100 Year Old Sewing Dresses and Planting Gospel Seeds

[HUMMING – SINGING] When we all get to heaven,
what a day of rejoicing that will be. When we all see Jesus, we’ll
sing and shout victory. That’s why I don’t
sing in the choir. Ha, ha, ha. I was born in October 1916,
and I’m 100 years old now. Living a meaningful life is
different with everybody. I’m not a preacher. I couldn’t get up on a
platform and give a message. That isn’t my work. The Lord gave me hands
with no arthritis, so I do a lot of sewing. I’ve been given a talent
and I make use of it. Do, do, do. I wake up early, between 2:00
and 5:00, some place in there, and I get up and started
at the sewing machine because I love it. My mother, she was a
very good seamstress. She made everything that Esther
and I wore, my sister and I. So I learned mostly
from my mother. And then everything I made
didn’t turn out right–come on now, come on– but that’s the
story of learning. If everything went perfect,
you really wouldn’t learn. There you go. The pastor said to me
one Wednesday night, “I’ve got a job for
you if you’ll do it.” He said, “I want you to make
180 ‘something’ for little girls before Christmas.” Then I found out that
Samaritan’s Purse had these Christmas boxes– shoeboxes– that
they fill, And I got to thinking about what
would I do for a little girl. I decided then to make
the little dresses, and I think they’re
turning out pretty good. You are number 33. You will be 101 in October. Right– if the
Lord keeps me here. Otherwise, I’ll be in glory. My husband and I had two
children, Eileen the oldest, and then along came Jeannie. And my Eileen– that’s
her picture there– the Lord called
her home in 2011. Harvey had a
massive heart attack and died April 10 of 1952. He was 36. He was a wonderful husband. I miss him even today. Never got married. You know, there’s something
about touching someone that you’re in love with,
and that same kind of touch does not come from anybody else. [SINGING] But when traveling days are
over, not a sorrow, not a sigh. I don’t know when the Lord
is going to call me home, so I keep going all the time. You have no idea where all those
dresses are going to end up. I wouldn’t even guess. It’ll be awful crowded in here. I can see it yet my mind, plane
landing and their little hands out for a box. And they open them
up and they just– they’re just so thrilled. I can just picture them putting
them on right over their– whatever they’ve got on. God bless each one. We pray in Your Name. Amen. There’s going to be
a lot of happiness, and I’m glad I’m a part of it.

  16. Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5

    The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1

    The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13

    and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity.

    Psalms 40:7

    Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

    Hebrews 10:7

    Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

    Set your borders (Deut.6:8-9), protect your family, times are getting touchy, hold your ground and trust in our Lord. Be prepared both the physically and spiritually. Build up the body of Christ by 'putting on' The Lord. Cling to, dwell in the law (Ten Commandments) and testimony (Sermon on the Mount). We know His voice. His words are spirit and they are life. Hear Him. Prepare for your future and the life of your loved ones. God's blessing is His Word. Look close upon the face of Jesus, for we may not be able to see the face of God, But we can see the face of Jesus for He is in the image of The Father. Grow strong in our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise God for His Word.

    Jesus tells us His Words are spirit and they are life. We can be disciples of Jesus instead of the different religions. Individuals have more truth than most churches. Many are learning to let The Spirit lead them by seeking the wisdom of The Father in Deut. 6:8-9 on how we are to "keep" the Commandments.

    Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5

    The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1

    The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13

    and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity. He is the Law that hung on the cross and the Law written in our heart.

    To "keep" the Commandments the way The Father instructs us, leads us to understand what Jesus said when He tells us, if you love me "keep" His Word as He kept His Father's. If you love Him dwell in His love, or the Sermon on the Mount.

    From the heart the mouth speaks. God's heart is the Ten Commandments, His Son. Jesus' heart is the Sermon on the Mount. When we know their heart, we know the voice of God. When we "keep" the Word, we allow the spirit to lead us in all we do. Put Him on, or as Paul says, "put on Jesus."

  24. ينقصها الإسلام، فقط، رب يفتح عليها لكي تسلم قبل أن تموت،
    إلى من يسكن هناك بجوارها، ادعها إلى الإسلام الصحيح، وأن تأخذه من الثقات الألباني رحمه الله الشيخ فركوس حفظه الله الشيخ لزهر حفظه الله، الشيخ رسلان حفظه الشيخ ابن عثيمين رحمه والشيخ إبن باز رحمه الله والشيخ جمعة حفظه والشيخ سليمان الرحيلي والفوزان حفظهما الله، لا تجعل تأخذه من الصوفية أو الأشاعرة أو الاخوان المجرمين، فهناك فرق ضالة كما قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ((تفترق أمتي على 73فرقة كلها في النار إلا واحدة،…) تكون ماكان عليه الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم واصحابه ، عفانا الله من شرها وجعل كيدها في نحرها. صل على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم. استغفر الله العظيم واتوب اليه.
