Leap Day has always fascinated me. I think because I missed being a Leap Year baby by only four days. I always thought it would’ve been unique – if Mom had only held out a few more days. Of course, I was already two weeks late so she was having none of that “Wait a couple more days so I can have an off-the-calendar birthday conversation …

Anyhow I thought we’d have some Leap Day fun.

Select from these books (I put one extra in so it’s not too easy and there’s one verses that’s the same in two different books so either one is correct.) Deuteronomy, 2 Samuel, Job, Isaiah, Joel, Malachi, Matthew, Luke, Acts.
