Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Matthew 6:19

Down around back, behind the barn, is the "burn pile" where we drag all the sticks and brush that collect up when we attempt to clean the grounds. At the back of the pile is My Darling's metal collection, items pulled from the ashes, perhaps headed for a recycling center someday. Makes me think a bit of the sermon I heard years ago where someone said, "It's all gonna burn." It was a son talking to his father who was fuming about the scratch on his new car. Yup, at the end of the line that's about how it goes.Thankfully, at the end of life's line there is also "Recycling Center" where He makes all things new.

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 
Revelation 21:5


  1. Need that "all things new" now sometimes don't we. James

    1. Yes, and I am more grateful each day for it.

  2. love the 'all things new' part! :)

  3. Some days I am more ready for the recycle bin than I care to admit. :S
