Unbelievable How Gorgeous it Is Both Spiritually and Physically!

The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8
When I look at this cover and see all the blooms etched into the aubergine soft touch leather smiling back at me, I remember the cover is like the verse Isaiah 40:8... when I open the cover the beauty of it fades into the background of my mind and my spirit opens up to the Word of God as it houses my Bible inside. This cover protects my matching Study Bible for Women NKJV [D.K.Patterson / Holman(2015)] nicely with it's lovely stitching and sturdy handle upon the spine. When open, it is not like the covers that have handles like a purse that get in the way. On the back cover, it has a 6" vertical pocket that you can put notes in if you wish. Inside, there are two pen holders and your Bible will slip into the sewn in flaps. Rest assured they securely hold your Bible well providing you have purchased the correct size. The verse on the front cover is Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". Thus for me, in God's garden -- The Word, He helps me weed out what I don't need in my life and nurtures my spirit when I am weak with His strength for which I can do all things... until I bloom fully in His Glory. This is what the verse on my Bible cover reminds me of when I look at it daily! That verse with the blooms speak volumes to me and it is the first reason I chose this cover. I studied the etched flowers which I believe them to be Peonies. If you do not know what they symbolize they stand for the flower of riches and honor, embody riches and prosperity, and regarded as a symbol of good fortune and a happy marriage! Isn't it ironic that God is full of the same things by way of giving us rich blessings, we honor Him, and the most important is our relationship with the Bridegroom Jesus be a happy marriage? The second reason is it pairs very nicely with my new Bible which I referenced above; I also wrote a review for it on CBD. This cover for me is incredibly gorgeous, both spiritually and physically! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
