Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

A Book

I think it is a children's bible story book.  The pictures are gorgeous and may be hand tinted.  It was purchased in Russia as the traditional price was inside the cover.... 237-   (would that be Ruples?)

I hope someday I can go to Russia as we did Ukraine.

Our older son says that the cover says, "Bible with Stories for Children". I was able to make out "Biblia", lol. Glad our son has not lost his 1st language...though he came TOO close to doing so almost a year ago!

Great find, Christie! Kelly

Yes, rubles. 237 Russian rubles is about USD 7.56. :) If it was bought in Ukraine, 237 grivnas are nearly 30 dollars!

Really pretty book, quite possibly brought either by a Russian family, a missionary, or an adoptive family.

That really is nice; I honestly think it is the same one that our missionary friend gave to all the children at the orphanage where he works.

How nice!

Awesome! Rosetta Stone has a good Russian language program if you wish to learn to speak Russian. I don't know how effective it is for reading, but it does teach that as well. You can possibly find a used version online some where.
