A Surprise Shower
Thursday afternoon as I was resting, it began to shower a bit and then a bit faster and faster, until it poured, not from above, but by the entering of loving friends and sister workers of our W. M. S. The afternoon was joyously spent in exchanging thoughts, after which I was showered again, by these friends placing beautiful ans useful gifts upon my lap. I cannot express the words the joy and gladness this brought to me. May the Lord bless every one that tendered in this loving kindness. Sincerely, Mrs. Allen Mabry.
