Thankful for the Word of God

Show and Tell This is a link to No Place Like Home Show and Tell Friday.

Today I am showing two Bibles. The one on the left belonged to my dad. He passed away in 1994. The one on the right is a Chain Reference Bible I bought for my self about 37 years ago for around $18.

I am most thankful for the Word of God. It is what will keep us when all of our treasures are gone.

The centerpiece is one my daughter gave me this year and the coffee table came from the company where I work.

Now to use some of the ideas that were shared this week: I bought everything I needed for the Thanksgiving Blessing snacks. I thought this would be something I can make ahead to take to Ohio next week. Kmart had some fall cookie cutters. My plan is to make my sisters' sugar cookie recipe. For the apple dumplings I'm making for work I thought I might try using one of cookie cutters on the dough for a leaf or acorn shape on top. This morning I gathered pine cones from my yard and used them for the break table at work with the leaf cut outs glued at the end. My pine cones are long and not too fat so they don't look much like a turkey. I stacked some on top of each other and I think it makes a nice decoration for our dinner on Tuesday at work.


  1. Amen! Amen! And AMEN!!!

    "For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart."

    Hebrews 4:12

    "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work."

    2 Timothy 3:16-17

  2. I dearly wish my father had been 'saved' and I'd been able to inherit a bible from him. What a treasure and comfort this must bring you.

    Thanks for showing us.

  7. Yes, thanks for sharing this post! I love that you have grandpa's Bible. It was very sweet of Grandma to give it to you. I'm glad for the Word of God too. You have been such a wonderful inspiration to me. THanks to you and Dad for teaching the way to Christ. Love you!

  9. What a wonderful show and tell! Such beautiful and special Bibles!

  10. Lovely Bibles, wonderful family

  11. I love seeing peoples Bibles. One of my bibles has the binding coming off of it. I can still read it, but know I will need another one soon. The problem is, I like all the underlining and notes on it, that I dont want to put it on the side. I guess that will teach me to buy a better bound book next time!

    Thanks for the comment you left about aprons, it made me smile! Jennifer
