Where's M. Night Shyamalan When You Need Him -- posted by Sarah Grace

Recently, Mr Billy and I had been talking about our first Bibles, and today I went in my room to pull mine out. It's a light pink children's Bible, and I received it for my birthday when I turned eight. Today as I flipped through it, I noticed some hot pink highlighter marks. There was only one chapter highlighted, and it was Psalm 103. I have no memory of doing that, and I didn't take much notice of it at the time because I was too tickled with taking a picture to show Billy the pink highlighting eight-year-old Sally drew in her pink Bible, as I knew he'd get a kick out of it.

Later, Mom read Psalm 103, since she had seen I had highlighted it. She came to me in the kitchen with tears in her eyes--

It was the very Psalm I chose to read during my eulogy for Webb.

Oh! Isnt that strange! I was given a Bible by one of the nuns at my school as I didnt have one - it had old fashioned, poorly tinted photographs of the Holy Land in it and all sorts of helpful 'nun notes' scribbled in the margins. When I left school I lent it to someone who was similarly bible-bereft and she never gave it back. I hope she eventually gave it to someone else who needed it. s x
