A change in direction

I was at Big Lots the other day when I spotted this beauty.  
There she was calling my name for me to take her home and make her over.    

Don't get me wrong.  I'm as patriotic as they come but I outgrew the Americana phase a few years back.  My mind was whirling with the possibilities as I loaded her up in the trunk.  Paint her all white?  Maybe a simple whitewash?  Nope, all she needed was a change in direction.  

When I turned her around, she was perfect.

Excuse me while I get a little deep over a basket,
 but sometimes I just need to turn around and get my focus back on Jesus.  
And that's when I feel the most beautiful.


  1. Perfect post and sentiment!!! p.s. I'm hooked on Pinterest too!

  2. I love this!! I could really use one. Wonder if they still have those at Big Lots. Nice life application as well. :)


I love hearing from you!
