So why am I thinking about Rachel's prom dress these many years later?? Today I remembered I had removed the net underskirt from the prom dress and discovered it would make the perfect fishing net for use as a prop in children's church tomorrow. Note the corner where I was mending the net, just like James and John. :-)
Mark 1:16-20 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed him. When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
