The History of the Apron..

I borrowed this from a fellow bloggers post, enjoy...

The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, 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


Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.

From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. Af ter th e 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.


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--except love.

God's Goodness

God is good ALL the time! The older I get, the more I grow in the Lord the more I see God's goodness and mercy in my life. No matter how dark, rough, and nearly impossibe life can seem to get, the more God manifests His goodness in my life. The more I can trust that He will help me through whatever it is I'm going through. The last year and a half  was probably some of the most difficult times I've had, even more difficult that when Grace was in the hospital. But because I've seen God do so much in my life and the life of others, I knew He'd get me through in His perfect way and time. And you know what, He did!

Psalms 73:1 <> Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
