A visit to my attic Brought memories dear to me Hiding in a corner A brown trunk I could see. I opened it so carefully I couldn't help but cry The loveliest things you've ever seen Treasures from years gone by. A china doll so fragile Jewelry in a satin case Dresses oh so beautiful Soft wool all trimmed in lace. A picture of my Mother Recipes written on a pad Shaving cup and brush wrapped up Belonging to my Dad. Yet the most precious thing I found More valuable than silver or gold Tattered and worn from years of use It had to be very old. It was our family bible Wrapped in tissue yellowed from age Something I'll always cherish As I viewed the tattered page. Words are plainly visible They came from our Lord above I'll covet my family bible And cherish it with love. ęGinny Bryant Used With Permission All Rights Reserved By Author Website Mail
