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: Clean up time. I was dusted yesterday and put back in my place. My owner did use me for a few minutes last week. He had been in an argument and was looking up some reference.
MARCH: I had a busy day the first of the month. My owner was appointed leader of something and used me. I got to go to church services for the first time this year—Easter Sunday.
APRIL: Grandpa visited us. He kept me on his lap for an hour reading 1 Corinthians 13. He seems to think more of me than he used to.
MAY: I have a few green stains on my pages. Had some early spring flowers pressed in me.
JUNE: I look like a scrapbook. They have me stuffed full of newspaper clippings. 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 home as I will have to stay in this thing for a month.
AUGUST: Still in a suitcase.
SEPTEMBER: Back home again in my old place with a lot of company. The TV Guide, Sports Illustrated, and newspaper are on top of me. I wish I was read as much as they are.
OCTOBER: They used me a little today. One of them is very sick. Right now I am shined up and on the center of the table. I think the preacher is coming over.
NOVEMBER: Back in my old place. Was asked today if I was a scrapbook.
DECEMBER: They are getting ready for Christmas, so I’ll be covered with wrapping paper and packages.
Don’t Just OWN a Bible. Read it! “Blessed is he that readeth …” —Revelation 1:3
