This weeks Take Me Back was inspired by Dianne @ Dianne's Dilemmas. Last week she shared about her grandfathers hands and how he prayed for everyone and everything.
It reminded me of my grandfather.
He wasn't a wealthy man but he held a wealth of love for his family. Here he is with my grandma and all their grandchildren 1962. I am the little blonde girl second row from the bottom holding my favorite cousins hand. Two fo my sisters have on the same dress. My mom loved dressing us a like. My other sister is on the far right with her hands folded in from of her. My oldest brother is on the far second from the left in the back next to the tree. My youngest brother is in my grandfathers arms.
Every morning he started his day with pray. This little bible fit perfect in his pocket. What a blessing to hold such a book in my hands. One that his finger touched and the words read from. I don't have many items from him which makes this so most precious. I love the prayer cards in side. There was also a note but it can't be read any longer, but I won't through it out.
I believe this book was his father, John H.F. Scholl. None of the family Bibles had his middle intials. I did find a John H.F. Scholl in the 1860 census and believe is my great great grandfather, the father of my great grandfather John, the father of my grandfather.
