B is for Bible
The Bible's that I own have all been gifts from special people in my life. My mother bought my first Bible as a Christmas gift. She wrote inside the cover that I was 11 and dated it 1968.
As you can see it is the King James Version and was even personalized. The next Bible I received from a friend that actually lead me to my personal relationship to Jesus. That friend explained what it meant to be Born Again and after a few months attending a spirit filled church and spending time with this friend I made that step in my life. I was a single parent at the time and my girls were all very young. I would not have had the funds to buy a Study Bible so it was very precious to me to receive one as a gift.
It is very worn now because it has by far been the most used of my Bibles. It is heavy though and got quite a banging around carrying it back and forth to church, so my oldest daughter bought myself a slim line NIV Bible as a Christmas present. It is definitely my most treasured Bible. It actually resides in my car so I am never without it if I need it for church or study.
As you can see every Bible I have owned has been a gift from someone loved. But we should always remember the original Giver of the Word itself is more precious than any other. "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4
