I was looking for another book when I came across this one.
I opened it and noticed the date that it was presented to me.
51 years ago today.
I had just started the 4th grade.
Life was simple.
Of course, a lot has happened over the years.
School. Career. Marriage. Family.
Joy and tragedy.
Life got more complicated.
Finding this Bible reminded me of my roots.
Both physical and spiritual.
I am so very far from perfect, a sinner in thoughts and deeds.
But this Book has been the foundation for a life I've tried to live.
And I'll keep on trying....
