Tic Tacs were introduced in 1969 and were originally named “Refreshing Mints,” but the name was changed to reflect the sound of the mints shaking in their container. The original flavors offered were orange and fresh mint. Each 1oz Tic Tac box contains about 36 Tic Tacs. October 10 is National TIC TAC day.  ORANGE you glad you now know more about Tic Tacs!   Christine

    SHOWERS OF BLESSING

     

      1. There shall be showers of blessing:
        This is the promise of love;
        There shall be seasons refreshing,
        Sent from the Savior above.

         

        • Refrain:
          Showers of blessing,
          Showers of blessing we need:
          Mercy-drops round us are falling,
          But for the showers we plead.

         

      2. There shall be showers of blessing,
        Precious reviving again;
        Over the hills and the valleys,
        Sound of abundance of rain.

     

      1. There shall be showers of blessing;
        Send them upon us, O Lord;
        Grant to us now a refreshing,
        Come, and now honor Thy Word.

     

      1. There shall be showers of blessing:
        Oh, that today they might fall,
        Now as to God we’re confessing,
        Now as on Jesus we call!

     

    1. There shall be showers of blessing,
      If we but trust and obey;
      There shall be seasons refreshing,
      If we let God have His way.
