Happy Anniversary King James!

I have something really cool to show you!  We recently received a really unusual gift.  It was given to us for Pastor Appreciation Month.  That's funny, huh?  I sometimes get gifts during Pastor Appreciation Month and I am not a pastor.  Mike never ever gets gifts fiation Month.  Anyway...

It is the 500th anniversary of the King James Translation of the Bible.  Did you know that?  I did not know it until my friend, Celia, told me.  She'd found a remake of the translation as it was in 1611!


Here's a peek inside.   Some of the words are a bit tricky but it sure looks pretty.




Thanks for letting me share.

I love the old English...and I grew up reading a King James Version...so most of the verses that I memorized for my ABC verses are the KJV ones...and I still remember every letter's verse...

...we gave the Man that same version this year for the anniversary of his ordination...but I've done more reading from it than he has...ha!

Have a lovely day!
