A Gem in the Word

God's word is full of priceless treasure, but I have a special one in my Bible that belongs only to me! When my girls were younger they loved to use rubber stamps. When my daughter Kaitlyn was 10 years old, she presented me with this bookmark she made with rubber stamps that I will keep in my Bible until the day that I die. In her own little poetic way, she gave me the best compliment that a mother could receive. In a culture where the family is diminishing and motherhood is not highly valued, she has found me to be a "rare" mommy. How much better could it get than that? I'll be an old lady - Lord willing - holding that in wrinkled, knotted hands, with a laugh in my heart that we broke the mold, shunned the mediocre, and aimed for the absolute best, because I am a rare mommy!
Thank you my precious baby girl. Your words have been forever etched in my heart. You too are a rare daughter!
What's in your Bible?

  1. I love those kind of gifts. I don't have one in my Bible though... I do have a poem that I wrote in the front that has meant a lot to me over the years. I will post it later today maybe. Have a great day!
