My Bible is twelve years old. It’s pages are ragged from years of study. It has pink paint on it that some kids at camp in Washington spilt on it. It has traveled to Uganda, France, Switzerland, and Haiti. This Bible has been my constant companion in trials and elation.
I am one of those people who writes in their Bible. My Bible has twelve year old Courtney notes and speakers’ eloquent quotes. I have filled up the extra pages in the back of the Bible with study tips, favorite passages, and great quotes.
Today I thought that it would be fun to share with you a few of the things that are written in the covers of my Bible.
