Still in the suitcase
September: Back home. In my old place. Have a lot of company. Two “true stories” and four “funny books” on top of me. I wish I could be read as much as they are.
October: They used me a little today. One of them is very sick. Right now I am shined and in the center of the table. I think the preacher is coming.
November: Back in my old place.
December: They are getting ready for Christmas, so I’ll be covered under wrapping paper and packages.
What would the diary of your Bible say?
