Kitty, Teddy, Bunny, Squirrel Feedsack ~ What a coup! (3) fantastic finds all in one day & in perfect condition. These are supposedly around 1940s ... I AM SO EXCITED!!! The feedsacks replaced barrels for shipping farm & food items. Originally feedsacks were plain linen colored w/advertising in ink the company's logo & product. Approximately c. 1925 colored feedsacks came into play, still stamped in ink the advertising. I found it very interesting that the manuf. even created patterns for dolls, animals & quilt blocks onto the 'sacks ... I found (2) most recently.

One day, a Man went to visit a church. He got there early, parked His car and got out. Another car pulled up nearby, the driver got out and said, " I always park there! You took my place!"The Visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young lady from the church approached Him and stated, "That's my seat! You took my place!" The Visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing. After Sunday School, the Visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to Him and said, " That's where I always sit! You took my place!" The Visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still He said nothing. Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the Visitor stood up, and His appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on His hands and on His sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed Him and called out, "What happened to You?" The Visitor replied, as His hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear fell from His eye, "I took your place."

~ WHY ~
I questioned 'WHY?!', He continued to listen. I turned a deaf ear, He spoke softly. I struggled & floundered, He continued to hold me up. I closed my eyes, He touched my heart. I looked for answers, He was patient. I begged for strength to endure, He gave me love. (Written by Marydon Ford)
