Gratitude and Appreciation

my journey into being thankful for what i have


on January 8, 2014

I often forget that as an American, I am incredibly blessed to have Bibles.  Not just one, not just a chapter or a page, but multiple full-length Bibles.  I have them in a variety of different translations (including one that’s got two versions side by side!), and I love being able to compare the wording from one to the next.  I even have a New Testament in French!  =-)  For those of you who will ask: yes, I actually CAN read it without having to use a French-English dictionary (but it definitely helps that it’s the New Testament, so has a lot more phrases that are familiar to me!).  Ha ha!  =-)

We are all so incredibly blessed by having the freedom to own a Bible, to have access to more than one!, and to be able to openly study them.  There are many, many people in this world who don’t have that.  Who think that having a single page from a Bible is amazing.  Who would be tortured or persecuted for even thinking about studying the Bible.  Praise the Lord that we are not among those!  May we never forget how blessed we are, or take it for granted.  And may we remember, on a daily basis, to take time to study the Bible(s) we have.
