The Word

I'm on my way to church this morning and just thought I would show you a
picture of my Bible I carried to church every Sunday as a child. It's so worn and frayed, but I think it's still beautiful. I don't know if you can see it or not in this picture, but I drew some lovely eyelashes for Jesus. I'm sure he appreciated my efforts. Have a blessed day and I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path
When I feel afraid and I think I've lost my way
Still, you're right there beside me
Nothing will I fear as long as you are near
Please be near me to the end
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet And a light unto my path
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet And a light unto my path
I will not forget your love for me and yet
My heart forever is wandering
Jesus be my guide and hold me to your side
And I will love you to the end
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path
~Micheal W. Smith & Amy Grant

  1. Hi Sheila -
    I love to see worn, frayed old Bibles. It's a sign they were loved and used. I think the eyelashes on Jesus will be noted on your record in Heaven, don't you?

  4. Sheila, so glad you stopped by and let me know about your blog. Everything looks so lovely. I've put you on my favorites, I will drop in often. It is so nice to see your wonderful kitchen again, I've missed it on RMS. You are such a beautiful lady, you and your hubby make such a handsome couple. Thanks for battling your way through RMS this morning to visit my progress posts. Your beautiful vignettes just got me thinking! Hope this finds you having the most wonderful day. Hugs, Cindy

  6. I love your frayed Bible. My father in law said once that he thought all books should look worn and weathered because that means that you read and love them, that's what I thought of when yours came up. I thought, What a loved Bible, just the way it should be! (I'm sure that Jesus appreciated the longer eyelashes!)

  7. It is a beloved antique, I can tell. One you will hand down. By the way, I just love your smile in the photo in your blog side bar. It reminds me very much of that of Delta Burke, from the old show Designing Women. Remember that show?

  8. Hello Shelia! That's a beautiful bible! I think you should frame it in a shadow box and put it on display! Love the part where you added the eyelashes - too funny! Hope you are having a good day. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment about the tray. It looks better in person. Be back soon! ~ Laurie p.s. Lowes carries those little felt sticky things!

  10. How sweet it is that you still have your bible for your youth. And you still use it. It is a lovely bible, and I don't think the Lord would mind the eyelashes. I'm sure that when you put them there he had a smile on his face and in his heart for you. Have a Blessed Week.
