Repurposed Furniture and Repurposed People

    This morning I received a lovely comment on my Simple Easter Decor  post from Lori over at Color it Simple. She was dropping by to take a look around and become a follower of Shabby Sweet Tea.  I sure am glad I followed her back because she has a lot of great things going on at her blog! If you have an extra minute, read her RE Words post, which really caught my attention. Lori draws a beautiful comparison between repurposed furniture and repurposed people. This post struck a soft spot in me because recently one of my personal goals has been to love people where they are at regardless of their past or current situation. We just never know what a person's life is like behind closed doors and it is not our job to judge or deny forgiveness.
At the end of Lori’s post, she asks “What are you thankful for?”. I would have to say, I am thankful for His forgiveness, family and friends, people reading my little blog, that my new cowgirl boots have shipped and so much more.

So smile, love and just let go….

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
