flawed = strong



"A bible that is falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t."

These are my parent's Bibles - worn and tattered - many would think the books flawed with their scuffed covers and bent pages - but my parents carry them proudly. To me these flaws are visible evidence of their dedication to God and proof that they read His word daily - their source of strength in a world filled with flaws.

  5. Powerful photo. I have my mom's Bible and the white one she gave me on my 13th birthday and the one given to us when we married by my husband's grandparents. His grandpa was a Baptist minister.
