About Me

My Photo
1Peter 4:10 says, Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. This is my goal. Burlap Street is a small company that sells mostly upholstered headboards, benches, and some painted pieces of furniture. I set up at Scott Antique Market the second weekend of every month in Atlanta, GA. I can also do custom paint techniques on your furniture or cabinets that are in need of a makeover. Most of our products have been recycled and made new again. I like the idea of giving new life to something old. My homebase is in the beautiful north GA mountains, Sautee Nacoochee, and I am local to the Atlanta area. If you are interested in any of my products, please reach me at burlapstreet@gmail.com or 404-274-5506.I am on Facebook too!

August/September Scott Antique Market

Thank you for a super fantastic July Market. I will not be attending the August Scott Antique Market but will be there for the September show.  I will be in the South Building. Section I-13 as always.  I will be taking custom orders thru the month of August. Call me at 404-274-5506 if you have any questions about placing custom orders. Or you can also email me at burlapstreet@gmail.com . Also visit Burlap Street on facebook.
You can look under current inventory post on this blog to see styles and pricing. Call for Delivery pricing.

We also do cabinets, furniture painting/glazing, and interior/exterior painting in the Metro area.

Every month I like to include a teaching about the Christ who saved my eternal soul nine years ago.

Christ's atonement is substitutionary, meaning he took the death that we deserve for breaking God's law and then imparted his righteousness to us after salvation. So God see us clothed in the righteousness of Christ. God cannot look at sin. This is known as the Great Substitutionary Atonement but it was also legal.  Legality deals with the law.  Sin is breaking the law of God.  When a law is broken, a punishment is incurred.  There is no punishment without law, and there is no law without punishment.  When a person is sentenced to time in prison, this is done based upon the requirements of the law.  The required sentence upon one who breaks the law of God is death.
2 Cor. 1:9, "indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves in order that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead."
Paul tells us that we had a "sentence of death."  This sentence is due to our breaking the law of God.  Therefore, we were legally guilty before God because we broke his law.  Furthermore, when Jesus was on the cross, he said "It is finished!" (John 19:30). In Greek it is, "tetelistai," and it was a legal term.
"The sixth word or saying that Jesus spoke from the cross was the single Greek work tetelestai which means 'It is finished.Papyri receipts for taxes have been recovered with the word tetelestai written across them, meaning "paid in full."  This word on Jesus’ lips was significant.  When He said, "It is finished" (not "I am finished"), He meant His redemptive work was completed.  He had been made sin for people (2 Cor. 5:21) and had suffered the penalty of God’s justice which sin deserved."2
Jesus knew the culture, and he specifically used that word "tetelestai," which was used in legal statements in ancient Israel when a legal debt had been fully paid.  Why was this necessary legally?  Because sin only has power because of the law (legality) of God.  The law has a punishment, and the punishment is death.
  • 1 Cor. 15:56, "The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law."
  • Rom. 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
The whole atoning work of Christ was a legal action where Jesus substituted himself for sinners and paid the legal requirement of the punishment of sin--death.  This is what the scriptures teaches.
If you compare yourself with others you will always find somebody worse that will make you look morally good but if you use the law of Moses, the ten commandments, (have you ever told a lie, have you ever stolen anything, have you ever used God's name in vain, have you ever worshipped anything more than the God that gave you life) Then you are in serious need of a savior on judgement day. Put on Christ like you would cling to a parachute in a plane that was about to crash.

Wellspring Living in Atlanta

I want to let you in on how you helped support a great ministry if you purchased something or hired us to do a project for your home. A portion of all income at Burlap Street goes to this absolutely awesome ministry.  I love this place and the way it is managed.  I have personally volunteered at the women's facility and I love how they help women who have suffered.  And I love how they Invite Jesus into the healing process which to me is paramount for success.
Wellspring is a program that has been in place since 2001. It was started by Mary Frances Bowley. She wanted to help girls who are in trouble. Girls who are on drugs, on the street, abused, and /or involved in prostitution and sex trafficking. Wellspring Living rescues women and girls. They provide them shelter, education, counseling and a future. 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused before the age of 18. Girls who are abused have a higher rate of becoming victim to the sex trade and from there, trafficking. According to the U.N., human trafficking is considered the fastest growing criminal industry in the world.  Shocking and depressing. Millions of women and children are kidnapped, or coerced and taken into captivity every year. They are forced into a lifestyle of prostitution and drugs. 27 million men, women, and children are trapped in slavery today – more than any other time in human history.  People often think it is an international problem but it is here in the states!!  Atlanta is the third largest hub for sex trafficking in the U.S. 
Most women and girls in this lifestyle will have a very difficult time getting out and will even die there. But there are incredible people like Mary Frances, who decided she wouldn't sit by and let it happen, she would fight it. Wellspring has become a nationally recognized organization in the fight against sex trafficking.  When you step out in faith, The Lord does mighty things and moves thru his people. We just have to hear the call and be obedient.   If you already have a purpose that is dear to you, just your prayers for the ministry are appreciated, if not, you can give to Wellspring Living. We just wanted others to be aware of a great place to help here in Atlanta, and to also know, that everyone of us can do something to change our world, no matter how small that something may seem. Just take a step. Indifference is not an option. To learn more about Wellspring Living go to www.wellspringliving.org.  Some  things you can do at a local level are getting educated and learn the facts. Then, boldly use social media and opportunities in your community and sphere of influence to speak up.
Become an intern at an organization fighting slavery and/or trafficking on a local, national, and/or global scale. Use your gifts, talents, and time to make a difference.  Always always always pray for the people who are trapped, and last but not least give. God gives to us so that we may give to others.  To learn more about Wellspring Living go to www.wellspringliving.org

Above all else guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23
