How Do You Dispose of Old Family Bibles?

 

My grandmother passed away at the age of 98 in 2009.  She was a deeply religious woman who had several Bibles, some she read daily, others she had for 75+ years and were falling apart.

Believe it or not, even after all these years I am still getting rid of her papers, pictures, letters, and cards many she wrote years before her death.  I have been holding onto her many Bibles, some with print too tiny for my eyes to read; a large Coffee Table Bible and a few Children’s Bibles.  I no longer have a Coffee Table nor do I have little children so what do I do with them.

I can donate a few to a homeless shelter especially those with all the pages intact, but how about the ones with pages falling out – do I simply throw them it into the recyclable bin?

Hubby bought me a new Bible for Christmas a few years ago, so between that one and my Smartphone app, I definitely don’t need any of them.  My hubby and sons are Muslims and have their own Holy Koran so I won’t be passing them down to the next generation.

 

What do think I should do with these old Bibles?

I Fear For My Husband’s Health – Trump’s Muslim Ban

This post was originally written and posted on my other blog, DeDivahDeals on June 4, 2015.  However, in light of what’s been happening in the world and Trump’s #MuslimBan, I thought it would be appropriate to repost it here on my new blog.

I fear for my husband’s health…

…not from the back pain that keeps him from grooming his feet

I fear for my husband’s health…

…not from the x-rays and stitches caused by students that he was there to educate

I fear for my husband’s health…

…not from the cancerous cells that have invaded his body and has made him lose so much weight.

I fear for my husband’s health…

…because yesterday as I sat nervously in the car as he parked to pray…laying his Prayer Rug beside the car

Praying to Allah for the 3rd time of the day…praying for guidance, love, safety and good health not only for himself but for his family, friends and all mankind.

I fear for my husband’s health…

…as I watched an elderly woman peer across the lot, grab her purse a little tighter and begin to walk a little quicker

I fear for my husband’s health because we live in a country that many have died to protect their religious freedoms, yet find it easy to bear arms and spew hatred against another’s religious beliefs.

I fear for my husband’s health and my son’s future….

So help us, God!
