My well loved Bible has seen brighter days - aesthetically speaking, at least. I have a smaller one that I take to church now, but this is my study Bible and generally the one I use on a daily basis. Broken binding or not, I couldn't bear to part with it. It has been my life manual for so many years. We're talking good times & bad, happy & sad, through depression & anxiety, rejoicing, celebrating & memorializing. Whether I've been in a difficult season or an easy one, this particular Bible has been my direct line with God through so many life experiences - from the mundane day to day, to the life altering. This Bible has many years left in it, as you can see by the picture of the inside, so I wasn't about to let a broken binding send me to the store to buy a new one.
Solution - DUCT TAPE! In 5 minutes, it was as good as new (and much cuter than before anyway)! I applied the tape to the entire inside and outside cover. That should hold it for at least a few more years! I can't wait to see what He has to show me tomorrow!
