Jesus is Our Provider

{From the Archives of Connie's Letters, March 2013.}

Part 1

Dear Mothers, Good Morning.. i have been listening to the 1940 Songs on the
Internet.."Pistol Packin Mama" by Jimmie Rogers..Lately i feel so much that
times are changing..How many times when Jim and i were apart did i think
about the Depression era Mothers of the 1930s..? i read anything i cud find
on them.. The writings and recipes gave me courage ..i figured if they cud
do it i cud do it too..And of course even tho i was poor i sure had more
then the Depression era Mothers had..They had a drought that lasted for 3
yrs..The only gardens that survived were the ones planted by a river or
some other supply of water..It seems thru the yrs the Lord has given me
alot of knowledge as to how to make it during Hard Times..But then my
own personal Hard Times have held me back.. But ya know Mothers my
deepest desire is to be JUST AS RADICAL in the next 10 yrs as i was when i
was young... i think more then ever Mothers at home..we need to be
listening to the Holy Spirit within us..Yesterday i had to have some Blood
tests done..But i just had one done as the co pay was so high..Wudnt ya
think Medicare wud pay for it..? More and more with this medical stuff i
can see we are all on our own.. We better have faith in God..And anything
that comes between us and God we had better give it up..These dopey women
on tv livin with this guy and that one? It warps your mind to do that
stuff..To live a holy life is the way to prosperity..Wisdom is the
stability of the times...Study Wisdom in Proverbs and in other parts of the
Bible.


Part 2


The Lord will supply all of our needs according to His riches in Glory..Ya
know the Lord taught me this many yrs ago in the Hard Times.. We learn
during the Hard times ...He gets our attention.. as in no other time..
Mothers we have to have clean hearts before the Lord.. we need teachable
spirits.. Years ago when the Lord told me to get this house..wow what a
time..But i obeyed the Lord..This whole house was fallin down it seemed.. i
was raised in a nice home like the Leave it to Beaver Show..i wasnt used to
living with lack of any kind..But the Lord had me buy this house..Jim and i
were separated right after i got the house..i was pregnant and had one
child..Oh mercy what a riot.. But each morning the Lord wud tell me to
clean the house and make a home for my children..and my husband even tho at
the time he was not here..i wud sit in the livingroom and pray..And i wud
watch lightening go thru the dining room..flashes of light..? Well the fuse
box evidently had shorts in it..and it was on the wall in the kitchen..i
had 4 fuses in the box..One fuse was for the root cellar in the
basement..one was for the light on the front porch and the other 2 was for
everything else in the house..So the fuses shorted out about once a
month,,i cudnt wash and iron and have a light on at the same time..So the
fuse box was close to the ceiling in the kitchen,,The ceiling was 10 feet
tall..So in the dark with a flash lite i had to climb the ladder and take
out the burned out fuse and replace it with the good one..And the dang
thing wud shock ya..So i tightened the fuse with my wooden cooking spoon
and that way i didnt get shocked..well i had prayed about it every day.. i
didnt have the money to get an electrician..So any how the phone went
out..Well the telephone repair man came and fixed the phone..And while the
phone guy was here the lightening shot thru the diningroom as if right on
time..And the phone guy says "Oh i have a fuse box at home and i know how
to fix it.".So he got up there to my fuse box and fixed it and it stayed
fixed for yrs until Jim was healed and and we got the house rewired.Jimmy
my son at about 8 yrs old cudnt get a cord out of the wall socket up in my
bedroom? So he took some big scissors and cut the cord off of the plug
in..Wellll that sure shut all the lights out..That boy kept me busy..But ya
know i always believed that Phone repairman was an angel that God sent in
answer to my fuse box prayers..Oh Wow if not for the Lord i wudnt have made
it..love connie
