This is a before and after project... a re-purposed item that has a use after being broken.
We had a pretty metal hose holder which I liked and it looked nice... until it broke.
This is what was left.... it is sharp and needs to be replaced. The other part was thrown away as it was "no good."
My son groaned, "Oh Mommmmm..... it's trash... can't we throw it away?"
Well, I throw broken things away, but this... had potential, even if he couldn't see it.
I removed the metal pieces until it was uniform and I thought it looked pretty good. It could be a wall hanging for inside or outside........
Then I figured out that it would also work as a frame for photography, so I tried a few things....
So many possibilities...
Sherlock wasn't too thrilled, but he posed anyway....
It was just a little thing.... a little re-purposing project.... not a big deal, but it was fun to "save" that item and turn it into something else that I find useful.
I'm so glad that God also does re-purposing as He salvages our lives and turns something broken into something pleasing to Him... something that honors Him. What a blessing that He didn't just throw us out like trash.... even though on our own, that's all we are.... What a blessing that His work of salvation is given to us if we accept it.
I'm so glad not to remain that "old creature" that I was... and that He has re-made me into a "new creature". I hope you also know Him as your Lord and Savior. What a God we serve. :) Thank you for visiting...
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
