There was a day when people didn’t have twenty outfits in their closet. Yes folks, we are well overcome with clothing now. Our grannies wore aprons to protect their one or two precious dresses. Wash day was a brute and if you could spare an item or two it was a blessing. Aprons were easy to make, took little fabric and had a multitude uses.
Aprons were potholders, wipers of little tears and noses. Granny’s apron carried eggs from the hen house, and baby critters who needed a warm oven to recover in. On cold days apron became a light sweater.
Older generations didn’t have a multitude of storage units so they carried veggies in from the garden, and windfall apples from the orchard, all in those aprons.
A visitor in the distance brought a quick dusting with the current apron and the donning of a special one, likely embroidered. An apron waved from the porch called men to meals.
I guess we should all be surprised to be alive. Who knows what germs that apron spread to anyone within distance?
We will also survive our current world troubles. How do I know this? Folks just think about it. We have survived apron germ infestation.
So that handkerchiefs or towels or aprons which had touched his skin were carried away and put upon the sick, and their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them. (Acts 19:12, AMP)
Prayer- Lord, thank you for aprons and common sense. We need a dose now please. Amen.
