Nana’s Saying is Passed Down to Generations

Do you have a memory or saying or habit that has been passed down from generation to generation?

In our family there is a story behind Stubbing Your Toe.

When Dixie Lee Vernon Fugate (1858-2016) was a child she had a really bad day. She said a prayer asking if Jesus really loved her. She asked that he show her by some sign or action. Almost as soon as she ended the prayer she stubbed her toe. She said, “Jesus Loves Me!”

From that moment on, every time she or someone around her stubbed their toe, she proclaimed “Jesus Loves You!”

This story came to mind on Sunday, May 19, 2019. I had come out of the shower and was moving toward the closet to get my suit for church when I cracked my toe against a chair. My first thought was, “Jesus Loves Me!”

I find myself passing this along to my children and grandchildren.

Do you have a similar story or event that you can pass on?

If so, take every opportunity to pass it on to your friends, immediate family and your posterity.

AND be sure to Write It Down.
