From family to family, from generation to generation, from father to son ~
Wept over, laughed over, smiled over, frowned over,
Revered, honored, respected, treasured,
The new Bible.
From estate sale to collector's shelf, from antique shop to museum,
Exclaimed over, touched over, studied over, bargained over,
Valued, priced, bought, sold,
The old Bible.
From honored to priced, from treasured to sold, from respected to valued,
Wept over, bargained over, smiled over, studied over,
Years, generations, world views, dust,
The lonely Bible.
"And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up...." (Deuteronomy 6:7-8)One word. Seven minutes (I cheated :). No editing. It's Five Minute Friday!
