Old or Vintage? — 36 Comments

  1. “Vintage”, I love it! What a great way to look at our lives as we get older and to meditate on the attributes of something that is aged but of great value, and with the Lord’s help pursue those attributes and virtues. Thanks for the post! 

  2. Wonderful post Barbie!  I too wonder what I will have left for those behind.  How will I be remembered.  But I am realizing that doing what God wants me to do each moment is what is important. What others think of it ultimately has no bearing on my eternal destiny or reward.  What does God think of it?   Thanks so much for sharing from your heart.

    • Oh yes, I want to please God first and foremost.  When others look at what I’ve done, I want them to see the hand of God all over it!  Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Oh, I love this! I’m with you, I want to always be worth something, no matter my age.  I’ve been trying to encourage my Dad with the fact that he still has his mind and his servants heart.  While his body has failed him, the Lord can still use him.  He is still struggling to wrap his head around that fact and I’m sure I would too if I were him.

    Blessings to you for a wonderful week!

  4. Barbie, I absolutely love what you’ve written here. Vintage. I never, ever thought about it that way. Lord, may we ALL be old, but worth something. May our lives count for something, and may we bring glory to You in all that we do.

  5. Beautifully written, sweet friend. I know you will have many wonderful stories to tell! Thank you for being such a sweet blogging friend. Blessings to you!

  6. Very much enjoyed this post – very beautifully written! I’m 20, but I feel the same sometimes, haha 😉  who puts milk in the closet? and forgets stuff that’s not written down? anyway – I completely agree… each of our lives should leave behind a legacy. 🙂 

    Thanks for faithfully stopping by my blog – I can’t tell you how MUCH I appreciate your comments!
    God bless! Hope you have a bright and blessed weekend!

  7. Beautiful post.  I too, wonder the exact same thing.  What kind of life will my story tell and will I have any kind of impact?  Well said.  I am going to bookmark this one.  🙂 

  8. LOVE THIS! I love Vintage stuff. and People! Your son is brilliant and you are too. I pray the same thing for myself…great post!

  9. Barbie,
    I HAVE to join in on this one Friday! Love the idea, and I love your writing. You have such a beautiful way with words, and such a beautiful heart. I love getting older (minus the wrinkles and additional gray hairs, lol!) and how things just become clearer. Wouldn’t it be great if we knew what we know now when we were 20? 🙂
    Hugs to you!

  10. Beautiful! And such a unique way to think of growing older! I think this should be a prayer for all of us! Thank you for sharing your wonderful heart with all of us… you are touching many, right this very moment!

  11. “Out of the mouths of babes: vintage.”
    I love it! That has a much more solid, clear, deep ring to it than “old”. I have never thought of myself as a vintage heirloom, and I love the analogy.
    Thanks for the fresh perspective.

  12. Loved this, Barbie! Loved it. 
    “I pray that I would be known as my smart young son said — “vintage”.  Old, but still worth something.” 
    Amen! Bless you friend, and Happy Anniversary… I meant to comment the other day but never made it over here! 😉
