~~~~ Freedom Isn't Free ~~~~

This Hymn was born during the American Civil War.
Julia Howe visited a Union Army camp on the
Potomac River near Washington D.C.
She heard the soldiers singing the song
"John Brown's Body" and was taken with
the strong marching beat.
                                      She wrote these words the very next day...                                  
                                                                  Julia W Howe, 1861.
Battle Hymn Of The Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I have read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
 Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
 Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
As ye deal with My contempters, so with you My grace shall deal,
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on.
 He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgement seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him, be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on.
 Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
 Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free;
While God is marching on.

 Home of the Free
Because of the Brave
To "you" our heroes
Sons, brothers, fathers, friends
who have paid the price
for our Freedom
We will never forget you
~~~ Thank You ~~~

Prayers for Missouri Tornado Victims

Sunday May 22, 2011
A devastating tornado  sweep thru Joplin, Mo
60 miles from my home in Crane.


As of today, Monday, 116 lost souls, 1200 injured, some are still missing.

 Mr B and myself were traveling home from Branson
Sunday evening after attending our Grand daughters First Communion.
A very blessed day soon turned into tradgey.

A very frightening moment as we met the wrath of this storm,
We were trying to beat the storm and were only about 5 minutes from home,
when we hit the black wall of wind....
My silent prayers soon turned into verbal Hail Mary's and Our Father's.
Next came the white wall of blinding rain and hail....
Our little Toyota had the arms of The Heavenly Father wrapped around it
as we speed to safety.... 

All your prayers are needed for the families that have lost
their home, their place of employment and most of all their love ones.

My infant department in Walmart today was almost completely
sold out of diapers, bottles, formula and clothing.
Churches and organizations are buying supply's for the victims...
I helped men who have never been in an infant department pick out
diapers, wipes, formula and baby cereal.
They kept asking me what else do I need to send....
Thank You Kind Neighbors....










Dear Heavenly Father I come before you this evening
thanking you for all the blessings of this day.
I ask you dear Father to comfort your children in Joplin,
Give them strength and courage,
Shelter them from this cold rainy  night,
Bring peace into their hearts,
 as they face another day may they feel Your Love.
I ask this in Your Holy precious Name, I pray.  Amen

Blue Fabric - Civil War & Feed Sack Patterns

Went on the search for Blues Fabric
Civil War, Calico and Feed Sack...
Lorna from Live Oak Primitive Peddler
was in need of blue civil war fabric,

Linda at Meadowbrook
Robin from Millstone Merccantile
Tonya at My Primitive Creations
also expressed a need for civil war and calico fabric.

I went to FM Fabric Store located in Springfield, MO
I took some pics of his selection of Civil War Era,
Calico prints and Feed Sack Patterns.
Sadly to say he does not have a website yet, you know this is Missouri...
However, after I told him of your needs,
he let me take all the pics I wanted.
There is so much fabric I didn't know where to start but stayed with
the blues and then added a few others.
Liberty Bell Fabric also comes in Blue....I should have bought some of this

Antique Treasurers
Aunt Gracie's
Feed Sack Patterns from the 30's and 40's


The fabric is $3.99 a yard with tax is $4.30 a yard.
I can purchase fabric for any of you who might be interested or
he said he could ship direct to you if he knew what you wanted.
I numbered the pics to make it more helpful in finding your selection.
