My Bible was given to me as a house warming gift when I bought my new home 45 years ago. It was given to me by my sister-in-law, a Catholic Nun. I have read it almost 30 times now, and each time it provides insight for handling what I face in my daily life. When I traveled throughout the country, I always took it with me to give me the guidance that I needed. The most important lesson that became obvious, is that God is love, and that we are here to truly love one another without hesitation or qualifications. Jesus explained that to us; and in my daily scripture readings, I see clearly what he meant.
