say hello to my little friend

i recently gave away my travel Bible.
i knew the Lord was telling me to give it away,
but for some reason i grieved its loss.

i bought this Bible right after j.w.i. and it has been my go to during 
so many transitions and experiences in life.
from hume to college,
from college to rwanda,
from rwanda to india
and back again.
truly, this Bible was my sword, 
kept safe in the sheath of my purse,
ready for battle.

now, i have a pretty nice study Bible
(effectionately called rosecrans),
but of course i left it at the building after worship service this week.

you guessed it,
i bought a new one.

everybody, say hello to my little friend.

not only is she the perfect size, but she's cute.

best part:
the scripture.

"Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"
Matthew 6:26 

during this current season of life, where want is not a concern,
worry and over-concern seem to creep in more easily.
strange, huh?
but the Lord has been faithful *yet again* in reminding me of 
His faithfulness and sovereignity in all seasons of life.

like a bird.

this is such a good post.

and no, not just cause you linked me.
but bonus points for that.

i freaking LOVE that bible. and i am still way jeal.

the verse seals it.


best bible ever

but i understand your attachment - i lost my first little pocket bible probably 8 or 9 years ago - i STILL miss it.

but my little mint green ivy bible has become a trusty friend.

and so has big black (rosecrans bff, obvs)

i guess God speaks through his word no matter what is on the cover.

i will tell myself this on sunday when i sit next to you coveting. ;)
