Ever wonder where pallets come from?
Did you assume, like I did, that they are made in a pallet factory?
Maybe they're made from "reject" wood. The second stringers. The stuff that wasn't considered good enough to be in a fancy home. A lot of people know that feeling. But that's changing - pallet wood is in! Not only is it a warehouse necessity, but thanks to creative crafters, pallet wood is welcome in the home.
So back to our original question...where do pallets come from? I discovered the answer on my Saturday photo drive...
They grow in Pallet Fields in Bixby, Oklahoma!
1 Corinthians 1:28-31 The Message (MSG)
Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ.
