other people's stuff

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!

Revelation 21:5

And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”
