Deborah Savely lost a Bible that was very important to her, and now after 40 years she has it back. When Savely went to college at Vol State in 1972, she took the Bible with her because it was a special reminder of her father who had passed away a year earlier. He had given her the Bible and written a message in it when she was seven years old. She treasured the book and carried it with her in her backpack. Savely noticed the Bible was missing after she graduated from the school in 1974, but had no idea where it had gone. A volunteer going through a box of things left over after a tornado damaged the campus in 2006 found the Bible and knew it would mean something to the family. She used records to track Savely down and get the Bible back to her. Savely said having the Bible back made her feel complete. She added, “I’ve got my daddy back. I put my hand on that page and I swear I felt his hand on mine.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
