Not your ordinary Gideon Bible

Mary and I are in Branson, Missouri. We have been on the road for over two weeks. We have visited Colorado Springs; Amana, Iowa; Chicago; Springfield, Illinois; Columbia, Missouri; and now Branson.

We are staying at the Comfort Inn (our favorite hotel) West. In the hotel room we found a Gideon Bible, on the desk, opened to Esther 9. There is a note on the Bible that looks like this:

To Our Guests

In ancient times there was a prayer for "The Stranger Within Our Gates." Because we care about our guests, we pray that God will grant you peace and rest while you are under our roof.

May this room and hotel be your "second" home and may those you love be near you in your thoughts and dreams.

May your stay with us be an enjoyable one and may you feel as comfortable as if you were in your own home. Amen.

Team Members of Myer Hotels

When we found this, we knew we are in the right place.

Bible Quiz

Frank insisted I take this Bible quiz as amusement while we were driving up to tape group.

Rob said I sure "hesitated a lot" considering that I'm supposed to be the resident Bible expert. But some of them were trick questions!
