What do we have to gain from those long Old Testament sections on the law? What about all that history? What can we learn from Paul's letters to the church in the New Testament? By introducing each of the major sections of Scripture, this guide helps us gain perspective on the whole message of God's Word.

Can you post a photo of a book cover in which the SKY is very noticeable ? If you can think of more than one, you can post as many as you‘d like.

I read this years ago and really liked it. Haven‘t seen it mentioned anyplace.

Today‘s prompt SKY


Please repost with the above #.

Thanks !

kspenmoll Gorgeous! 10mo
Kaye This is the older cover. I don‘t like the new cover as well. @kspenmoll 10mo

Does it hurt anyone else to see all the paperback book images that show the front cover folded back to show the front page, dedication page, etc.? I couldn't even do it just for this image. Why would you hurt the books like that? #savethecovers #donthurtthebooks

TK421 I would never fold over the cover, but I have been known to crack the occasional spine. 1y
tonyahoswalt @TK421 That's forgivable 😁 1y

Trying to finish up my #CoverToCoverBook before the post office closes at noon! Enjoying the cooler, although damp weather, outside with the pups! #DogsOfLitsy I 📚💦🐶📚

MicheleinPhilly YES! I opened the back door this morning and said, “AH.” I‘ll even take the rain! 1y
Beckys_Books It's cool and rainy here in mid Missouri as well. I'd love to read today but I'm going to get to run errands in the rain instead. 1y

tpixie @MicheleinPhilly yes! Sometimes rain is good! @Beckys_Books but maybe not while running errands! @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks ♥️ Luckily I got the book done, wrote in the journal, and made it to the Post Office just in time to send this book to @Daisey! 1y

1. Yes!
2. No, I am not a big fan of the heat!
3. I like to stop at the end of the chapter.
4. Love magnetic bookmarks! They are my new addiction!
5. Of course! 😀😀😀

SilversReviews I found adorable magnetic bookmarks at Michael‘s Craft Store and ordered some from Etsy that are typewriters that say Begin on one side and End on the other. They are cute, but I think only a “typing teacher” can love. LOL!! Thanks for playing. 1y
Lovesbooks87 @SilversReviews I will have to check Michaels. I ordered some for Etsy too but they are Beauty and the Beast! It is my all time favorite Disney movie! 1y
SilversReviews @Lovesbooks87 Those magnetic ones sound fun. The ones from Michael‘s were on a display of everything black and white...I think it was last year. They are very cute....they are flag banners and have a short one-or-two word saying on them. Thanks again for playing. (edited) 1y

tpixie @BarbaraTheBibliophage yay! They are fun to watch bloom!! 2y
tpixie @Cinfhen @Nikki15 @Redwritinghood @JoScho @whatshesreadingnow @LeahBergen thanks! I had to go out of town last weekend I was afraid I might‘ve missed the orange ones but luckily I didn‘t! 2y
Soubhiville Wow! I love the purple and blue ones too. I aspire to have a garden like yours someday! 2y
tpixie @Soubhiville there purple & blue ones are fun colors. Red is almost here. Hope the Black one comes! 2y
Soubhiville @tpixie what other kinds of flowers do you keep for when it‘s not Iris season? When I used to garden at the last place we owned I thought of it that way- my gardens were planned entirely around the iris! 2y
tpixie @Soubhiville well we really just mostly have the Iris. My husband mostly takes care of it and he‘s kind of single minded. Someday I would love to have some crocus and daffodils and tulips so they come up one after another. With work I really don‘t have time to nurture a garden but maybe several years after I retire! I‘d like a vegetable garden also. (edited) 2y
Dragon Your irises are so beautiful! 💕🌸 2y
tpixie @Dragon thanks!! This group has really great colors! 2y
