“DREAMING FOR YOUR KIDS” by Ron Luce: “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see v isions. (Joel 2:28), we hear Joel 2:28 in church and think about how revival needs to come to the younger generation. But instead of concentrating on that part of Joel 2:28, I want to draw your attention to the ‘old men will dream dreams’ phrase.  I used to overlook that part of the verse most of the time, thinking. ‘I’m not going to talk or think much about the old men dreaming dreams.’ But it is the older people in our society who dream dreams for the younger generations; and so it must be the parents who dream dreams for their children. There is one thing we can all agree on: Our children are not the ones who invented these things.”

This is about “AN APRON” if you were around your grandmother as I was, 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 potholder for removing hot pans from the oven. It was wonderful for drying children’s tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning 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, and waved her apron and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields for dinner. It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that old-time apron that served so many purposes. 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 a apron… but Love!! See you next time HA, HA, HA.
