What An Apron SpeaksTo Me


What a wonderful day, It looks like fall but feels like summer. I went out and picked some fresh tomatoes and picked a wee little pumpkin for my youngest grandson Marshall. It was just his size. The smell of fresh tomatoes just make my mouth water. And the color of pumpkins make me feel like fall is here.

I wanted to make a comment on what a apron does for me and speaks to me. This may bore some of you off your rockers, but it was tugging at my heart strings.
An apron makes me feel like I am dressed to prepare a meal for those I love. To do a job that is much needed and required. I want to fulfill my calling as a women, wife, and mother. And for some reason it makes me feel like it is a small thing. But it gives myself and my family a happy feeling, knowing that when they see Mom or Grandma with her apron on, something must be cooking.

 I love to wear my aprons, and I have many ones to choose from. I like to even sew them in many
different colors and patterns. I believe it has been a ministry to make them and give them away, to encourage women to be keepers of their homes.

Now, my aprons are not all balled up in a pile, but rather I love to wash and iron them. I keep them 
in a drawer in my kitchen.  And I have them ready to pick a new one every couple of days.
I have a sweet little hanger hook shaped like a tea pot that I hang my apron on that I am using,
on any given day. I can actually feel a difference about being in the kitchen as soon
as I put my apron on.

If you have never worn an apron I encourage you to try wearing one, you just may realize
that this is what you have been missing!

May your kitchen smell heavenly!
May you feel lovely and domestic!

Aprons And More


Well, here is the apron I put in the State Fair, I was so surprised to get 4Th place. Now this apron has a story. It was a pattern given to me by a very sweet and special friend years ago. And I really wanted to make it, but it was one of those things that just took forever to complete. And this pattern was an original , now the directions were a bit on the rough side not the finished edges we have on patterns today. So here it is!!
I want to give thanks to my friend Ava who helped me so much and to Missy for the pattern.
I just want to say hello to all of you gals in bloggersville. It has been a very busy month with a seminar I went to, and then we had a leadership conference this last week. We were so blessed to be able to have many men of God speak into our lives. Jim Cymbala, Nicky Cruz, Carter Conlon, Claude Houde, Gary Wilerson, and a surprise speaker David Wilkerson.
It was life changing!!
"Lord , Increase Our Faith." Now here it is did you all really think I could post without preaching? There is a call from the Spirit of God to enter into your prayer closet to intercede for the lost. Even in the time of rain we must pray for rain, heavenly rain.
Rain down, you heavens, from above. And let the skies pour down righteousness:
Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together,
I, the Lord, have created it. Isaiah45:8
