One Man's Trash...

I wasn't actually dumpster diving.
I was just taking out the trash
and found this in the dumpster.
It was clean and right on the top.
It was some sort of school math
cirriculum tote. I saw immediatey
there was potential for this cart.
It just needed someone to love it
and give it a new direction.
Kind of like us sometimes.This was going to be just right
for my traveling paint gear.
Sometimes I paint at a clients location
and my favorite -
to paint during worship.
I grabbed my paints and
embellised the top.
It is just the right size for my dropcloth,
a bin for brushes, a bin for paint,
a roll of paper towels, several containers
for water, and a pocket for
promotional materials.
It's just like it was made for me.

I covered the old logo with gesso
and a couple of coats of black.
A new look, a new purpose,
redeemed from the pit.
That will preach!!!

Be assured that if you are feeling like a
failure, feeling unappreciated,
tossed aside, or no longer useful -
it could be that you are at the
beginning of a new phase
and purpose for your life.
You may feel that people have
given up on you but
God never gives up on you!
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone,
the new has come!
