|Lost Coin Recovered|
If we get sick – it certainly is good to expect to recover our health.
If something gets lost – recovering it brings pure joy
After a financial loss we hope to recover!
If we have lost contact with an old friend, we may want to rediscover a friendship.
Remembering back many years ago; we lived in a home that had an upstairs bonus room across the front of the house. My daughter Becky, wanted this large area to be her bed room as it was the size of a small apartment. There was plenty of space for her bedroom furniture and on the other end a sitting area for a couch and television.
She purchased a lovely leather sofa that was extremely comfortable, especially for women with short legs. As time went by, she married and left the sofa with us.
By now the couch showed wear in fact the leather look was splitting and we either needed to consider the junk yard or to recover it. The frame was in excellent condition and the height and seat measurements were just perfect. Recover it was the decision!
My husband had at one time worked in an auto upholstery shop, so he knew something about covering seats. His staple gun would work well for our project.

We still have that old couch, and by now it has been recovered twice more.
Consider how our bodies wear and change, and we do our best to recover parts that are worn. We fix our teeth, exercise for tone, color our hair, and generally try to recover what we can of our youth.
My thoughts keep vaunting to the day that the Lord will recover us all, body soul and Spirit, and He will give us as Christians, not a rebuilt but a brand new body.
For now, let us recover our thinking, enlarge our vision and cast out all doubt and fear while we press on toward the mark of the High Calling.
