Josh's new Bible

My parents bought Josh a Children's Bible to celebrate his salvation. He received it in the mail this week and was so very excited. He was thrilled when he saw his name on the front, then giddy when I read the inscription they wrote in it, then beside himself when he started exploring the book and found pictures. So we're in the van, and he's exploring his Bible. Suddenly he screams, "It has a MAP!!!!!" Why a map is exciting to him is beyond my understanding, but it was just so cute.

We then talked about how this isn't like his story Bible. We talked about how this new Bible has all the same stuff in it that Mommy's Bible has. He then asked if it has the same stuff as his teacher's Bible at church. When I told him yes, he got this sheepish grin on his face and said, "But my teacher doesn't have PICTURES in her Bible!" He couldn't wait to show off that Bible and proudly took it to class with him this morning.

He's growing up. Sniff Sniff


  1. How sweet was this???

    I remember as a young child, I used to be so fascinated by the maps in the back of the Bible. I have no clue as to why. My Mama has a family Bible that I used to sit and look at the pictures for the longest time.

    I can see him just sitting and absorbing The Word.

  2. That is so cool that he is so excited about the Bible! :)

  3. I'll still help you :)
