Old friend rediscovered
The dust is off
The hands are rusty
But the strings are true.
How many times we lose track of something in the crazy busy pace of life. The dust accumulates, and we forget. There is such joy in the rediscovering of something that was lost.
Be it friend, family, hobby, faith. The dusting off reveals the beauty of the once was and still can be.
“You have forsaken your first love…..repent and do the things you did at first.”- Revelation 2:4-5b
“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ ” – Luke 15:4-6
There does not appear to be much rust. It looks like a xylophone. The picture is too small for me to see. It could be a lyre maybe.
Dulcimer. I have heard a few country music groups talk about a dulcimer. I had no idea what it was. Thank you for explaining.
