IF I COULD PAINT A LOVELY PICTURE           THAT WOULD SHOW THE JOY THAT'S IN MY SOUL            I'D SIT BEFORE AN EASEL

AND PAINT UNTIL I REACHED MY GOAL

    WITH TEARS IN MY HEART

       My mother wrote the words to the poem that I will  be quoting you in this UPDATE.  It was the year after my husband and I graduated from Berea High School in 1945. Her name was GERTRUDE SANBORN. I've told you about her before. Perhaps, by now, you have her book of poems, WITH TEARS IN MY HEART (BFT #3196 @ $25.00 + $5.00 S&H ask for quantity prices). My mother was not a painter with brush and colors, but she was a word-smith. Not only that, she knew the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour and His Words, as well as any lay person you have ever met. Her poems reach right into the heart of the reader and leave a seed from God's truth planted there. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GIFT FOR A SPECIAL LOVED-ONE, GIVE THE PERSON THIS POEM BOOK. It will bring comfort, peace, and joy! NOT ONLY TO YOU but to others.

          Usually we ask for a gift of $25.00 for one copy of WITH TEARS IN MY HEART (BFT #3196); but I want you to have this special book at a special price! So send $15.00 + $5.00 for S & H and our BFT shipper will send it as soon as he can.

OUR UNSEEN TEARS

          Recently I went upstairs to our third floor to straighten up. We were having a missionary couple as guests and I had to clean out the baby crib for her little girl. Throughout the years, with no baby in it, I'd filled it with boxes of papers--mostly old letters. So I spent many hours up there immersed in the past. Saw my Great Grandmother Van Tassel’s baptismal certificate from 1884.  I also read Great Uncle George Fairbanks' review of my Sanborn heritage as he wrote my favorite aunt. He called her “Alcenia.”  I knew her as Aunt Florence. (Evidently her name was Alcenia Florence Sanborn Harrington--named after Grandma's sister.) I found out we were “English” with just enough "Irish" in us to give us a sense of humor.

          Anyhow, while there, I read some of my mother's words. I want to pass them on to you. She always told me that her mother, my Grandma Barker, always said that she had double tears. She had tears for my mother's griefs--for me in the hospital at age three, for my sister Beverly's retardation from birth, and for my other sister's untimely death at twenty. Then Grandma had tears for her granddaughters as they suffered and endured. Double cries for Jenny Barker! But, as I think of it, my grandmother's sorrow was tripled with the illness of our son.

          Grandmothers’ sorrows are real also. We are people, too! I know because I am one. Each person who has sorrows, sicknesses, or pain has to bear his or her own care; but when those we love are bent over with such griefs, we who love them hurt also. We cry unseen tears.

          Anyhow as I was alone upstairs, it was almost like I was on "holy ground." I found the following words written by Gertrude Sanborn on July 15, 1985–three years before she died. (That happens to be one of my granddaughters’ birthday.) Mother wrote about "The Line of Tears."

THE LINE OF TEARS

"TEARS ARE OUR UNSEEN SOBS FOR OUR DEAR ONES WHO ARE AFFLICTED."

IF I COULD SING A SONG LIKE ANGELS. I’D CLIMB THE HIGHEST HILL AND SING I’D SWELL THE MUSIC FORTH FOREVER

FOR THE THEME OF SONG IS MY KING.         I don't know about you, but I am at "sixes & sevens" most of the time. I feel like a bumblebee going from flower to flower, from one job to another, from one room to another, from one meeting to another, from one letter to another, from one mess to another, from one phone call to another, from one sickness to another, from one problem to another, etc. etc. etc. I seem to be in one constant spin most of the time! No wonder I'm tired! If it were not for the Lord Jesus Christ in my life, I think I would have spun out a long time ago. How about you?

THE LITTLE BROWN BAG

THANK YOU FOR YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT

I KEEP PRAISING GOD FOR HIMSELF, FOR YOU, & FOR IT!

          BEFORE I GET GOING ON THIS LETTER ANY MORE, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR RECENTLY HELPING US FINANCIALLY. Remember I asked you to help pay back the Bible fund from which we had to borrow money to pay our BIBLE FOR TODAY bills? Come to find out, the BFT had to borrow from other funds also. All of this is upsetting to me. (I guess that's why I'm not told the financial facts very much.) I just go merrily along doing the wash. looking at all the clutter, & having church in my house--not knowing. I suppose if the BFT were run from Naples, Italy, or Casablanca or Madagascar, someplace romantic instead of "Gay-friendly" Collingswood, people would get all excited about our being a "missionary" and press one hundred bills in our palms. Anyhow--I just thank you so much for helping! MANY OF YOU SAID, "HERE'S SOMETHING FOR "THE LITTLE BROWN BAG!" T-h-a-n-k  y-o-u !!

JESUS SAID

        . . . Thy father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. . . No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:18b‑21;24)

 

IF I COULD GIVE A GREAT ORATION AND MOVE MY AUDIENCE TO  TEARS ,

I’D STAND UPON MY FEET AND GESTURE

AND KEEP ON SPEAKING THRU THE YEARS.

THE LEAVING & CLEAVING PRINCIPLE

          Recently I made five radio programs for “JUST FOR WOMEN.”  I had to do most of them over because I have the hardest time remembering what to do now that I've moved up to the latest technology using CD's instead of audio cassettes. Last month I spoke on all five tracks on marriage (JFWCD#99 @ $15.00 + $4.00 S&H)--"The Leaving & Cleaving Principle" (Genesis 2:24); "Jesus & Moses on Marriage" (Matthew 19:4-6); "Marriage & Elderly Parents" (I Timothy 5:4,8); "Interfering In-laws" (Genesis 2:24); & "Forgiveness in Marriage" (Ephesians 4:32) Having been married for fifty-nine years, I think that I am familiar with the subject.

POST MODERNISM--WHAT IS IT?

          But I really wanted to tell you about the RADIO DISK I just completed last week. The first track is a reading (by me) of H. D. WILLIAMS, M.D., Ph.D.'s article from a recent DEAN BURGON SOCIETY NEWS on "POST MODERNISM--WHAT IS IT?" I have learned so much from it. I know you will, too. You can ask for the DBS NEWS (April-July/ 2007)--send a couple dollars for postage or get the radio CD--JFWCD#100 for a gift of $15.00 + $4.00 S&H. (An audio cassette is $4.00 + $2.00 S&H). I learned about the "both/and" philosophy. I was brought up on the "either/or” way of looking at life--"black & white" thinking. This POST MODERNISM article has helped me understand why people LIE to me--even so-called born-again Christians. I remember a few years ago some guests from a different continent promised they would be with us on a certain day and promised to be with others at the same time. Recently a gentleman signed a statement agreeing with a certain belief-system, and then in a few days manifested agreement in another belief system--negating his signed statement. How can anyone be trusted with such confusion?

IF I COULD WRITE A BOOK AS GREAT MEN.  I'D WRITE WITH INK OF PUREST GOLD.

I'D UNDERLINE THE WORD REDEEMER;

I 'D WRITE TILL EVERYTHING WAS TOLD.

WHAT'S WITH ALL THE CLEAVAGE?

          I really did not mean to go on and on about my “JUST FOR WOMEN” program--excuse me! Dr. Waite and I have been extremely disturbed at the looseness of dress that we have viewed on the Television with the women newscasters. It seems that they major in "cleavage" as well as the news.  Someday, it wouldn't surprise me  if these newscasters & anchor women dress like the old Roman woman--half covered on one side of their chest and completely exposed on the other. But more than that, I've noticed that Christian women are popping out all over. SO I'VE MADE FOUR RADIO PROGRAMS FOR WOMEN ON THE SUBJECT. Track #2: "WHY SO MUCH CLEAVAGE? (1 Peter 3:1-6); Track #3: "NAKEDNESS—WHAT IS IT? #1" (Genesis 3:7; Genesis 3:21); Track #4: "NAKEDNESS: WHAT IS IT? #2'' (Exodus 28:42); Track #5: "WOMAN, HOW DO YOU DRESS?" (1 Timothy 2:9)  I think it is time for Christian women to be on guard that we don't give the wrong message to the world when we pop out all over the place in our dress. What is your opinion?

          Pastor Waite had been preaching through the book of Colossians in our BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH which has met in our home for nine years in October.  I was taken with Colossians 4:5 as he was teaching us.

"WALK IN WISDOM TOWARD THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT,

REDEEMING THE TIME."

          What does "walking" really mean? I guess we don't need an explanation of the process, do we? We remember when our children were little and they learned to walk. Oh, how they wanted to "walk"! They did not care if they had their diapers on or if they had anything on, for that matter. (I miss those little children.) They wanted to get someplace fast, and were they ever proud when they got there! The Apostle Paul did not say "run" in wisdom, or "skip" in wisdom, or "swim " in wisdom. He said, "walk." I understand that walking is supposed to be the best exercise, especially when there is some speed to it. When I read this verse, I couldn't help thinking of all the women that I have seen lately "walking" around in various degrees of "nakedness." Are adult women and grown-up little girls so intent, like a toddler, at getting someplace that they do not realize they are not dressed in "wisdom," and are poorly representing the Lord Jesus Christ in that "walk"?

          A friend just called and said that I should put the “WHY SO MUCH CLEAVAGE?”, as well as the other radio programs on "nakedness," in print. Good idea. When will I do that?--between blood tests, and company every week end? --and the girl that has been cleaning my house has gone back to college! No wonder one of my friends my age opted for a nursing home!

A REVIEW OF THE DEAN BURGON SOCIETY--2007

          In July of 2007, the twenty-ninth annual meeting of the Dean Burgon Society was held at PASTOR J. P. RENO'S CHURCH in Hagerstown, MD. My husband has been the president and a major moving force in the DBS for all those years. If you were not there, you can view most of the speakers. Ask for BFT #3329 @$25.00 + $5.00 S&H. This is a"gift" to the ministry for the DVD’s. (We also have the meeting on VHS, and audio cassettes).  Dr. Waite's talk on "BIBLE FALSEHOODS OF MICHAEL SPROUL" was outstanding. He's writing a book answering SPROUL now between the phone calls and E-mails. VICE PRESIDENT BARNETT from Michigan gave the kick-off talk on "Believing God. " Another VICE PRESIDENT, DR. H. D. WILLIAMS, talked on "THE VOICE OF GOD." PASTOR MICHAEL MONTE makes us laugh, getting his points across in "COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL." MR. JAMES GRUMBLATT spoke on "RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH," while PASTOR RENO had us "LOOK AT OTHER LANGUAGE BIBLES." Dr. BOB DOOM’S "THE MESS IN THE MESSAGE" was excellent. DANIEL WAITE'S continuing series called "DBS—THEN AND NOW" was arresting! It was good to see & hear DR. JACK MOORMAN on a DVD from England. I must not forget PASTOR KEN RAINEY'S "A GOOD SOLDIER OF JESUS CHRIST, " or REV. DAVID HOLLOWOOD's continuing series on "TRUTH, " or MARK RENO'S "BIBLE VERSIONS--WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL?" DR. BRAININE was there, too, with a scholarly subject-- "THE EARLY DATE OF THE TRADITIONAL TEXT. "

          I would be remiss, if I did not mention THE DEAN BURGON WOMEN. We had excellent speakers. Two of them were LORETTA SPANGLER from Maryland who spoke on "THE DEFENSE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE" (Her written paper is BFT #3326 @ $3.00 +$2.00 S&H) and PATRICIA WILLIAMS who spoke about "SPURGEON’S LIFE & THE DOWNGRADE CONTROVERSY. " You can order the DBS Women's DVD #3330DVD1 ($15.00 + $5.00 S&H), audio cassette, or VHS.  Call the BFT office order line: 1-800-John 10:9.  Think it was one of the best Women's meetings we ever had.  

BUT I AM BUT A SIMPLE PERSON; I CANNOT PAINT, NOR WRITE, NOR SING,       SO, I'LL BOW MY HEART AND PRAY AND PRAISE HIM.         THUS TO CHRIST MY WITNESS BRING.

Under God’s wise care & strengthening grace (I Corinthians 15:10)
