The Long Beautiful Brown Satin Sash

The Long Beautiful Brown Satin Sash
Told to me by: Jimmy Brooks

Once there were two sisters who loved each other dearly. What one had and the other did not, they shared. Their father’s mother lived with them and much to the sorrow of the family, she passed away. Much of what she owned went to their mother. With the exception of a few personal items she had, the rest went to the homeless. In her personal items she only had one of each. The girls were given the opportunity to choose what they wanted. The oldest girl chose a long beautiful brown satin sash which she grew to love dearly. On Monday she wore her long beautiful brown satin sash with her blue skirt. On Tuesday, she wore her long beautiful brown satin sash with her red skirt. On Wednesday, she wore her long beautiful brown satin sash with her yellow skirt. On Thursday, she wore her long beautiful brown satin sash with her orange skirt. On Friday, she wore her long beautiful brown satin sash with her white skirt. On Saturday, she doubled her long beautiful brown satin sash and wore it with her white t-shirt and bluejeans. As you may have already guessed, on Sunday it was worn with her Sunday best.
One school day, the older girl did not feel well. Her mother told her she did not have to go to school that day and pass her germs around to the other children. Her younger sister had been eyeing the long beautiful brown satin sash for a very long time. Each time she wanted to ware it, her older sister had it on. While, her sister was sick in bed, the younger sister wore it to school without asking.
On the playground, a bully started a fight. During the fight, the long beautiful brown satin sash was torn. What was she to do? It was a keepsake. Her grandmother had it for years. After school, she went to town to purchase another beautiful brown satin sash just like her sister’s long beautiful brown satin sash. Unfortunately, she could not. That pattern was no longer in stock. The only recourse she had was to throw the sash away and tell her sister she did not know what happened to her long beautiful brown satin sash.
The week passed and her sister was well enough to go to school. How could she face her sister and tell her that lie. She confessed to her parents what she had done. Her parents told her they had been watching her all the time. They were waiting on her to confess. They had gotten the long beautiful brown satin sash out of the garbage and repaired it.
Just like our heavenly Father. When we confess our sins, he is quick to forgive us of our sins and cast them in to utter exile. Her parents said her older sister had gone to school waring her long beautiful brown satin sash never knowing her sash had been damaged.
