Blind Girl’s Fingers Become Calloused

I once read about a young blind girl from France who was given a New Testament in raised letters. She was so excited and read it so much that the tips of her fingers became very calloused so that she could no longer feel the characters. She started crying because now she couldn’t read the Bible at all. As she wept, she pressed the Scripture to her lips and was surprised that her lips were more sensitive than her fingers and she could actually read with her lips. She spent the night moving her lips along the raised letters of her Bible. Oh, that we would desire the Word as much as that. (Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author).
