Where are they now?
Nora Dilling

Born Nora Lantzy, Nora has been married to George Dilling since Sept. 18, 1938. She and George are the parents of seven children, six of whom are living. Nora has focused her life around her husband, children, 12 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Choosing to be a stay at-home wife and mother, Nora used her faith in God as a catalyst in how she raised her children and conducted her daily life. In her younger years, Nora taught quilting and liquid embroidery, and, in addition, she also taught piano to youngsters...and as she says in a previous article, "Teaching piano was more of a hobby than a livelihood; my biggest rewards were working with children who appreciated music, and watching them put their talents to work in their churches, regardless of which church it may be."

These days, getting the Dilling family together can be difficult as they are scattered far and wide: Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas, Mississippi, and Florida. But, wherever the Dilling children go, they take with them the love, values, and stability given them by their positive role model parents. In a written statement, one of their children states; "My parents, after much coaxing, moved here to the Pittsburgh area to be closer to family, and my parents are very much loved by neighbors and the friends they have made." Anyone wishing to send greetings can find Nora at: geonora@3rdm.net.

Update: Mrs. Dilling passed away November 27, 2009 at age 89. Her obituary can be read here.

Hitting bottom

A woman was trying hard to get the catsup out of the bottle. During her struggle, the phone rang so she asked her four-year-old daughter to answer the phone. "It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother. Then she added, "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle."

Thought for today

One of the monks went off to the city to sell his manual work, and seeing a naked beggar, he was moved by compassion and gave him his own habit. The poor man went and sold it. When he heard what he had done, the old monk was very annoyed and repented of having given him the habit. That night, Christ appeared to the old man in a dream. He was wearing the habit and said to the old man, "Do not grieve, for see, I am still wearing that which you have given me."
