My Amazing Bible
~
My Bible's a source of surprising wealth;
A storehouse of food for the spirit's health;
A refuge of peace from a world in strife;
A place of surcease from the storms of life;
A firm foundation beneath my feet;
A shelter and shield from the noonday heat;
An unfailing help in the time of need;
A joy and comfort to all who read;
A Book that presents, as I read it more,
A friendly Face and an open door;
A plan for the man who is down-and-out;
A goal for the soul that is torn by doubt;
A chart for the heart that has lost its way;
A light in the night and a guide by day;
A care that is sure for the sin-sick soul;
A calm and a balm that can make men whole;
So planned and so grand that it stands alone,
The greatest Book that the world has known!

I found this poem last week and I thought I would share it.
Karen (my friend in N. Ireland) had posted an article about
"Why the Bible" It is very good! I encourage you to go over and
read it. Just click here to see the article.

This week, my husband is preaching a Revival.
It has been a blessing to us all. We have gotten to see friends
we haven't seen in a long time.
Tonight is the last service.
