~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Quilts on a Thousand Hills
by Ron McCluskey
"Aunt Joe! Aunt Joe!" Alice called down 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 in 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 stay 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 know Lord owns quilts on..."
"Stop right there," said Alice, "I know what you're going to say. You are going to say that Lord owns 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 up guest room best they could. Then they went downstairs.
