Diary of a Bible

January: A busy time for me. Most of the family decided to read me through this year. They kept me occupied the first two weeks, but they have forgotten me now.


February: Clean up time. I was dusted and put in my place. My owner did use me for a few minutes last week; he had been in an argument and was looking up some references to prove he was right.


March: I had a busy day the first day of the month. My owner was elected president of the P.T.A., and he used me to prepare a speech.


April: Grandpa visited us this month. He kept me on his lap for an hour reading and meditating on 1 Corinthians 13. He seems to think of me more than some in my own household.


May: I have a few green stains because some spring flowers were pressed in my pages.


June: I look like a scrapbook. They stuffed me full of newspaper clippings—one of the girls got married.


July: They put me in a suit case today. I guess we are off on a vacation. I wish I could stay home; I know I’ll be closed up in this thing for at least two weeks.


August: Still in the suitcase.


September: Back home at last and in my old familiar place. I have a lot of company. Two women’s magazines and four comic books are stacked on top of me. I wish I could be read as much as they are.


October: They read me a little bit today. One of the family members is very sick. Right now I am sitting in the center of the coffee table. I think the preacher is coming for a visit.


November: Back in my old place. Somebody asked today if I was a scrapbook.


December: The family is busy getting ready for the holidays. I guess I will be covered up under wrapping paper and packages again as I am every year.
