Ephesians in a week.

I have a Bible that my grandparents gave me for my 19th birthday, and it's my favorite gift I've ever gotten. When I got it in the mail on the 28th of October, 2008, I found a sweet letter inside that made me cry. My grandparents had spent the previous year reading through the entire thing, carrying it around with them, praying for me and writing notes to me in it as they read. For a year, they dedicated special times of prayer to me, carrying with them everywhere they went a Bible with my name inscribed on the front.

Today I was flipping through the New Testament trying to find a particular verse, and on the last page of the book of Ephesians, a note from my grandpa stood out to me. This is what it said:

Sara,
The book of Ephesians is probably the most quoted book of the New Testament. It is short, but full of great lessons for your life--How to live as a Christian, to be a wife (if your choice!), ways to keep your faith strong and alive. We pray that this book of Ephesians will be one that you read often as it is the shield of faith.

Feeling convicted that not only do I not read it often, I don't think I've ever read through the entire book, I decided to read through Ephesians this week. One chapter a day, and see what God has to tell me. I'm excited about it! I can't wait to read Grandma and Papa's notes either. :)

More notes to come...
