James’ Bible

by adustyframe ~ May 17th, 2011


James received a beautiful Bible from my Dad as a gift when James was baptized.

One day during school this year, he grabbed a pen while we we were reading. He drew a box around the verses we read.

I said, “What are you doing?”

He explained, “I want to keep track of the verses I read so I know when I read the entire Bible.”

AWWW That made me so happy. I love watching him grab a pen and put a neat little box around the numbers. He always comments when he finds several verses in one passage that he’s already read.

It’s a little unconventional but I love it!


4 Thoughts Shared to James’ Bible

  1. Ame

    i always mark in my bibles … and for years i’ve noted the date next to passages when i’ve read them.

    So cute! I love how their little minds work.

  3. Lisa

    My daughter did that for several years [happily it was a Study Bible and not her beautiful leather bound-name embossed Baptism gift] Like you, I wouldn’t have cared though if it was the nice one. What a treasure to look back on.

  4. Janet

    I LOVE his idea! Although I mark my Bible up a ton, I’ve never thought of marking each verse I’ve read before!
