My Granny's Bible

My Granny's Bible is worn on the band,
The pages are folded where she wrote notes by hand.
She jotted down dates and names of preachers,
So she could see how God used books, verses, and chapters.

See God uses the Bible in many different ways,
To speak to us, teach us, and help us to not be "dismayed".

My Granny knew how important God is,
How He sent His only Son to take away our sins.

She lived her life as if each day were her last,
She wasn't afraid to witness, she wasn't worried about her past.

A woman of faith, some may have called her,
She was sweet, kind, and loving, a great prayer warrior!

Her Bible was important because it was a direct line to our Heavenly Father,
To her, reading wasn't a bother.

I wish we all had the same love for God that she did,
To be the Christian He wants us to be, and not stay hid.

Granny is in Heaven now, worhipping God in person,
She doesn't need her Bible now, and probably spends lots of time with The Son.

Let your light shine so other's will see,
And read your Bible like my Granny and me.
