Tide Makes My Clothes Smell Good.

I asked Ed, and Isaac to get some more Tide. I smelled the freshly, washed clothes, and they had a nice smell. It was a clean smell. I grew up when Mom had a ringer, washing machine, and we had a dryer that stayed in the upstairs of the house. We lived in Kentucky, and we three, girls were all under six years old. Mom had her hands full with three little ones, and Dad had a full job besides family.

We lived in Kentucky, right after Seminary days. I still remember when my memory clicked on, and I decided to save all of them from then on. I faintly remember Atlanta, Georgia days when we lived there. Dad was in school, and he had a big motorcycle which could carry us girls in a buggy on the back. The day we moved was my first memory. I didn’t eat my lunch, and Dad, and Mom gather my older, sister, and the baby in the car, and left me to finish what I started. I ran to the door, and they were leaving. I finished, and ran to the door yelling, “I’m through!”

I was growing up, because Mom didn’t want two, babies. We moved to Kentucky where Dad had 9 churches to watch over, and at times we drove our jeep up the bed of the creek to get to a church. One church had bullet holes all through it. We asked, “Dad, what happened to that church door?”

He said, “The people didn’t like the last preacher.”

We were quiet, and then we started singing.
“When Christ is in the vessel, we can laugh at the storm. Laugh at the storm, laugh at the storm. When Christ is in the vessel we can laugh at the storm, as we go down the creek.”

I love to paint,write,make up my own recipes, and sing. I write poetry, songs, and books. I began to paint, because my sister left me art supplies, and I needed to use them. She encouraged anyone to paint.Then she died of cancer. I began to paint more, because I was grieving over her death. As I painted I came out of my gloom, and grief. She was a wonderful, artist. I continue to paint. Recently I have been writing my, fourth, novel. It is about life for a couple who live in a small, town. There is one, adventure after another, in this book. I make no apology for writing Christian novels. I believe there is an audience for Christian literature that is written in this century! My prayer is that after reading it, people will want to read the Word of God, and commit to Christ. I pray over the text, and type. My son encouraged me to join Word Press.com, and he set up my first blog which we called Rubies Corner's Blog. I have other blogs which I have left open, but the largest, blog at this point is Rubies Corner's Blog. My book is being written on rubiesdonovels which is another blog. I am currently writing my fourth, book.. I hope to publish eventually. I am a retired school teacher. My husband is pastor of Christ Fellowship in Ringgold, Georgia. We have been there over thirty, years. I write about my church, and about life from a Christian, perspective as a pastor's wife. Life has become very, interesting, and busy since I resigned from my last job. I consider myself retired, but I paint frequently. My Gravatar shows one, painting that I did several years ago. The plant cost over thirty dollars. I painted on this one for a while. I have another site that has more art work. It is on deviantArt under RSC3. I have over 200 drawings there. Some were finished on the computer with the mouse. Enjoy.
