On my days off I walk. On one of those days there a place I go and journal. I like to write some scripture verses in my journal. I didn't have a small enough bible to fit in my backpack. When I came across this one, it was perfect. Just the right size. I carry it to the cemetery also when I go see my dad and son who died one year apart. My bible brings me so much comfort . I actually have a bible open in every room. To me the bible is a beautiful book. Full of anything you want to read about. I was happy it had the zipper to protect it.
