If you ever plan to do Spring cleaning and take a load of useless household crap to the landfill, please don’t tell my dad. He will most assuredly demand that you drop it off at his house. He throws nothing away and I think it pains him to see other people doing so.

He has become a master at transforming good-for-nothing, broken, run down, obsolete junk into something useful. Maybe not pretty, but always practical. It may sit around his building for years, but he will eventually repurpose it.

For instance, old louvered closet doors and shutters can be made into…

garden planting beds.

The same shutters can become a plant stand with interior storage.

Formerly a water fountain, now a flower pot.

This one…well you can just see for yourself.

Nope, NOTHING is wasted.

Isn’t it amazing that we serve a God so full of grace that He is willing to accept dirty, broken down, tossed aside people and transform us into new creations?


He really is a Master at it.
