       The above are the 7 things that you should never, ever take for granted. This is from THECREATIVEHEALTHYFAMILY.COM

Do You Remember These?

This idea was on Facebook, but the pictures on it would not copy and paste. I went on Google and Pinterest to get these pictures. Some of the pictures are out of order. I had a hard time finding some that would copy and paste. The pictures are 1. a baby diaper on a baby.  2. a pair of rubber pants and folded diapers. 3. baby with rubber pants on. 4 .diapers not folded yet  5. diapers hanging up on the clothes lines  6. clothes pins  7. different kind of clothes lines  8.  a wringer washer  9. showing just a wringer  10. folding clothes dryer rack. 11. pulley clotheslines

Do you remember these things? They were still in use back in the early 60s. I know this, because my Mother still used cloth diapers and rubber pants, when my youngest brother was born. There were diaper pails that you put the wet ones in until there was enough to wash in a washing machine. The worst part was having to first clean the messy ones by dunking them up and down in the toilet until all the mess was off of them. Then they just went in the pail with the wet ones.

When the pail got full, you had to wash them.You could end up having to do a load of diapers every day sometimes. Usually it was every other day. Washing clothes wasn’t as easy then as it is today. You had to use a wringer washer. First you would put the diapers or clothes in the washer and fill it about 2/3 of the way up. next you would wash them however long you felt you needed to to get the clothes or diapers clean. Then you would drain the water out of the washer and wring out the clothes or diapers. As they were going through the wringer, you would catch them on the other side of the wringer and put them in a pail or a basket. You had to be very careful when putting them through the wringer so that you didn’t get your hands caught in thew wringer. I got my hands caught more times than one. After wringing them out and emptying the water out of the washer, you would put them back in the washer and fill it back up to rinse them. Repeat the cycle above and when done wringing them out again.

After finishing wringing them out,you would go outside and hang them on the clothes lines with clothes pins to dry. There were clothes lines that you had to dig a hole, put the metal pole the hole and then fill the remaining part of the hole with cement. The poles came with between 3 and 5 hangers to put the lines on to hang them up. There were poles that you could put under each line so that they would not drag the ground when the heavy wet clothes were first hung on the lines. If you lived in an apartment building with more than one floor, there were pulley clothes lines. You would hang one item of clothes, then move the pulley to bring up some more line to hang the next item of clothes on, and continue the process until all the clothes were hanging up, or you ran out of clothes line. To remove the clothes, of course you took them off in the reverse of what you hung them up. In the winter you would hang them on a wooden rack that folded up when not in use.

I Googled as to when disposable diapers first came on the market, and this is what I got…”During the 1950s, companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Kendall, Parke-Davis, Playtex, and Molnlycke entered the disposable diaper market, and in 1956, Procter & Gamble began researching disposable diapers.

Even though you can’t go out to a store and buy them now days, you can still order them on Amazon. I know this because II still use the diaper pins on stuff because they stay shut better than the plain metal ones do.

Raise Up President Trump In Prayer

This is from Facebook.

John Colbaugh

Just stop for a minute and look at this photo. This is NOT a political post by any means. This is simply something that everyone should stop and think about.
Can you imagine the weight he must be feeling right now? When he signed up for this role (without pay) he did it for Americans. He didn’t do it for the fame or glory, he had all that. He was willing to take on whatever, but the magnitude of what we’re currently experiencing has got to be paralyzing. And to some, NOTHING he does is ever right or good enough.
Do you ever wonder how he must be dealing with it all?….when his head finally hits the pillow at night after press conferences and meetings, constantly trying to defend himself and protect our country.
Does he break down and cry from all the pressure?
Is he scared and confused?
Is he even able to sleep?
Can he shut his mind off at all?
Or does he lay there and talk to God all night praying for strength and answers?
Whether he’s making you proud or not, look at this photo and ask God to soften your heart just a litte bit and lift this man up in prayer. He needs them right now more than ever. He is carrying the weight of OUR country on his shoulders and I don’t think anybody could or would be doing a better job than he is.
Feel free to share this post and remind everyone to be kind and to pray for President Trump and for the entire world 🙏🏼❤️

Put God Back Where He Belongs

I think that one of the worse things that could happen to public schools is when Madeline O’Hare won the lawsuit to have anything and everything religious and having to do with God or Jesus, taken out of the schools. To me that was he beginning of the demise of America’s greatness. The airwaves were allowed to put sexually explicit things, vulgar things, cursing, just about anything bad you can think about was allowed over the air waves and on TV. Schools were no longer allowed to read the Bible, Pledge Allegiance to the American Flag, or sing the National Anthem. Funny this God can’t be taught or spoken about in schools, but Muslim faith can be freely taught ion public schools. There is something very wrong with this picture.

About that same time the law was passed to allow women to have abortions. They were allowed to kill a beating heart by calling the baby tissue, and fetus. Words that did not come close to sounding like baby or human being. So if you didn’t want the child you were carrying you could kill it by calling it an abortion. But if you wanted the baby and someone hit you, kicked you, threw you down a flight of stairs, or any other thing that killed your baby, it was considered MURDER. Either way an innocent baby was killed, but since there was a law allowing abortions, it was OK.

Well, I think it’s about time for God to show His displeasure with us, and He’s doing it in a way that everybody can see. America needs to wake up and put God back where he belongs in our lives. After all, our great country was founded on Religious Freedom so we could worship how ever and wherever we wished and not have any problems. And look at where we are today. America has the highest death rate of any country in the WORLD. That’s not exactly anything to sneeze at.

I’ll stop here. But I hope you get the picture.

John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

Both Presidents were shot in the head.

NOW IT GETS REALLY WEIRD-

Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln.

Both were assassinated by Southerners.

Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

Both assassins were known by their three names.

Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

NOW HANG ON TO YOUR SEAT-

Lincoln was shot at the theater named “Ford.”
Kennedy was shot in a car called “Lincoln” made by “Ford.”

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

AND HERE’S THE KICKER-

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
