~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Quilts on a Thousand Hills

by Ron McCluskey

"Aunt Joe! Aunt Joe!" Alice called downrepparttar 127025 stairs.

(Everyone called Josephine Aunt Joe. But, I call her that for a special reason. After all, she was my step great-aunt in-law.)

"What do you need Alice," Aunt Joe replied.

"You gave away our quilt. Did you forget that we are getting company tonight?"

Aunt Joe and her husband were missionaries in Africa. It was very difficult to get supplies and even harder to get luxuries like quilts. Even though they were in Africa, they lived high inrepparttar 127026 mountains where it got cold at night and blankets were necessary. Alice was her housekeeper. There were two very important church leaders coming to inspect their mission and stayrepparttar 127027 night with them. They would get very cold without a quilt.

"That's right," Aunt Joe said thoughtfully, "We better pray about it. After all, you knowrepparttar 127028 Lord ownsrepparttar 127029 quilts on..."

"Stop right there," said Alice, "I know what you're going to say. You are going to say thatrepparttar 127030 Lord ownsrepparttar 127031 quilts on a thousand hills. But how is he going to get you one here by tonight?"

"Well, lets just pray about it." And that is what they did. When they got off of their knees, they fixed uprepparttar 127032 guest roomrepparttar 127033 best they could. Then they went downstairs.
