Diary of a Bible

January:  A busy time for me.  Most of the family decided to read me through this year.  They kept me busy for the first two weeks.  They have forgotten me now.

February:  Clean up time.  I was dusted yesterday and put back in my place.  My owner used me for a few minutes last week.  He had an argument and needed a reference.

March:  I had a busy day the first of the month.  My owner was appointed leader of something and used me.  I got to go to worship for the first time this year—Easter Sunday.

April:  Grandpa visited us.  He kept me on his lap for an hour reading 1 Corinthians 13.  He seems to think more of me than he used to.

May:  I have a few green stains on my pages.  Had some early spring flowers pressed in me.

June:  I look like a scrapbook.  They have me stuffed full of newspaper clippings—one of the girls got married.

July:  They put me in a suitcase today.  I guess we are off on a vacation.  I wish I could stay home as I will have to stay in this thing for a month.

August:    Still in the suitcase.

September:  Back home again in my old place with a lot of company.  The TV Guide, Sports Illustrated, and newspapers are on top of me.  I wish I was read as much as they are.

October:  They used me a little today.  One of them is very sick.  Right now I am shined up and on the center of the table.  I think the preacher is coming.

November:  Back in my old place.  Was asked today if I was a scrapbook.

December:  They are getting ready for Christmas, so I’ll be covered with wrapping paper and packages.
