Grandma Ida and the Miracle of Feeding the Multitude

Contributor: BarbaraLeishman Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Following the death of my grandfather, Moroni Lorenzo Phillips, my grandmother, Ida Callan Phillips lived a very simple life in a small farm house in Dayton, Idaho. She always grew a garden and preserved the harvest consisting of berries, beans, corn and other vegetables. She also maintained some chickens and for a few years a couple of cows. She used the resources of this small farm to sustain herself. There was by no means an abundance, but she had enough. My family lived in Salt Lake City, Utah about 120 miles south of where she lived. My Uncle, Perry Phillips and his family lived close and did a great job of looking out for grandma. My Aunts, Ella Kent, Donna Carlson and Connie Bunn, and their families lived in relative close proximity as well and diligently watched things at grandmas place as well. My family made the two hour trip to grandma's house two or three times a year. I remember one of those visits more so than others, probably because I was then old enough to appreciate what was happening. I later learned that this kind of thing happened on regular basis. My immediate family consisting of me, my father, mother and sister arrived at grandmas about mid morning one summer Saturday. Grandma almost immediately stepped into action. Our arrival was the signal to let the other families know that it was time to come over to her house. Within a couple of hours the small farm house was filled with twenty or more people. Grandma of course felt obligated to put a large meal on the table for everyone. My uncle and aunts brought a few things, but the miracle of feeding this large number of people fell to grandma to perform. She went into the yard, killed a few chickens. Dressed them, and soon had several fry pans going with the best fried chicken. Somehow a few loaves of fresh baked bread appeared. Bottles of berries and vegetables were served and this family gathering ate beyond being full. I wondered how all this food had appeared out of such a meager pantry, in a very short period of time. I soon realized that Grandma Ida had this power of performing the miracle. There are two lessons to be learned from her example: First, grandma always gave to others. Her life although simple included sharing whatever she had with others. Secondly, she was resourceful. There was always some kind of bottled fruit and vegetables in her pantry. They were available for her to rely on and for her to share with others. Grandma Ida was a remarkable woman! David S. Phillips

Life timeline of Perry C. Phillips

Perry C. Phillips was born on 1 Aug 1920
Perry C. Phillips was 19 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Perry C. Phillips was 25 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Perry C. Phillips was 37 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Perry C. Phillips was 49 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
Perry C. Phillips was 57 years old when Star Wars is released in theaters. Star Wars is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas. It is the first film in the original Star Wars trilogy and the beginning of the Star Wars franchise. Starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, and Peter Mayhew, the film focuses on the Rebel Alliance, led by Princess Leia (Fisher), and its attempt to destroy the Galactic Empire's space station, the Death Star.
Perry C. Phillips was 61 years old when The first launch of a Space Shuttle (Columbia) takes place: The STS-1 mission. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program. Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. In addition to the prototype whose completion was cancelled, five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station. The Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds.
Perry C. Phillips was 74 years old when The Rwandan genocide begins when the aircraft carrying Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana and Burundian president Cyprien Ntaryamira is shot down. The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a genocidal mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda by members of the Hutu majority government. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994, constituting as many as 70% of the Tutsi population. Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed. The genocide and widespread slaughter of Rwandans ended when the Tutsi-backed and heavily armed Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) led by Paul Kagame took control of the country. An estimated 2,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Hutus, were displaced and became refugees.
Perry C. Phillips died on 27 Aug 2007 at the age of 87
