Last Christmas while I was waiting at Walmart to pick an online order I came across this pink bible in the children's book section. So, I decided to read a little from the Book of Revelations to pass the time. I decided to buy it because it was such a cute pink color and I knew my grand daughters would love it. When the manager came out to tell me that he had not yet found my order, I asked him if he could please get me a price for the bible. He scanned it and said it did not have a sku price code and that maybe the kid that works the book dept. could help me while he tracked down for my order. The nice young man said that the bible did not look familiar and he did not think that they carried that color either. He walked me to the bible section and I told him I had found it at the children's book section. He said hmmmm....I don't know what to tell you....guess you'd better talk with the manager again. By then, I had goose bumps, thinking that maybe someone had left it for someone else to find.....and I had just stumbled across it. So, back to the manager I went. And, I told him that I still wanted to buy it and he said I couldn't buy it since it was not a Walmart item. And, this is what he said while looking me right in the eye....It's your's now, you wanted to buy it all along.....and.....HE works in mysterious ways, doesn't HE? ...Merry Christmas...
It was a very special Christmas present indeed! I lovingly call it my Pepto Bismol Bible because i have claimed it as mine.(also note that the bible is frayed all around the edges and there was no name inside). December 2012
