The past couple of days I have been with my mother-in-law and my mom at garage sales and second hand stores. Busy buying other people's stuff!
I love thrifting - things others consider useless I can think of a 1,000 uses for! That's probably NOT a good thing.
I filled suitcases with yarn for the orphans to use for the knitting that they love to do so much. I found bulletin board items that will be perfect for the new Cambodian learning center.
I saw tea pots and coffee cups and all sorts of things that would be helpful for serving in the new Coffee House at Crossroads. And rugs and try-pods that our son will love.
It makes a lot of sense to buy old things instead of new when possible.
I guess I am a re-cycler of sorts.
I know one thing for sure, I am recycled.
A sinner in need of a Savior - used for a totally different purpose than
I every thought possible. Surrounded by family and friends who encourage and help to identify different ways that this sinner can be part of Kingdom building.
A new beginning everyday!
