Welcome friends, to both Friday's Finds and Five Minute Friday!
Friday's Finds : featuring a find of no particular value or sentiment, no reason or rhyme and yet, exactly for all those reasons just mentioned.
This morning while running errands; dropping my older daughter off at camp and heading toward the bank, I saw this older looking chair out by the side of the road. With a sign...
I knew I had an open van and room enough to "pick it up" and bring it home.
That is. If it wasn't broken. If it was. Would it be fixable?
I liked it, immediately, at my first glance.
But, I drove by...
thinking! If it's still there - on my way back, past. I'll stop.
You see... I struggle to stop - for free!
I worry. What will people think of me hauling off someone else's "trash"?
I wrestled. It could be my newest treasure!!!
I came home to discover this prompt for Five Minute Friday. The word is: belong!
How ironic, is that?
So, the chair is home!
Here is where it belongs.
Jayne and I looked it over, it appears fine.
We dusted it off.
And, now... I'm sitting on it. Writing to you... and all who read.
I got to thinking how this relates to me as a treasure of God.
I once was abandoned?
Left to ....whatever?
On the sidelines...
I just needed someone to pull over. To stop!
Set aside their cares and concerns and think of me!
I needed someone to carry me home!
So, do you!
As a part of God's family. We are accepted. Brought in!
We are HIS treasure...
It's a comfortable place to be.
A good sit. A good fit.
