Since I had already passed it, it took my mind a few moments to process it. "Oh, I've got to go back and check that out."
Boy, am I glad I did! This is what I saw on the circle back.
It definitely was some sort of cabinet. A little out of date, but we junkers just call that VINTAGE.
This front section was with it. A little worse for wear, but it was still there!
It had this big lid on it. Hmmm..... I wonder what's inside?
Well, it does lift up. Is that what I think it is????
Yup!! An old "phonograph"!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??? Someone had tossed out an old phonograph!
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but my wheels are spinning! I'm thinking some kind of cool "beverage" cabinet for starters.
So why did they throw it out? Did they think the cost of repairing it would be too great? Or was it just too much bother? Maybe they just wanted a newer model, or were tired of it, or maybe they no longer had a place for it? ...............They may have kicked it to the curb, but I'm glad they did. I scooped it up and am excited to have it!
Sadly, too many people feel like they've been "kicked to the curb" and are hurting from broken relationships. Is the cost of repair just too great? Is it too much bother? Or maybe people are searching for something new, or have tired of the people in their lives, or no longer have room for them..... So sad...... They seem to not even realize what they already have.
People can let us down, but God never will. He is always there for us, and we never have to worry that he might "kick us to the curb"....
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. -- Deuteronomy 31:8
