Priceless Books.

A few Sundays ago I taught in Relief Society; the topic was The Scriptures.
As I was visiting with my fab parents one evening we were looking at some old books.  My mom happened to bring out some old scriptures that belonged to my Great Grandma.
One is the Pearl of Great Price
and the other is
the D&C.
When I flipped through these two very old and fragile books I cold feel the love my Great Grandma had for the scriptures.  In the front of her D&C she has "tick" marks as to how many times she read the book.
Many of the pages have notations of things she learned.
She did the same with the Pearl of Great Price.
Nearly every page is worn and tattered.
When I hold these two books I can honestly feel the love that my Grandma had for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Love for the scriptures, and her obedience to follow the Lords commandments.
I have to give these books back to my wonderful momma, so I took a few pictures of them.
(notice the date of the printing? 1898!  112 years old)
I do love the scriptures!
