Another Christmas Gift!

I have been wanting another Bible for awhile now. Brad wanted to get me one for Christmas. Poor guy, he searched in several stores for the Bible i wanted, which was nothing extravagant. I just wanted a small navy NIV. How hard is that?

Well, he looked in 4 stores & didn't find it! Back when i was a teen, i would complain that Bibles were made in "boring" colors. I always said i wished they'd make them in fun colors. Well, guess what? That is ALL Brad could find! And i wouldn't mind a fun color Bible if it was just solid. But they all have swirls or polkadots or flowers. No, no, i just wanted a plain navy Bible! Or burgandy. Or black!

Well, Brad ran out of places & ordered me one online. He was sad because it meant it wouldn't be here in time for Christmas. But i didn't mind. Well, it came today! =)

It was so funny because i got home & Brad said i should read the new testament part of my daily readings out loud to him each night if i wanted (he reads the old testament in hebrew...crazy!). So i agreed. And he said something like, "i don't understand, i thought they said your Bible was coming today!" So, a few minutes later, i was in my room changing clothes & i glance down at my nightstand & there it is! I started laughing. He put it in the exact spot of where my old Bible was & he put my bookmarks from the other Bible into this one (in the right places)! Ha! Love it! 

And i love my new Bible. It's navy & small & niv - just what i wanted!

YAY!
