APRONS

 (Notice that a "Medium" is a size 14 – 16)
            

Remember making an apron in Home Ec? Remember Home Ec? If we have to explain "Home Ec" you may delete this. I just don't have the energy anymore. Read below.

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 and because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons required less material.  But along with that, it served as a potholder 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 folk 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.
 

REMEMBER:

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 – but love…

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Today..I wish you a day of ordinary miracles-

A fresh pot of coffee you didn't have to make yourself.

An unexpected phone call from an old friend.(like ME!) 

Green stoplights on your way to work or shop.

I wish you a day of little things to rejoice in…

The fastest line at the grocery store.

 



A good sing along song on the radio.


Your keys right where you look.

I wish you a day of happiness and perfection-little bite-size pieces of perfection that give you the funny feeling that the Lord is smiling on you, holding you so gently because you are someone special and rare.

I wish You a day of Peace, Happiness and Joy.



They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

Send this to the people you'll never forget.

If you don't send it to anyone, it means you're in too much of a hurry.

Take the time!
Wishing you the very best for 2011

God Said No

God Said No

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, No.
Rolling Eyes
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

 

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary

I asked God to grant me patience. Thumbs Down
God said, No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
it isn't granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness. Bounce
God said, No. I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.
I asked God to spare me pain.
Crying 1
God said, No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.
Wink

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.You must grow on your own! ,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.
Jumping Jacks

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said…Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
Kisses

If you love God, send this to ten people and
back to the person that sent it.
Hello

THIS DAY IS YOURS DON'T THROW IT AWAY Bouquet

May God Bless You,

"To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world"



"May the Lord Bless you and keep you,
May the Lord Make his face shine upon you,
and give you Peace…..Forever"

"Good friends are like stars…You don't always see them,
but you know they are always there

Happy Autumn

 

 
 

HAPPY AUTUMN

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin.   God lifts you up,  
takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.   He opens you  
up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff–  
including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.    Then He carves  
you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for  
all the world to see.    This was passed on to me from another  
pumpkin.   Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin.   I liked  
this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.    Happy Fall!
