ANTIQUE childs WOVEN LEATHER SANDALS w leather soles LACED- no sale! yet
I never do this – never! However, this time I’m going to start with the “Condition Report.”
Do not wear them on your feet. Do not wear them when you eat. Do not put them on a doll. Do not use them ever, not at all.
When I discovered them in a local estate, wrapped in old, browned-out tissue, I fell in love immediately. Then I picked up one of them and quickly realized the meaning of a word my mother used, “brickle.” The word isn’t used much nowadays, but it has a meaning and there are associated implications.
The products recommended cost about fifty dollars, and I’ll probably never use any of them again, but it was well worth the money.
You still aren’t allowed to touch them, but now they will at least withstand a mild breeze.
Let’s take Luke 3:16 as an example. The ESV Bible reads: “John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
Below is the Gullah translation. (I included verse 15 also – just for context.)
Gotta go paint my yacht. See ya.
PS – Did I mention to you that these sandals are shot – maybe even worthless? Well, don’t come crying to me if you think differently. I’ll pack them as gently as I’d pack a fairy’s soul or a little girl’s sigh, so don’t worry about that part.
