'B' is for BIBLE

Continuing to play Alphabet in August.

"B" is, and has to be, BIBLE -

it is the core and foundation of my life and existence.  So much so that when I began blogging I selected it as my header.  I think in King James, because that is the Bible I used when I first began to memorize scripture, but I love various translations of the Bible and  currently own:  The large table size KJV Bible you see pictured above - New American Standard - Phillips New Testament in Modern English - Marked Reference KJV - Scoffield KJV - The Message - Amplified Bible - Narrated Bible in Chronological Order - Parallel Bible NIV/KJV & last but not least Franklin compact battery KJV.  I even have this Child's Bible and Pray Book (2 1/2" long by 1 3/4" wide and 124 pages) that was given to me in 1942 by my Sunday School teacher. 

My very favorite Bible, and truly my most cherished possession, is my leather bound KJV Bible that Mickey gave me on our first anniversary, October 4, 1959.  The pages are almost tissue thin in  places - I have notes written, or taped in the front and back blank pages - it is underscored, highlighted and notes written on many of its pages.  I wore out the original cover and we had it rebound in May, 1979.  It is a rather small bible (5 1/4" wide & 7 3/4" long) and it is the one I still take to Church with me.

This became so long and involved I'm not adding anymore "B" words here. 

I invite you to join up and play along, or if you don't want to do that leave me the "B" words that describe you in your comments.

Have a blessed date.  BLESSED - That is definitely one of my "B" words because I am, and have been so BLESSED.

I too have several Bible's but there is just 'something' about my dear old KJV! I realize of course that our Lord did not speak this language but somehow it seems less filtered.
I would have to say my "B" word is blessings. I do not believe in 'luck' and do not use the word. It sort of leaves things oPen to the enemy. I like 'Blessings because it definitely says. "JESUS DID IT."
Thanks for an interesting post Susan and God Bless you!

Hi Susan,
What a neat post, looks like an enjoyable time sharing something from the alphabet each day! My B word also has to be Blessed! I am so thankful for my blessings, especially for good health! I always hesitate to boast about blessings because I don't want to hurt someone (such as one in bad health) not to feel blessed. I would like to hear how others feel about this. Another blessing is to be able to cope when things go wrong, by trusting in our Lord Jesus!

Well, I could on go on and on, but won't!
