Out With the Old

Fiction By Madalyn Clare // 1/10/2019

Dusty paintings. Trash. Old porcelain dolls. Garbage. Musty white dress for a bride. Unneeded. Pictures of ladies in pearls. Vintage. She will not see worth beyond dollars and space in the attic. Grandma’s wedding ring. No longer with us; why retain antiquated contracts?
Stop! Please, people, think first: is it all really waste?


Maddie, this is so nostalgic

Maddie, this is so nostalgic and sad. :( Not that I don't like it - I love it <3. You managed to capture so much in just 53 words, and I'd say that's truly an accomplishment.

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

Thank you, Libby! I'm so

Thank you, Libby! I'm so glad you liked it! Yes, I didn't know how to not write 'waste' as nostalgic and sad... Waste is already a sad word. So much inspiration!
Again, thank you! God bless!

From the comfort of your own homes!

You rocked those 53 words!

You rocked those 53 words! Every time I read this, it's better than the last. Job well done, as always!

When I worship, I would rather my heart be without words than my words be without heart.
