Whats Black and White and ..."Read"?

A special gift to our four son-in-laws

A wonderful idea from my wonderful husband

The plan:

Each son-in-law will get a Bible for a year -

They will read it and as they do, they will put their notes in the w i d e margins

Next Christmas they will pass the Bible on to another one, and do the same the next year, until they have all had all the Bibles.

What a neat idea! 

The good-looking guy in the middle came up with this wonderful idea!
He will have a Bible too, and put his notes in it.

Kinda wish the girls and me had done this too.  Maybe next year.  I sure do love that Red Bible.

Update:  The girls and I actually did get red Bibles just like the guys, and we are making notes and are planning on exchanging also.  I am looking forward to getting my youngest daughter, Hannahs, Bible and giving my Bible to my oldest daughter, Rebecca.  I love my family and I love my Bible! 
May always the Bible be precious to you,
For in its pages are promises true!
When tossed and turned on life's troubled sea,
Always remember God's Word is there.
The world may lend you success and pleasure,
Always remember this eternal treasure! 
Written by my husband, Lonnie Moore


  1. Well, guess what! The girls are going to get red Bibles as well. I am looking forward to it. It's going to be neat to see the notes and thoughts of the girls. It's exciting!

  2. Hi Gail...

    It's so nice to meet you, my friend! Welcome to the Sunday Favorites repost party...I'm just tickled pink to have you join in with the fun!

    What a GRAND idea! I have owned a "wide margin" Bible and used it for many, many years. I think I have nearly all of my margins filled with study notes, explanations, and personal notes as well! I have now put that Bible away...I do hope that my loved ones will enjoy it some day! I purchased a new Bible and now I'm working on that one! Hehe! Anyway, I really do love the idea that you gifted each one of your son-in-laws with a wide margin Bible and that next year they will exhange one another's Bibles and notes! That is just the coolest idea!!! Thank you for sharing this sweet post with us for the Sunday Favorites party! Hope to see you again!

    Warmest wishes,

    PS...great idea to include the girls as well!

  3. Dear Gail, I too like the Bible passing idea. In 1980 at a ladies meeting I was challenged to be "different" by not being ashamed to carry a Bible everywhere. So I chose a red one which my husband wrote a special note in to me. I am now using my second red Bible which I carry to church and retired the other just for home study. I write notes in them to my grandchildren who I hope will read them one day and know I thought of them often.
