Inherited Treasure

When my dad passed away I inherited this great portrait of Jesus. What is awesome about this piece is the fact that it was done on a typewriter. It is all done with bible scriptures. It starts with Joh 1:1 saying, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". It keeps going from John on, not sure what scripture it ends with because the type print is very small. I remember this in my mom & dad's home as I grew up & always thought it was so unique! I have never seen another like this so have no clue of it's value, but can tell you it something that I treasure that belonged to my dad! Would love to hear if any of you have ever seen anything like this before.

God Bless!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Glad I found you as well. I love the picture of Jesus. I think things like that remind us of our faith and just make nice decoration!

Also, I have to say I love the ducks!
