OLD THINGS -- New USES

my Mother's old stew pot.....my mother is remembered for her love of flowers, plus many other things.....in our family we lovingly remember her beef stew: there was beef, carrotts, and seashell noodles inside this pot......so we kept this memory of 'my mom & her stew' ALIVE., by making a new use for an old pot....that would have died & vanished without use. So also, GOD takes us human beings, and gives us 'new life in CHRIST', WHEN we shed the OLD SELF & old life, and we also become new creatures in CHRIST.  II Corinthians 5:17   
May we all learn to see the beauty in old things, including old people. It takes a long time to get OLD, so look with respect at 'old things & old people'. There is 'great beauty' in being OLD, especially when we 'know' the Creator of our Souls !!!
SMILE, BEE HAPPY, BRING JOY to others, celebrate each day, cause This is the Day the Lord hath made !!!  PSALMS 118:24

A wonderful way to keep a memory alive ~ with two of the things your mother liked best ~ flowers and her stew pot! I have so many of my grandmother's things. They always remind me of her!
Blessings!
