Thoughts for Today

Four things you can't recover

The stone..........after the throw. The word..........after it's said.

The occasion......after it's missed. The time...........after it's gone.

Knock, Knock, I knocked at heaven's door this morning.
God ask me........'My child what can I do for you?
And I said,...... 'Father, please protect and bless my friends
reading this message:
God smiled and answered.........'Request granted.'

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet
is fighting some kind of battle.......

But Grow in Grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. 2 Peter 3:18

The History of APRONS
I don't think our kids know what an apron is.
The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, because she only had a few, it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and they used less material, but along with that, it served as a pot holder for removing hot pans from the oven.
It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.
From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.
When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.
And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.
Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.

Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.
From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.
In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.
When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.
When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.
It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes.
Send this to those who would know, and love, the story about Grandma's aprons. Or it can be a good history lesson for those that have no idea how the apron played a part in our lives.
Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to 'cool'. Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to 'thaw'.
They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron. I don't think I ever caught anything from an apron.

This is a great site.

I have had the previledge to know this young Lady and her Family. They were part of our Church that my husband and I ministred in, in Bowie Tx. They were a blessing to us.
They where a great asset to the work there. But God had other plans for there family.
He had called them to Columbia. But that is not the end of the story. They could not enter
Columbia right now. Because they needed to be sponcered from the inside of the country.
So that they can work with the Pastor there. His name is Bro. Aya, he ia a national.
So for now God is using them in a work in Panama. They are helping with the distibution of
Christian School Materials and Tract Literature. Wow, what an opportunity to be used of
the Lord. Also to see souls won for the Him. I thank God for having known this blessed Family.
So please pray for them.

Intercede in Prayer

I would like your Prays for a lady in our church. She has been through some trials lately. She had lost her father this past July. From a massive heart attack. Then last week, Feb 27th she recieved a phone call about her daughter being sick. They had taken her daughter to the Hospital. Where she was haveing some problems breathing. When the doctors had examined her, they found internal bleeding. Not knowing what was going on, they did some more tests.
The next morning she had passed away. She was only 47 yrs old. She left behind one daughter.

Please pray for Doris Lundy
Thank you
