reading between the lines of her Bible

“It’s a very intimate thing to go through someone else’s Bible,” said Laura after spending a day at the Gospel Light Archives researching Henrietta Mears. She talked about how some books of Henrietta’s Bible were very worn from frequent use and how her long lists of people that were shoved in the back revealed much about her prayer life. Her added notes and underlined passages told a whole new story within the pages of narrative we know and love.

I wonder what people would think if they read between the lines of my Bible. I’m pretty sure I would be humbled.
