What's on the inside...
That's right...I finally made something I can use!! I am so very excited about this, and love my new Bible cover. The next one I make, I will make differently though. This little cover took me quite a bit of time, and patience for that matter. I guess that is how it goes when you are making something for the very first time. I made a lot of dumb mistakes, and my original plan actually included 3 different fabrics, you see how well that worked out! LOL I look forward to making more of these covers, and I hope and pray that they will bless the person they are being sent to. I don't want to get a new Bible every time it starts to look old. There is just something special about my Bible. It's old-ish, written in, highlighted in, circled in....there needs to be a lot more done though. I love flipping through and seeing all of the old notes that I had written, and being reminded of what that specific scripture said to me. There are notes from church camp, retreats, Sunday sermons, quiet times, and small groups in it. It is exploding with knowledge about the One who is Good, and I need to make more of a commitment to read it on a more regular basis. Anyway, here is a picture of my "new Bible." I love it. Like I said on my facebook page when speaking about the cover, "It may not be perfect, but the Bible inside of it is." I love when I think up catchy things to say! Be blessed friends!
