God Appointment

God works in mysterious ways... HOW CRAZY!!

Woman buys used Bible, finds childhood essay she wrote 65 years ago

COVINGTON, Ky. - Five months ago, Marion Shurtleff, 75, walked into a tiny bookstore and bought a used Bible. What she found inside the Bible moved her to tears.
When she took the bible home, she noticed a yellow folded letter inside -- but didn't think much of it.
But after two months went by, Shurtleff took a closer look.
“And then I opened it up, and instantly I saw my name,”  10News Scripps sister station WCPO reported. “I recognized my handwriting. I hollered. I started shaking. I cried. I had goose bumps."
Stuck between the pages was an essay that she wrote 65 years ago to earn her merit badge for Girl Scouts, when she was living in Covington, Kentucky, where she was born. Shurtleff now lives thousands of miles away in San Clemente, Calif.
WCPO reported the letter read in part, “Be kind to animals. Do not pick flowers. Don’t walk on the grass.”
Shurtleff is now on a mission to figure out who previously owned the Bible.
