Out of necessity comes great blessing!

My mother passed away a several years ago. One of my parents possesions that I took was an old china hutch that was in need of refinishing and some tender loving care. I stored the hutch in my garage until recently. Out of necessity to do some remodeling in the garage to make a room for Daniel I needed to decide what to do with the hutch. Two friends from church, Ken and Norm, both excellent woodworkers volunteered to restore the hutch. This afternoon, they brought the hutch over. WOW!!! What a transformation, it truly is amazing! What a blessing! Out of the necessity to clear out the garage, came the great blessing of a restored china hutch. We truly are a blessed family. Norm and Ken, Thank you both so much for blessing us. I know my parents would be thrilled with what you have done with the hutch. Thank You and God Bless You!

Oh my gosh! I recognized the hutch right away. I remember all the little treasures and pictures they had stored in it for so many years, and all the holidays spent around the hutch & table in the kitchen. It really looks fabulous. They did a wonderful job of restoring it - also noticed Dad's picture sitting there, too. Think Mom would have been thrilled with the transformation. What an especially loving gift it was for Ken & Norm to give. Can't wait for Joe to see this picture - he's out of town but will be back home tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Love & Blessings,

Sue, How good our God is to bless us with wonderful things even when we are walking in very hard times. The hutch is so pretty. I can't wait to see the picture of Luke when Jesus restores him!
Blessings, Shane, Julie and Children

Wow, it's beautiful! What an extra blessing from the Lord! I'll continue praying for little Luke, and God bless you all.

What an incredible job Ken and Norm did. Oh, if that kitchen hutch could talk the stories it would tell. What a wonderful thing that now it has a new life in your home and will build up new memories upon the old. I agree that Mom and Dad would be thrilled by how it looks and that it is being used and enjoyed.
Love, as always, Pam, Hal, Carl and Paul

Dear Sue, the Lord continues to knit our hearts together. To draw us all close together as we all lift up our hearts for Luke and your whole family. I saw this picture of your china hutch and I started to cry.
My grandmother who past away in 1998 left me her china hutch that my dad bought her. It is in my dining room.
I know this is simple... but with our children's ages and your oldest and my oldest being at college and our little boys and your little boys. I KNOW without a doubt that God brought your family into our lives. You are on one coast and we are on the other but our love reaches across the U.S as we pray for your family!!! I know you will love your hutch as I love mine!
your GA friends,
