Off With the Old, In With the New

Clothed In ChristPart One in a Series***** I don’t like getting rid of my old clothes.  I like them.  They’re comfortable.   Usually, I don’t get rid of something until someone else says something.  “Mom, did you know that was Jana’s shirt when she was a freshmen in high school?” She is now married with two kids.  […]
