The pin, the framed miniature 'Lords Supper' and Minnie's Bible are Family Heirlooms passed from Mother to Daughter. First treasured and saved by Minnie's daughter Thelma, and now by Thelma's daughters...my sisters and me.
As 'The Plate' was being passed, Minnie pulled her hanky from her wrist where it was tucked around her narrow stretchy watch band. From one corner of the hanky, she untied a knot and out came a small stack of coins. She handed me a dime and a few pennies.
The Plate was passed over me to Minnie and together we dropped our 'Hanky Savings' in the Easter Sunday Offering Plate.
Forever more, my grandmother's knotted hanky offering comes to mind as 'The Offering Plate' is passed. Her hanky collection still holds one hanky with a 'Knotted Coin Corner'.
