Dumpster Diving for Furniture

A while back I was in desperate need of a new dresser. Caroline and all her baby things had invaded. Well, LG was out of work and I was out of money. I made it a matter of prayer.

Look what God brought to me. It was on the side of the road in someone’s garbage within the week. Dumpster diving is a favorite past-time. (I learned how to do it right in Tennessee. If we ever wanted to get rid of anything, all we ever had to do was put it at the end of our driveway. It would be gone in a matter of hours.)

One man’s trash is truly another man’s treasure.

I will treasure this dresser forever.

Not only because it’s a beautiful antique but because it’s a constant reminder that God is mindful of all of his children.

  2. What a great find. I think I'll go look around today–a beautiful Saturday. I had a super funny dream about you, Abagial and Sophia! HOpe that you are all doing well.
