Mad Skillz

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. ~2 Corinthians 5:17

Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?
And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. ~Luke 15:3-6

Here's the dealio. Upon saying, "I'm yours Lord," things change. I mean, inside turns out. Upside turns down. Black turns white. Cold turns hot. Winter turns Spring.

Things change. It's just the crazy, incomprehensible, relieving way God does things.

Old becomes new. Broken becomes restored. Ashes become beauty.

Perhaps that's why I jadore this girl's vision for turning trash into treasure. She roves garage sales, thrift stores and flea markets, scouring for a castaway to give new life. Changes it forever. It's never ever ever the same. It's a She then proudly wears it for the world to see. Sound like anyone else we know? Check out her whimsical, clever, neato transformations! This girl's got mad skillz.

And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." And he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. ~Revelation 21:2-6

"I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you," declares the LORD Almighty.
~Haggai 2:23

Love it! What a creative idea and a great lesson on restoration. I never get tired of hearing and seeing how our Creator does the same for us!
